Cycling numbers in Dublin have more than doubled in the last decade. This increase means there is much more demand for cycle parking in the city. To keep up with this demand DCC have installed 5,956 cycle parking spaces since 2013, and are aiming to add another 2,000 cycle parking spaces in 2021 and 2022.
On-Street Cycle Parking
Cycle parking can be installed on publicly accessible land in suitable locations that have enough space. For cycle parking to be installed on a footpath, the path needs to be at least 3.3 metres wide. More space will be needed in areas of high footfall.
Cargobike Cycle Parking
Cycle parking for cargo bikes is now available at St Stephen’s Green and on Manor Place.
Indoor Cycle Parking
Drury Street Cycle Parking Facility
Indoor cycle parking in the heart of the city centre is available at Park Rite on Drury Street. The facility has 300 cycle parking spaces, including cargo bike spaces and bicycle maintenance area with basic tools for repairs. The facility is bright, spacious and is monitored by CCTV security cameras. Cycle parking at the Drury Street facility is available free of charge 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Six secure bike lockers have just been installed in Drury Street Car Park as part of an initial 12-month trial. The lockers will be available to hire on a long term basis to members of the general public.
