Filming in Dublin City
Welcome to Dublin City Council's one-stop service for filming in the city.
We aim to increase the number of productions shooting in Dublin, by supporting the audio-visual industries in the Dublin Region and acting as a coordinator between production companies and various government departments, in order to provide a seamless transition of your script to on-location filming.
Dublin City Council manages the city’s public domain and handles permits for over 4,000 on-street locations, many bridges, beaches and parks, as well as various interior civic properties.
We can advise you on a range of City Council services such as parking, road closures, traffic control, street furniture, waste management, Health and safety requirements, environmental and local issues surrounding your location; as well as other general film-related queries, such as public transportation and whether your production will be affected by utility works or other events in the city.
From critically acclaimed Irish Drama to Oscar winning movies, all have been shot in Dublin and have been making a big impact on the global scene for decades and we are here to help your production realise its true potential in Dublin.
