Designated Quiet Areas
Dublin City Council has designated a number of locations around in Dublin as 'Quiet Areas'.
Quiet Areas in an urban agglomeration context are not necessarily areas without or with reduced noise. They may have a range of other qualifying characteristics which when combined with their low environmental sound levels (as identified by the noise mapping process) mean they can provide people with a more tranquil space to visit, away from the noisier areas of the city.
Dublin City Council has developed a number of criteria and a process for identifying candidate Quiet Areas and further details are included within the report that can be downloaded from the link below.
On the basis of the criteria and process developed, the following 8 locations have been designated as ‘Quiet Areas’ in Dublin City:
- Blessington Basin, Blessington Street
- Edenmore Park, Raheny
- Mount Bernard Park, Shandon Park, Phibsborough
- Dollymount SSA, Clontarf (terrestrial area only)
- St. Anne’s Park, Raheny
- Palmerston Park, Dartry
- Ranelagh Gardens, Ranelagh
- The Cabbage Gardens, Cathedral Lane, D2
More details can be found in the report below.
Round 4 Noise Action Plan process will include a review of the above eight sites in addition to the consideration of new sites that may be identified through a review of the Strategic Noise Maps prepared for Round 4.
