Cycle Parking

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 publically 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.

If you have a suggestion for where cycle parking is needed, please complete the Covid Mobility Request Form or email [email protected]  Our cycle parking team will assess the spaces suggested and provide new cycle parking based on suitability and demand.

Cargobike Cycle Parking

Cycle parking for cargo bikes is now available at St Stephen’s Green and on Manor Place.
