Enjoy all the festivities and shopping that Dublin’s city centre has to offer each Christmas via Dublin Bus, Luas and don’t forget the fantastic Dublin Bike Scheme! There is a huge array of car parking facitilites throughout the City Centre that will make your shopping experience even better.

Dublin City Council’s Christmas Parking Promotion 2013 can be availed of by motorists who pay for their on-street parking using the Retail Parking payment option in any of Payzone’s retail agents across the city.  Motorists who pay for a minimum of one hour on-street parking in any zone, at any time during the month of December will get an additional hour free. Dublin City Council expanded its parking payment methods in Dublin City in June of this year with the Retail Parking payment option operated by Payzone.

A complimentary offering to the hugely successful pay by phone Parking Tag service, the pay in store option allows motorists to go to their nearest convenience store (Newsagents, Spar, Centra, Londis, SuperValu, Mace etc.) which is a Payzone outlet and pay for parking. Motorists provide their car registration, the zone colour that they are parked in and duration of stay.  Motorists are not required to return to their car with their receipt they simply pay and walk. The transaction is processed in real time, which gives parking enforcers visibility of the payment made. A full list of participating stores (almost 300 in Dublin City) can be found at www.payzone.ie.
