Service Update - Parking Services


No charges will apply for on street parking in the city. However we would ask you to park safely, have regard to other road users and follow the parking regulations e.g. please do not park in spaces provided for disabled persons. Enforcement action will also be taken against dangerous parking eg parking blocking a pedestrian crossing.

No parking charges will apply to Cork City Council-controlled on and off-street parking in Douglas either.

Residents Parking Permits:

No penalty will apply to Residents Permit Holders for parking on street if your permit is due for renewal while the offices are closed due to Covid-19.  If you wish to renew your parking permit you can post your application form along with the required documentation and relevant fee (postal order, bank draft or cheque made payable to Cork City Council) to Cork City Council, Roads Operations – Traffic Department, City Hall, Cork.

Cork City Council Car Parks:

Cork City Council is also making its multi-storey car parks ( Paul St & North Main St  ) free so we can help the public to access city centre services eg shopping facilities and the Mercy University Hospital.

Paul St Car Park's opening hours will be modified to match and support the adjacent shopping centre. The new opening hours are:

o   Monday to Saturday: 7am to 10.30pm

o   Sunday 9.30am to 8.30pm

Black Ash Park and Ride is closed.
