Free on-street parking on Saturdays in Limerick for summer months

Limerick City and County Council has announced that on-street parking in the city centre will be FREE on Saturdays throughout the months of July and August.  

Every Saturday for the summer months, there will be free parking in the core city centre area to make it even more attractive for people to come into the city for shopping.  


Limerick Free parking

Free parking in Limerick on Saturdays during July and August.

Traffic wardens will continue to work and as always will be focused on those who are parked illegally and helping to keep traffic flowing.

Parking will also be FREE on Saturdays in Abbeyfeale and Kilmallock. Newcastle West has always had FREE parking on Saturdays. 

The announcement comes as a suite of initiatives outlined in Guiding Limerick Through Covid-19 to boost visitors to the city centre is phased in. 

As part of plans to animate the city: 

·         The Panoramic Wheel has returned to Arthur’s Quay Park giving people unparalleled views of Limerick. 

·         Giant cutlery hanging from the air on Bedford Row/ Thomas St welcoming people back to the restaurants and cafés 

·         Giant Table and Chairs on the green space at Shannon Rowing Club, signalling that Limerick is open for business 

·         Costumed characters engaging with shoppers and diners on Saturday lunchtime and in the evening at 6pm. 

·         3D game painting in Arthur’s Quay Park. This is an idea that artist Mark Cronin came to the council with and he will be working on this interactive mural over a number of days. 

Limerick City and County Council has also put a call out to local artists, groups and creatives to get on board and propose new events to be held around the city and county, which will be funded by the local authority.

As the days continue more initiatives in Guiding Limerick through Covid-19 will come into effect across the city, including parklets, selected road closures, and additional cycle lanes.
