New car park rates will apply at Iarnród Éireann owned and operated car parks from 24 October.

The new rates see daily rates increase by 50 cent and weekly rates by €1 (€2 for Connolly, Heuston and Kent).

However, monthly rates will remain unchanged to benefit regular commuters.

Iarnród Éireann will also offer its parking promotion for annual tax saver ticket customers, which will give even greater discount for regular commuters.

These are the first changes to car parking rates in over three years, and revenue from car parking helps maintain the upkeep of car parks and fund general rail services.

To encourage customers who normally pay for parking with cash switch to Park by Text and reduce their parking costs, Iarnród Éireann with Park by Text are offering customers a two days for the price of one promotion at all stations, from 24 to 31 October.
