Pedestrianisation on Merrion Row & Capel St

Dublin City Council has brought forward a number of pedestrianisation initiatives and consultations to improve public realm and outdoor space within the city centre in preparation for our Outdoor Summer.


The Chamber backed the business-led calls to significantly enhance the pedestrianisation on Merrion Row. In particular, we commended the use of trial runs and pilot programmes and how improving public realm and pedestrian access brings us closer to achieving the 15 Minute City, you can read our submission here. There was a significant positive response to the consultation with over 93% of respondents in favour, the proposed trial will take place from 6am on Saturday May 15th until 11pm on Sunday May 16th.


There is also a consultation live on increasing pedestrian space on Capel St, the deadline is the 14th of May and you can submit your views here.
