We are flying into Shannon, renting car for 2 week trip around Ireland. When we get to Dublin we would like to park the car outside of town for the 3 days we will be sightseeing Dublin. Then catch cab back to car to continue trip. We are from the US so driving on left side will be experience enough without navigating city streets. We can use long term parking at the airport, and have actually done that before in Edinburgh, but wondering if another option is out there. Maybe an overnight Park and Ride? Just don't know what might be available. Thanks for any ideas out there!

Hi Jackie,
welcome to our Community. I have been told that there is a Park & Ride facility at the Luas Red Cowroundabout, which might suit you if you are travelling to Dublin on the M7 from Limerick/Shannon. Here’s the link: https://luas.ie/red-cow-p-and-r.html
It looks like the daily tariff is €4. You would then have to take your luggage on the Luas into the city centre, which is fine if you are travelling light, but not ideal if you have large, heavy suitcases.
I hope the above helps. Let us know how you get on.

Hi Jackie, 

It's so exciting you'll be travelling around the island for two whole weeks! :) Parking your rental car outside of the city is a great idea, as the city is easily explored on foot or by public transport

As mentioned in your other thread, there are park and ride options available near Dublin, and from there you can hop on the Luas (tram) into the city. You can buy 4 hour, 1 Day, Weekly and Monthly parking tickets, depending on how long you would like to stay. Would this be suitable? 
I hope you'll receive more tips, suggestions and ideas from our other members and experts, and please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need anything else! 

Warm regards,

Melin

Hi Jackie, Christoph is right, there's a park & ride at the Red Cow right on the main motorway from Limerick/Shannon to Dublin. The Luas tram stops there and is a brilliant service that will bring you straight into the city centre with no changes required, and it's no problem to wheel your cases on. Where is your Dublin accommodation/hotel and we can give you more advice on how to get there from the Luas?
You can use long or short term parking at the airport either and then get an airport bus into city centre in 30 minutes - you'd just have to drive an extra 30 mins on the motorway from the Red Cow to Airport if you wanted to do that. 
I hope this helps!

As mentioned previously/above (but typo on one) The Red Cow Roundabout might be a good option. Yes - that's what it's called. I parked there for Springsteen and took the Luas in (the tram).  Hours on the Luas are limited but not TOO limited.

Alternatively, we often stay in Athy rather than Dublin, as we're finding prices skyrocketing and service charges being added willy nilly.  So a small village on the train just outside of Dublin (like Athy) might be a good place to park.

Suggestions - hope you enjoy your stay!
