A number of Dublin streets will be pedestrianised as part of a trial which is due to start at the end of July.

Taking place over four weekends, the scheme will see footpaths used for tables and chairs on the following city centre streets:

  • Anne Street South from the junction of Dawson Street
  • Duke Street from the junction of Dawson Street
  • South William Street from the Brown Thomas car park exit to Chatham Row
  • Drury Street from Fade Street to the Drury Street car park
  • Dame Court from Exchequer Street

The pedestrianisation trials will run over the weekends of July 25/26, August 1/2, August 9/10 and August 16/17, between the hours of 11am and 7pm.

A similar trial ran on Dame Street last summer and the upcoming scheme is aimed at increasing footfall around the Grafton Street area which is still at around 20% of pre-Covid levels.
