    Its not that far but try connolly station car park. Some stations charge €2 a day or €8 a week i think so it may be the same there.

    You would be broke paying it though. I think the four courts does good deals Harry. 5 or 6 quid a day. And there is parking at the temple where its only pay and display 7-10 then free all day, but its a bit out of your way

    Nah.Fleet st car park wont give us a discount or a yearly payment(eg €50 in the car park in Tallaght for the year) and are charging the normal hourly rate,something like €3.10 an hour.And the new shop doesnt have a yard to park in.

    Connolly Station is €7 for 24 hours (1.50 per hour)so if there was someone in your job on a different shift you might be able to share the expense. There is free on road parking in Buckingham Street, across the road from Connolly.

    Taxi would cost me €20 every day.

    Jervis do a thing where you can prebuy 5 parking tickets for €40. Works out at €8 a day. If 2 people normally pay €2 in one way buses its the same price. Reckon €8 is about the cheapest you'll get in town

    id just drive around the area and find a free spot somewhere and walk the rest of the way

    or speak to the manager and try work out a deal where they take something out of your wages every week and just park in the car park
