Parking in Waterford

Waterford may not get as much publicity as Dublin or Cork, but this is the fifth-biggest city in Ireland. There’s nothing ‘provincial’ about the infrastructure here, and visitors find plenty of parking around town.

Any parking operated by the local city council is on a Pay and Display basis. If you’ve already spend time behind the wheel in Ireland, you’re probably familiar with this parking set-up already. If not, the process is straightforward and easy to decipher.

Pay and Display car parks are found on Jenkins’ Lane, Bolton Street and Millar’s Marsh (which is technically in Johnstown). Simply purchase a Pay and Display badge from the on-site ticket machine to prepay for your parking. If your time is about to expire and you leave your vehicle for longer, then you’ll to return to the machine and purchase additional time.

Pay and Display parking is enforced within the following hours:

Monday to Thursday – 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Friday – 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Saturday – 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Outside of these hours, parking is free. If you purchase time outside of these hours, the ticket will be applied to the next morning (i.e. at 8:30 a.m.).

You’ll also find that many of the restaurants and shops at Merchant’s Quay or along Cork Road and Manor Street offer complimentary parking for customers. For example, if you’re heading into Westgate Retail Park, Waterford Shopping Centre or the Regional Sports Centre, there will be no need to pay for parking.
