DublinBikes expansion construction starts

DublinbikesOn-street work on the expansion of DublinBikes is starting on Talbot Street. The current station is to have additional stands added to it. From dublinbikes.ie:

“Temporary Station Closure – Talbot Street
Talbot Street (station 38) will be temporarily closed from approximately 11:30am on Mon 14th Oct through to Sat 9th November to allow for the expansion of the existing station”

While extra stations are planned near to current stations, Talbot Street is the only existing station which will have stands added to it.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

Here’s our map showing the planned DublinBikes stations (red pins) along with current stations (green bikes):

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.


  1. Cannot wait for this. I’d love the be able to go much further by bike. Plus more bikes may offer a better availability as well. I do hope that in the future (roughly) Dublin 7 and 8 will also be served better as they seem not really as well served as the areas around them the current plan.
