What part of the city are you planning to shop in? There is a car park in Jervis Street that has an all-day rate. I think it was about €15 when I last used it

The Q Park car parks offer decent pre-pay all-day rates. http://www.q-park.ie/

Make sure to book the day before - you can't book these rates on the same day.

Most of the bigger retail outlets are on site in places such as Blanchardstown and Liffey Valley where you can shop to your hearts content. Do you need to go into the city particularly?

The Yellow Zone in Dublin is about €2.80 per hour. I put €3 in the meter today on St. Stephens Green. I manage to get a fair bit done in that hour.

If you travel on a Sunday you can find lots of Free Parking. If you travel on a Saturday there are places within a 10 minute walk to St. Stephens Green where you can also park for free. Try along by the Canal/Mespil Road area. Midweek it's pay all the way. AND you will be clamped if you don't pay and display.

There is a multi storey car park on Drury St (opposite Brooks Hotel), costs €2.90 per hour and is less than 5 minutes walk from the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. Here's a link to the route from College Green - http://goo.gl/maps/ghmRX

There is also a car park in the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, but they charge €4 per hour.

You will probably find that the city car parks are full when you go looking for them, the Illac Centre used to be our car park of choice. Nowadays we park (free) at the Blanchardstown shopping centre and take the bus into town. Driving around Dublin these days is a pain in the butt.

I had all day free parking today less than 10 minutes from St. Stephens Green. It was interesting watching some people paying for parking 20 yds away from a free parking zone. Look at the signage...
