The pedestrianisation trial of Capel Street and Parliament Street has been extended for an additional six weeks.
Dublin City Council has confirmed that the two streets, as well as sections of some surrounding roads, will continue to be pedestrianised on weekend evenings until the end of August.
The trial originally began on 11 June and was due to end next week, but will instead remain active until 29 August.
During the trial, the streets are closed to vehicles on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 6.30pm to 11.30pm.
Lord Mayor of Dublin Alison Gilliland said the council has received “overwhelmingly positive feedback from the public since the trial first began”.
“Businesses and their customers alike have enjoyed the space to dine out and pedestrians have enjoyed the extra space to walk around at their ease,” Gilliland said.
“It therefore makes perfect sense that it should continue, particularly given the uncertainty around indoor dining,” she said.
“I would encourage people to pop in and check it out if you haven’t done so already. There’s a great atmosphere in our City.”
Capel Street and Parliament Street are largely lined with restaurants and bars, where the empty roads have been used to facilitate outdoor dining.
Access for local residents will be maintained and there is no disruption to Luas services, the council said.
