Extortionate. I won't be returning.
The last time I was there it was €2/hour. Are you sure you haven't made a mistake somewhere here?

I actually requested a receipt, I have the printout, stating entry and departure times, total of €9 for just over 2 hours, no mistake.

Do City council staff have to pay full whack for parking in there?

Same thing happened me recently - won't use it again either. ... Fool me once - shame on you , Fool me twice - shame one me.

How much of that money goes to the developer - how much goes to the City? I know the Lord Mayor's salary and Councillors salary/expenses need to be paid.

Back on topic - great to see a few developments happening - it will breathe more life into the city.

I think new businesses opening in the city centre is a good thing.

the elysian is the representation of sheer stupidity/gobshitery/failure/snobbery that the celtic tiger represented. it's hilarious that a discount supermarket is opening there.
