Parking Regulations

Cavan County Council regulates illegal parking and manages parking spaces on public roads and in public car parks in towns throughout the county.  The management of parking makes our towns more accessible and attractive to shoppers, business people and tourists. 

Parking regulations (Cavan County Council Control of traffic and parking Bye-Laws 2016 and National Regulations and laws) are designed to make life more pleasant, more orderly and more convenient for both citizens and visitors to our county by:

  • Ensuring a regular turn-over of parking spaces
  • Increasing the number of parking spaces available to use
  • Reducing road obstructions and congestion

It is your responsibility to ensure you comply with the relevant laws when parking.  When parking anywhere in County Cavan it is your responsibility to check parking signs or meters to ensure you are following the correct parking procedure.

Cavan County Council currently operates parking restrictions in the towns listed below;

  • Bailieborough
  • Ballyconnell
  • Belturbet
  • Cavan
  • Cootehill
  • Kingscourt
  • Virginia

Many of the streets in these towns are limited to max 2 hour parking.  This means that Vehicles may be parked for up to a maximum stay of 2 hours on most streets, after which time the vehicle must not park again anywhere on that same street during the next hour.

Pay & display paid parking is in operation in Cavan Town only.  Parking is charged at 40 cents per hour in public car parks and 60 cents per hour on public streets.  Parking is also restricted to 2 hour maximum stay as above on most of the streets and car parks in Cavan Town. 

Longer stay parking is available on Farnham Street and in the Main Street & Connolly Street Car Parks.  Vehicles can be parked with no time restrictions in these three locations as long as a valid pay & display ticket is clearly displayed in their vehicle.
