    Tez is asking about roads that you pay to use in Dublin he read somewhere that there is number plate recognition on a the M50 Dublin ring road coming out of Dublin which is where we would be going on the ferry in september and that you would have to pay a fee to use that road and unless you paid by 8pm the next day you could be heavily fined, deos anyone know of this? :Eek!:

    If you use the M50 north of Dublin you have the toll but as far as I'm aware the southern M50 in toll free. There is also a toll road around Kinegad.
    Where are you going first?

    Was over there about 2 months ago and the only toll I know of is the motorway traveling south of Dublin,having said that,it was not expensive.
    I traveled from Dublin to Cork and can`t remember exactly how much,but nothing to worry about.
    First I have heard about a congestion charge,if there was one 2 months ago am sure they would have sent me a bill by now.

    The northern M50 has toll booths going to the airport or if you drive straight through you can pay in any garage.Don't know how they notify you if you a visitor
    The southern M50 you pay coming into Dublin in Mullingar (Kinegad bypass) and going out of Dublin at the same place.

    If your going South go via Bray to Wexford etc and you wont need to pay

    About 2 Euro and the avoid bottle necks. The M50 north is busy no matter when you travel.

    On your travels don't forget to come to the west Mayo and Donegal are two lovely counties.
    If you come to Connemara comr through leenane andlouisburgh to Westport and then onto Achill Island, Keel has a large campsite right on the beach.
