Dublin Considers Cable Car

April / May 2006

A private consortium is behind a spectacular proposal to build a 52 million euro cable car complex running 2.5 miles along the River Liffey in Dublin’s city centre. Property developer Barry Boland outlined a plan that would set cable cars running from Heuston Railway Station to Spencer Dock in the International Finance Services Centre.

Four cable cars would ferry visitors about 80 meters above the river, and each would have a capacity for 25 people. Tours in either direction would take about 20 minutes and projected ticket prices are 15 euros (just under $18).

The project would present an adventurous new tourist attraction, offering an aerial view of many landmarks in the capital – including the Four Courts, Christchurch and Guinness Brewery. Boland told the Irish Times that the scheme would include two new pedestrian bridges across the Liffey. Details on the project are at an advanced stage, but despite an enthusiastic reaction from Dublin City Council, the consortium has yet to apply for planning permission. ♦
