Allotments in Fingal County Council/Cuibhreann laistigh de Chomhairle Contae Fhine Gall

Fingal County Council manages approximately 900 allotments at four different sites throughout the County.  Three of our sites are located in the North County at Turvey in Donabate, Skerries and Balbriggan. The fourth site is located at Powerstown, close to Mulhuddart in the Dublin 15 area.

There are three different plot sizes available to rent: 50sqm, 100sqm and 200sqm (the 200sqm plots are only available at our Balbriggan and Turvey sites).  This means that there is an allotment plot to suit all levels of interest, experience and time commitment.

We have very active Allotment Committees operating at our allotment sites.  These committees represent and promote the interests of the plot holders.  All of our plot holders are required to become members of their Allotment Association.  The annual cost of joining is €10.  This single €10 fee applies regardless of the number of plots rented by an individual.  Fingal County Council works very closely with the Allotment Committees in dealing with any issues that may arise.

In 2018 we provided landscaping/clearing at a number of our sites. We installed metal access control bollards at our site in Powerstown.

In 2019 we connected the access gate at Skerries to the electricity network to make the gates fully automatic. A new mower was provided to Balbriggan.

Throughout 2021 we again plan to work very closely with the Allotment Committees to deliver improvements to all sites which will mean increased benefits and enjoyment experienced by all plot holders. We continue to provide portaloos and skips for use by members.
