A review of the Allotments Policy was carried out in September-October 2023. The policy review document and the updated Terms of License for Allotment Lettings are available below.

Applications for 2024 Season:

  • Applications will only be accepted from those who currently reside in the Fingal Administrative Area, from Monday 01st January to Wednesday 31st January 2024. Only one plot will be assigned to each household.
  • We cannot guarantee a plot for all those that apply: preference is given to those who wish to renew their plot and the remaining plots will be allocated by lottery in accordance with the updated 2024 Terms of License for Allotment Lettings. A waiting list will be created as part of the lottery process for any vacancies that may arise throughout the Season. The Council reserves the right to extend the waiting list for a further 12 months, i.e. applications may not be invited in January 2025 and those on the Waiting List created in 2024 will be offered any available plots for 2025 season.
  • Please note that plots are offered as is: there can be a lot of work involved with an allotment, especially at the beginning.


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.

Throughout 2024 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.
