M50 toll

The M50 toll motorway[1] in Dublin is the busiest motorway in Ireland. It begins at Dublin Port, running northward through the Dublin Port Tunnel and along a portion of the Airport Motorway. M50 toll motorway then turns west at its junction with the M1, circling the northern, western and southern suburbs of Dublin. Later the M50 toll motorway merges with the M11 at Shankill in South East Dublin. The road forms part of European route E01.

The M50 toll tolling system is a barrier-free type toll system that is to be paid by 8pm the following day. The toll is located between Junction 6 and Junction 7 on the M50 and is clearly marked with purple ‘Toll’ signs overhead. All vehicles using the section of the M50 between Junction 6 (N3 Blanchardstown) and Junction 7 (N4 Lucan) are liable to pay a toll. 

The M50 Toll Toll Calculator calculates toll and tolls for all other toll motorways, roads, bridges and tunnels in Ireland for cars, trucks, trailers, caravans, motorhomes and motorcycles for peak and off-peak hours.
