    Are there any free to use EV charging points around Dublin?

    Well technically anyone who has a charger on their house and isn't at home is a free charger 😁

    Same goes for any outdoor sockets you come across

    However, if you want to be boring and not get busted for stealing electricity, then probably the best bet is to check plug share

    Took a screenshot there and it looks like there's a few about Dublin

    Plug share is community maintained, although @zg3409 seems to do about 90% of the work 🙂

    So be aware that information can be outdated

    Also probably worth keeping in mind that free electricity tends to get abused, and you'll have people sitting on the charger all day.

    Also quite a few of those chargers might be private, for employees or guests of a business, you might get yelled at for hogging one

    Yes, where exactly in Dublin are you interested in? As said look on plugshare app to see free and paid ones.

    Its hardly worth the effort as charging at home is relatively cheap so you may only save 1 euro an hour for your effort.
