Dún Laoghaire - Rathdown Revaluation

Last updated at 11:08 on 15/05/2020

Welcome to the Valuation Office information page for the revaluation of all rateable properties in the local authority area of Dún Laoghaire - Rathdown County Council. From this page you can keep up to date with the Revaluation activity being carried out by the Valuation Office in your area.


Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government agreed with the Commissioner of Valuation that the Commissioner will defer the revaluation of rateable properties in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council area until 2021.

New valuations arising from the revaluation of the rating authority area of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown will now be finalised in September 2021 and become effective for rates purposes from 2022 onwards. This is in line with the timeline for finalisation of new valuations in the Reval 2021 Local Authorities of Clare, Donegal, Galway, Kerry and Mayo County Councils and Galway City Council.

This decision relates specifically to the revaluation of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, which had been scheduled for completion in 2020, and has no impact beyond that.

A letter has issued to all ratepayers regarding the deferral

Previous Updates:

On 15th October 2019 the Commissioner of Valuation, John O’Sullivan, signed a Valuation Order for the rating authority area of Dún Laoghaire - Rathdown County Council.

The signing of the new Valuation Order follows the completion of a statutory consultation process between the Commissioner of Valuation, the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government and Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council.

The revaluation is part of an ongoing national programme to ensure that the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland reflect the contemporary business environment. The purpose of revaluation is to bring increased transparency and more equity to the local authority rating system. Following revaluation, there is a much closer and uniform relationship between the current annual rental values of commercial properties and their commercial rates liability.

Neither residential property nor agricultural lands are rateable and consequently are not affected by the revaluation.

The new valuations for the areas undergoing revaluation will be published in 2020 and become effective for rates purposes from 2021 onwards.
