Radio Nova Coverage

Radio Nova is a regional radio station, licensed by Coimisiún na Meán (formerly the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland) to broadcast to Dublin City, County & Commuter Belt. The defined commuter belt covers an area from Mullingar to Dundalk, Arklow and Portlaoise, taking in one of the most affluent, upwardly mobile, parts of Ireland. Being a regional radio service, rather than a Dublin-only one, we are classified differently to Dublin radio services and offer enhanced value to advertisers.

Commuter Belt

Population of the Dublin Commuter Belt

The Dublin Commuter Belt is an extensive area around Dublin that takes in the counties of Wicklow, Kildare, Meath and extends into Westmeath & Louth including the towns of Bray, Greystones, Blessington, Naas, Newbridge, Clane, Kilcock, Leixlip, Celbridge, Trim, Navan, Dunboyne, Dunshaughlin, Drogheda and Dundalk. As of 2023, it is estimated that the population of the Dublin Commuter Belt region is approximately 1.7M and expected to rise to over 2M by 2023.

Radio Nova is the only Dublin-based radio service that has the Commuter Belt included in its catchment area as awarded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland / Coimisiún na Meán. As such, Radio Nova delivers an additional 30% in broadcast area over and above Dublin-based radio services.
