Interviews at a Garda station

Gardaí will often seek to interview suspects or witnesses at a Garda station. They can do this by arresting you, or by asking you to assist them with their enquiries voluntarily. If you choose to come to a Garda station voluntarily, you are free to leave the station at any time unless you are arrested.

You have a right to be represented and advised by your solicitor in any interview with Gardaí. You can find contact details for solicitors who have indicated that they are available to attend Garda stations in different divisions using the free Find a Garda Station Solicitor service.
