The alarm was raised shortly after 10pm last night.
According to the Irish Independent, a number of teenagers made the gruesome discovery in Moatview Gardens.
Ireland’s Garda police were last night examining claims that the body parts had been dumped from a vehicle.
A source told the newspaper: ‘There is a lot of speculation going around about who these remains belong to, but it is simply too early to say.
‘Further tests will be carried out in the morning before investigators can start to build a better understanding of who these body parts belonged to.’
Police were expected to examine their list of missing people to see if the body parts might belong to any of them.
Dublin City Coroner has been notified and a state pathologist is expected to visit the scene later on Tuesday.
Crime officers are currently examining the scene, which has been sealed off.
