They were discovered concealed in undergrowth at Killakee Mountain in Rathfarnham by a woman out walking her dog on Friday night. Some clothes were also found nearby.
Detectives are now trying to establish if the body is one of 19 missing women on their DNA database.
The disappeared women were part of a major gardaí investigation called Operation Trace.
A sample from one of the recovered bones was delivered to the Forensic Science Laboratory on Monday morning.
A DNA profile will then be compiled and compared to the DNA of the missing women, however, it may be one week before police receive the results.
