Donegal supporters hoping to book rooms for the All-Ireland Final weekend on September 20 and 21 are finding most hotels already booked out.
The clash of the Ulster and Munster champions is proving a bonanza for the hotel trade in Dublin; a Dublin victory at the weekend would have seen less demand for the final weekend.
But Donegal won through in a memorable match.
However Kerry’s win over Mayo in Limerick on Saturday night game fans of The Kingdom a head start in the chase for hotel rooms.
The city centre sell-out of hotels has pushed up the prices of other rooms in the city.
A Donegal Daily survey could find accommodation in just 12 hotels, B&Bs or hostels in the greater Dublin area for All-Ireland weekend.
But those that are still available are very expensive.
Castleknock Hotel wanted 450 euro today for a double room – for just one night before the game.
The Shelbourne wanted 800 euro for a double room for the same night whilst the Stephen’s Green Hotel were looking for 1,049 euro for the Saturday night.
The most expensive hotel for September 20 was the Four Season; a double room there will set you back an astonishing TWO THOUSAND EURO!
The cheapest room we could find was at the Moat Lodge B&B in Lucan where a double room was 85 euro this morning.
