Barry's Hotel

A favourite among Kerry fans, Barry’s Hotel is available on Sunday night.

THE scramble for All-Ireland final tickets is in full swing, but if you’re planning on staying in the capital that weekend, you better have already booked!

As of this Friday morning, the only bed available in the city centre on the Saturday night is a double in the Maldron Hotel, Smithfield for the princely sum of €378.

Otherwise there are a few hotels at Dublin airport with a few rooms left (Bewleys at €199 and the Radisson €259).

Checking in on the Saturday and leaving Monday morning, hotels beds in Dublin city centre are selling out quick and are not light on the wallet.

The cheapest city centre hotel for a two night stay is the Hilton Hotel on Charlemont Place for €558.

If you really wanted to splash the cash the Conrad Hotel in St Stephen’s Green will cost you €908 while Trinity Lodge on the Green will cost a whopping €1,068 for two nights.

At this stage booking a bed for just the Sunday night of the match is a better option in terms of cost and choice of hotel.

Two hotels in Ballsbridge (the area where the team usually stays) look to be pretty decent value at this short notice. Waterloo House and Roxford Lodge House both cost, €99 for the night in the leafy D4 area.

If you want to edge yourself a bit closer to Croker, that great old Kerry meet-up point on O’Connell Street, The Gresham Hotel, is offering €208 for two people. Nearby, the Hotel George is a cheaper price of €179 also for two.

Another favourite down the years for Kerry supporters is Barry’s Hotel, near Parnell Square, a room for two there will cost €209 for the night of the final.

For those with certain priorities, the hotel closest to Copper Face Jacks, is O’Callaghan Stephens Green Hotel, on Harcourt street.

A twin room within spitting distance of the famous watering hole will cost €206 for the night of the big match…you can always push the beds together if you get lucky!
