Nineteen Dublin hotels each received payments in excess of €1 million last year to provide emergency accommodation for the homeless.
One hotel received payments of €4 million-€5 million, according to new figures provided by the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive, which confirmed the spend on providing temporary and emergency accommodation for the homeless increased 19 per cent to €170 million in 2019.
Last year hotels received payments from the executive totalling €56.6 million to provide emergency accommodation, and this represented an increase of 10.7 per cent on the €51.1 million paid out in 2018. That year 15 hotels received payments in excess of €1 million.
In response to a Freedom of Information request, the executive confirmed that of the 19 hotels, one had also received payments of €3 million-€4 million to accommodate the homeless last year.
A further four hotels received payments of €2 million-€3 million, with an additional 13 hotels receiving payments of €1 million-€2 million.
