Kildare Hotels Among Top Contributors Offering Accommodation For International Protection Seekers

The contracted capacity of Kildare places it among the top three counties nationwide.

Hotels in Kildare have emerged as a significant contributor in providing accommodation for international protection applicants within Ireland.

With four hotels across the county contracted to house International Protection applicants, Kildare offers a combined capacity to shelter 642 people.

The contracted capacity of Kildare places it among the top three counties nationwide.

While Dublin leads in capacity due to its larger size and population, Kildare's capacity surpasses that of several other counties, including Carlow, Cavan, and Sligo.

Cork, following Dublin, stands as the second-highest contributor in terms of accommodation capacity.

With seven contracted hotels, Cork offers shelter for up to 730 individuals.

Dublin leads the list with an extensive network of 21 contracted hotels, providing accommodation for 3,607 individuals.

The figures do not include former hotels, inns, lodges, and re-purposed accommodation retreat centres.
