I booked the moment it was announced just to be on safe side! But was still expensive. We are staying on a barge! It's called Dublin Barge Hire and we get the whole barge to ourselves, you can even cruise it down a short stretch of the canal if you want but doubt we will after hubby has been on Guinness fest~a~thon. It was about €550 euros I think for the whole boat and was cheaper to book directly with them. I also booked a hotel nearer to Croke Park called Castle hotel as it's only 0.6 miles away. I have had some problems with mobility and wanted to ensure (if there any problems) I also had opportunity to be closer. It's got free cancellation so I'll have to make my decision a few weeks before...fingers crossed we will be good for the barge as we are staying 3 nights and will be brilliant.! I could see how accommodation rocketed shortly after it was announced. If I lived there I would give up rooms for fellow fans!

At this stage is more a matter of where they have availability at the price you're willing to pay

Check with Google maps the distance from Croke Park

Don't forget Trivago, Airbnb, Hostelworld, or a simple search of B&B

It might be an idea to make a list from Booking and then check directly with the hotel. Some of them might prefer a direct reservation instead of paying commission to Booking.com

Anyway as soon as you find something at a decent price and with free policy cancellation just book it and then keep checking getting close to the date

Unless I get lucky in the general sale on Monday I may have two rooms at the Leeson Lodge to sell at face value, think its about 2.5 miles from the venue. See how I get on Monday, I think I could get rid of them on cancelon.com no problem, think Dublin's going to be hoaching that weekend and hotel rooms will be at a premium.

The Croke Park hotel for me, will probably only be able to eat beans between now and then to pay for it, but life is for living and we only get one shot so f**k it is what I say!

I'm going to Amsterdam this time.

But this is just my word, and i'll hope you have the time of your life!  :)
