A Dublin hotel has attracted criticism for offering half-price rooms to people who "refuse" to pay water charges.

The offer requires the customer to present their Irish Water application pack "in the form of a paper airplane".

Upon presentation, the customer will be entitled to 50% off an overnight stay in the Phibsborough hotel.

The hotel added that customers "need to be imaginative with your airplane though", no "lame attempts" will be accepted.

Customers must book in advance and tell the hotel they will be presenting the pack on arrival.

The offer, posted on their Facebook Page, received over 1,300 shares on the social network.

The hotel recently gained attention on social media when it posted an image of the cover of Charlie Hebdo on their page next to an image of Sean Penn.

When contacted by, Irish Water confirmed they had seen the post but declined to comment.
