Staycationers are being asked to fork out as much as €1,500 for a 4-star hotel for two people on a two-night break, as hotel accommodation prices sky-rocket during the summer months.

According to an Irish Independent price survey, the cheapest stay at a 4-star hotel in seven of Ireland’s cities and towns over the next 12 weekends stands at €320 for two people for two nights, not including breakfast.
