The Boss is playing in the RDS in the summer of 2023.

It's cheaper to fly to Rome and watch Bruce Springsteen play then it is to stay in Dublin.

That's according to Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty who spoke about the exorbitant price of hotels today.

The price comparison website shows that a night in a Dublin hotel comes in at 351 euro for the gig.

The hotel industry appears to be cashing in on the losses incurred during the pandemic.

There has been no response from the Irish Hotels Federation on the issue.

Pearse Doherty is Sinn Féin's spokesman on Finance and spoke on the matter in the Dáil.

He gave an example of those travelling to the capital and how much it would set them back.

"With the cost of the tickets and with the cost of the hotel, it was going to cost them in region of 600 euro."
