gotta love sensationalism in journalism.
"Some owners of houses near the K Club, the Michael Smurfit-owned Co Kildare golf course hosting the event next month, have attempted to rent out their properties for tens of thousands of pounds for the week."
Tens of thousands of pounds?I know for a fact this is not true(as stated above) being from so close to it I know plenty of people who did this and didnt get anywhere near 1000 for the week let alone "tens of thousands"
The point here is not peoples stupidity in paying 2k for a hotel,its the fact that most places are charging these sums.Im months trying to get accom for a decent price.Another little piece from that article says "The imminent arrival of Tiger Woods and the other leading American golfers has seen hotel bills in Dublin shoot up by 24 per cent"
Wow,24% compared to the 1900% in the article about ukraine above,anyway this is a pointless and completely off topic conversation for the portal thread
