I know some of the big chains are more like 1200€ a month.

That sounds about fair for full-time until 6.00. The more I think about it the more expensive this place seems

A creche closing at 2:30 seems fairly nonsensical.

Crèche spots tend to become available over the summer as kids getting ready for school ate sometimes taken out earlier so they can move the little ones up to the next room. I would get on a waiting list for ones that suit you best location wise. An hour by public transport seems crazy. Would you consider a child miner temporarily?

Your child will be elegible for ecce nect September. It might be worthwhile to get their name down on every waiting list you can for this and get a minder in the meantime.
When ecce starts minder can take him there and collect as only three hours of the day. Social needs will be met but you'll have the flexibility of a minder too.
There's a facebook page where you can post jobs for minders, search Childminders Dublin South or Childminders Dublin north. Also schooldays, mindme and rollercoaster websites.
Checking back regularly enough with local creches to see how the waiting list is moving can also help. This is how we got my lad into our desired creche. Think they got sick of me!
850 seems too much for those hours. 2.30 pick up is crazy early. Best of luck, its stressful but will get sorted.

Are you choosing to collect him at 14:30?
850pm for Dublin for full time creche care is cheap but not for the hours you mention unless it it you deciding to collect at 14:30 but the creche is still open. A registered insured childminder would be cheaper for those hours.
