It was nice to see the Dublin hotels offer discounted prices to stranded commuters in Dublin during the mayhem caused by the icy conditions yesterday.
By early afternoon Dublin Bus services were suspended, rail services were over-subscribed and experiencing difficulties and car journeys were severely disrupted. It became clear that many commuters would face serious difficulty in their commute home and accommodation special offers for many Dublin hotels started flying around Twitter. I saw offers as low as €29 for the night on Twitter.
Twitter proved a great medium for timely information on the weather/travel conditions and also for hotel deals. Follow @HotelDealsEire on Twitter for our roundup of the best hotel offers in Ireland.
