More than 1,000 beds have been sourced for the homeless community in Dublin city since the Covid-19 outbreak began, according to a report from the council.
The figure includes 400 rooms in eight different hotels.
Councillor Alison Gilliland says there are also plans to move 100 families from hotels into self-contained accommodation over the next four weeks.
She said: "They started sourcing a lot of individual rooms in hotels, but also (since) Air B and B (demand declined), we've been able to source a lot of apartments and we've been using these to get families out of emergency accommodation."
