So the Presidents Cup was as much of a boon for Dublin as officials thought it would be.
Record-breaking, in fact.
The city took in $288,568 in bed-tax revenue from hotel rooms during October, the month in which the tournament was held. That’s the most money collected in a month since the city began tracking the numbers in 1988.
It’s a 22 percent increase over the same month last year and almost $26,000 more than the previous record of June 2008.
