It will cost nearly €161m to run Dáil and Seanad next year, figures obtained by Newstalk show.
This is a 15% increase on 2021 - and includes salaries of over €21m for TDs and Senators.
This year the cost of running the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission, which operates the Dáil and Seanad, is likely to be just under €140m.
The commission estimates this will increase to €160.7m in 2022.
This will include €16.8m to pay the salaries of 160 TDs - which equates to just over €100,000 each.
They will also get other allowances of nearly €9.2m, including payments for travel and accommodation.
While 60 Senators will get basic salaries of €4.5m, which is a little over €70,000 each - and other allowances of €1.2m in total.
People Before Profit TD Paul Murphy says the figures are too high.
"Almost 20% of the total money spent is going on TDs salaries, on expenses and on the pensions of former TDs.
"And that speaks to the very, very high and very, very out of touch levels of both salary expenses and pensions that TDs are getting.
"And that's something that every easily could and should be be cut".
"Really TDs and Senators should be on the average wage of ordinary people in this country, the average workers wage, so that they live the life of their constituents.
"They feel the pain, they feel the difficulties that other people experience".
Bar and catering staff in the Houses of the Oireachtas will be paid €2.2m altogether next year.
