Hundreds of refugees are to be housed in Stradbally, Co Laois following the conclusion of the Electric Picnic festival.
The Department of Integration has confirmed to Newstalk that it has signed a contract for use of a site from September 5th.
It follows the announcement that Ukrainians arriving in Ireland will likely be housed in tented accommodation from next week.
There are over 24,600 beneficiaries of temporary protection in Ireland, and the Government has struggled to find housing for them all.
The summer months have seen an increase in the number of arrivals from Ukraine, with more than 10,000 people fleeing here since May 1st - an average of around 650 people per week.
The Department of Integration has said the Stradbally contract is for a six-week period and will have a capacity of 750, which will be "used on a phased, contingency basis".
A spokesperson said: "The accommodation at the site is for very short-term use, and efforts will be made to secure short-term accommodation, from the existing departmental portfolio, for those who will be placed there.
"The provider has stated that the contract can commence on Tuesday 5th September 2023, on a phased basis, with full occupancy of 750 Beneficiaries of Temporary Protection from Ukraine (BOTPs) by Thursday 7th September 2023."
Since February 2021, the department has provided over 92,400 people seeking refuge with State-sourced accommodation, which continues to increase.
This is made up of 69,518 people who have fled the war in Ukraine and 22,700 people seeking international protection.
The department said a "small number" of new arrivals have already been placed in tents, and this will increase as new locations for tented facilities come onstream.
"Vulnerable arrivals will be prioritised for any non-tented accommodation available," the spokesperson added.
