Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy's admitted progress on tackling homelessness is too slow.
But he says the number of homeless families in hotels in the city is falling.
He was speaking in the Dáil after new national figures showed a record of number of over 8,300 people are now in emergency accommodation.
Minister Murphy says there are signs of improvement in Dublin.
"I know it's too slow, I know we need to do more - the Government recognises that.
"That's why we've increased our funding for homelessness and services next year, we've also increased our HAP (Housing Assistance Payment) supports for next year as well - as committed to in the budget for 2018.
"There are still 690 families in hotels.
"Any one family in a hotel or B&B is one too many, but it is significantly down on the high point that was reached in March earlier this year".
