New Regulations Come Into Force For Short Term Letting Agents

People renting out properties for short-term letting could be fined 5,000 euro or jailed for six months from today. 

This could prove tricky for people wanting to advertise their properties on the likes of Air BNB and Booking.com.

With 10,000 people homeless across the country, it’s hoped the measures could release much needed housing into the market.

But Ireland is one of the most popular homesharing destinations in Europe, with the typical Irish host earning around €3,500 per year.
