Group Expected To Recommend Airbnb Clampdown In Dublin


Share this article


A clampdown on short term holiday lets is expected to be announced in a bid to free up homes.

The government is looking at ways to restrict the number of properties being advertised on sites like Airbnb in parts of the country where there's a housing shortage.

According to the Irish Independent, an expert group tasked with regulating the sector is to recommend a licensing system.

It's believed this would involve restricting the number of days a property could be rented for.

It's understood people in rural areas that are unaffected by the housing crisis will not be regulated in the same way.

A recent Daft.ie report showed that of the available homes to rent in Dublin, over half (53%) were being advertised to tourists on sites like Airbnb, rather than those seeking long-term tenancies.

The holiday letting site claimed the survey made misleading assumptions about its community.
