The snowballing growth of short-let rental and home-sharing sites such as Airbnb, HomeAway and VRBO has created a new world of places to stay, and with it, a mass of new landlords (hosts) and options for tenants (guests). To keep everything fair and above board, the authorities involved with the most change have introduced or amended their regulations to incorporate this transformation within the industry and residential and rental laws.
Dublin is one such city. A tourist mecca, the city bustles 12 months of the year. With a non-stop calendar of things to do, see and participate in, the new short-let platforms allowed residents to make a little extra money with a minimum amount of effort.
