Saints, Scholars and Short-Term Lets: The Reality of AirBnB in Ireland,
A new documentary by PushPull Media Collective.
August 2018, in the midst of a nationwide housing emergency, there are roughly 10 times the available housing stock for rent on AirBnB in Dublin City as there are on Ireland’s leading property website daft.ie.
For this short documentary, we speak to those affected by AirBnB, from individuals being evicted to make way for AirBnB, to local business owners who cannot find housing for their staff due to short-term lets, to those on the front line campaigning for a change in this unregulated space. San Francisco Tenants Union filled us in on their experiences with AirBnB and the recent regulations that have been put in place there.
We also got the inside track from a company that services AirBnB properties in Dublin, who explain how they maneuver around London’s AirBnB regulations and how they anticipate doing the same in Dublin if regulations are enacted here.
