Hosting Power - Ireland’s First Fair Accommodation Solution

Hosting Power Was founded in Dublin in 2014 to address the lack of affordable and comfortable accommodation available in Ireland.

At Hosting Power we believe in supplying comfortable and fairly priced housing for all, and we knew that Ireland was full of wonderful hosts willing to provide great accommodation at the right price.

Through our simple and user-friendly online system, we bring these hosts and guests together and support them every step of the way. We provide secure and affordable accommodation for guests and a steady regular income for hosts.
