Why work with Dub Rooms?

Our Communitiy Members

We have two large communities, students interested in third level education (Dubjobs) and expats living in Dublin looking for accommodation (Expats Dublin).

Guest Matching

We gather detailed information from both hosts and guests to ensure we create the best match. We can also source guests interested in provide help around the home in exchange for lower rents.

Support

We provide support to hosts in the form of predefined rules and guidance on how to rent out your home.

Free Service

We don't charge the host for our service. We make our money by charging a booking fee to the guest.

Medium Term Lettings

We offer the flexibility in renting out a room in your home for shorter terms from 22 days up to 18 months. You can rent your room out for a duration that suits you.

Independent Adults

We only deal with independent adults so there will be no expectation to provide meals. You can of course provide extra services to guests as you wish.

How to become a host on Dub Rooms

Complete Our Online Form

You can either book a call back and we can collect your information over the phone or you can fill in our detail online form. Certain details such as your full name and exact address are never shown publicly.  We only show the general area of your property.

Once you have been approved and provided all of the relevant information about yourself, your home, the room and picture of the room you will be listed on our website.

When you room is listed you will then receive requests to book your room. We can manage your listing for you and contact you with interested guests or you can manage the booking process yourself though our website.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any specific questions you’d like to ask the guest we would be happy to get the answers for you.

If you have any specific questions you’d like to ask guests we would encourage you to add these to your listing.

We ask guests to provide detailed information about themselves so you can decide if they are a match for you.

It will include:

  1. Age and gender
  2. Why they are coming to Dublin 
  3. If they are professionals or students and some information on their course or job.
  4. Waking hours
  5. Where they are from
  6. Level of English
  7. Interests and hobbies.

We only take a booking fee from the guest. It is up to yourself to agree with the guest what is the most convenient payment method for you.

We would recommend, depending on the term, rent is paid weekly into your bank account. And you also collect one week rent as a deposit. 

In general, rentals will fall under the rent a room scheme which allows you to receive up to a max of €14,000 per year tax free. Please note this is the full payment received from the guest, including any payments for bills. 

The relief does not apply when letting a room for less than 28 days to guests who are using the room for leisure or business. But it does apply for less than 28 days when the guest is a student. 

The above may change so always refer to revenue’s website for guidance or speak to an accountant. 

If you live in a remote area or an area no serviced well by public transport please flag this in your listing.

The majority of our guests will not have a car so lack of public transport could be an issue.

No. Within our general rules guests are not allowed to bring anyone into your home without your permission.

If you are renting a room in your principal residence you are not required to register with the RTB. 

Please see the citizens information website for further information.

No, we never show your full name or address on our website.
