12:41 Wednesday 13th of September 2017

Homestay.com - similar to Airbnb - is looking for families in Co Kildare to rent rooms in their homes.

Households can avail of the little-used Government's Rent A Room Scheme which means you can earn up to €14,000 a year tax-free.

Homestay.com began in Ireland in 2013 and has several thousand properties on its books - but it wants more.

People register their homes on the website with photographs, and guests can then contact the host if they are interested.

Host homes tend to be families, and they can be ideal for students and those relocating from another country.

Average stays are 12 nights and earnings for hosts can be about €1,000 per month.

If you have a story or want to send photos or videos to us please contact the KildareNow editorial team. via our Facebook, via our email at [email protected] or on 045 409350 during office hours.
