Hosting on Airbnb during events, both local and international, can create incredible earning opportunities for Hosts. In 2022, Irish Hosts collectively earned over €3.2 million during the St. Patrick’s celebrations, with the typical Host earning just over €400 for the week3. This comes at a time of rising living costs, with the additional earnings helping many stay afloat during these tough economic times.

For those interested in sharing their home with guests this St. Patrick’s Day, Airbnb has made it easier than ever to get started. As part of the 2022 Winter Release, Airbnb introduced Airbnb Setup – an all-new, super easy way to list your home, including free one-to-one guidance from a Superhost and for your first booking, you can choose to welcome an experienced guest who has at least three stays and a good track record on Airbnb. We’ve also expanded AirCover, now featuring even more top-to-bottom protection, with guest identity verification, reservation screening, and $3 million damage protection, including coverage for cars, boats, art and valuables.

About Airbnb.org

Airbnb.org is a nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating temporary stays for people in times of crisis around the world. Airbnb.org operates independently and leverages Airbnb, Inc.'s technology, services, and other resources at no charge to carry out Airbnb.org's charitable purpose.

This sparked a movement and marked the beginning of a program that allows Hosts on Airbnb to provide stays for people in times of need. Since then, the program has evolved to focus on emergency response and to help provide stays to evacuees, relief workers, refugees, asylum seekers, and frontline workers fighting the spread of COVID-19. Since then, Hosts have offered to open up their homes and helped provide accommodations to 100,000 people in times of need. Airbnb.org is a separate and independent entity from Airbnb, Inc. Airbnb, Inc. does not charge service fees for Airbnb.org supported stays on its platform.
