Why we started this

Over 900 people applied to rent a room in my house in Ashbrook in early 2022. I went on to research the number of empty bedrooms in Limerick and found that over 60,000 bedrooms in Limerick City are empty every night.
This project helps homeowners with empty bedrooms who would like additional income to find great lodgers.
