Beginning of the road from Airbnb right back to B&B
A B&B or not a B&B? That was the question - first for Dublin City Council and latterly for an Bord Pleanála.
The council and now the appeals board have both conferred commercial status of sorts for planning on a privately owned Temple Bar apartment which has been operating successfully as a short-let under the online global Airbnb umbrella.
So is a private home in Airbnb use a home or a commercial business? Before yesterday the answer was: "It's a private residence being used for short lets of course!"
