Irish Self-Catering Accommodation Squeeze Hits Tourists and Investors, Industry Warns



Irish Self-Catering Federation advocates for exemption for existing businesses to operate without pending planning permission, addressing industry concerns.

The tourism industry is facing a squeeze on short-term self-catering accommodation, which could have far-reaching implications for both tourism and foreign investment, according to industry experts. Concerns have been raised about the impact of new laws that would mandate planning permission for self-catering accommodation, potentially exacerbating the existing shortage of beds for holidaymakers, especially at a time when hotels are already struggling to meet demand.


Irish Self-Catering Accommodation Squeeze Hits Tourists and Investors, Industry Warns

The proposed regulations have sparked fears that the tourism sector could face a significant setback, as the availability of self-catering accommodation plays a crucial role in attracting visitors and supporting the local economy. With hotels already facing challenges in accommodating tourists, any further restrictions on short-term rentals could lead to a decline in visitor numbers and revenue, ultimately affecting the overall growth of the industry.

Industry stakeholders are calling for a balanced approach that takes into account the needs of both tourists and local communities. While regulations are important for ensuring the safety and quality of accommodation, overly restrictive measures could stifle innovation and limit the options available to travelers. Finding a middle ground that allows for responsible growth in the tourism sector while addressing concerns about overcrowding and sustainability is essential for the long-term success of the industry.

The squeeze on short-term self-catering accommodation is a pressing issue that requires careful consideration and collaboration between stakeholders. Balancing the needs of tourists, local communities, and the industry as a whole is crucial for ensuring sustainable growth and maintaining the appeal of the destination for visitors.
