Oscailte 2017

Airbnb hosts in Ireland open up their homes and welcome people from around the world. They’re helping to grow an economy – and a culture – of sharing and helping to create a sense of belonging for guests. The Irish Airbnb Open – Airbnb Oscailte – is an annual event that brings together the host community from across Ireland. It’s our way of celebrating our Irish hosts for opening their doors and offering warm welcomes to the thousands of visitors who come to Ireland each year. It’s also an opportunity for us to listen, engage and support the community we value.
