Renewed appeal for homes for Ukrainian refugees

The local-government sector is leading a renewed Government appeal for offers of unoccupied properties to provide temporary homes for those fleeing war in Ukraine. 

More than 60,000 people have arrived in Ireland from Ukraine, in need of safe and secure accommodation.

This renewed appeal aims to make use of unoccupied houses, apartments, or holiday homes to provide accommodation on a temporary basis.


A tax-free recognition payment of €800 per month is available for properties offered.

Property owners can offer homes at offerahome.ie or by contacting the local authority in which the property is located.

The local authority in which the property is located will be the point of contact for owners throughout the offer and assessment process.

Local authorities will match suitable properties to Ukrainian beneficiaries and can offer support in drawing up licence agreements and other arrangements.
