Air b and b

Hi
I live in North kildare region in a house with a big yard beside my house which had old run down house sheds where people lived years ago on it.
Last summer I decided to do 1 of these sheds houses up. i have a good bit of the work done and was thinking of doing air b and b. Is there much demand for this in this area?
How many months would I get to rent for?
I would have no problem renting them but I would not like it full all the time.

Sorry if I'm misinterpreting, but the house you live in, is the big yard beside that (and an old abandoned property) or actually part of your property boundary?

People lived years ago on it, on your property or abandoned land? Might be issues with proving rights etc and land registry maps. Again, sorry if you're talking about a yard on your property. Just the way it's phrased.

Sheds aren’t housing stock. Unless you’re livestock.

If they are houses which were previously inhabited and you are just renovating, as long as you are not making material changes to it, you don’t need planning. As for Airbnb, check the new regs, shouldn’t be a problem and could be a really nice earner, not sure if this would considered letting a whole property as you are living on the property and only letting part of it.

No idea what area your in. Very vague.

So hard to tell if there's a market for it.

Air BnB survives of three things really.

City locations. For obvious reasons.

Tourist locations beside touristy things

Large hotels proximity. Were wedding guests want to stay local and hotel is full.

If it is a house, previously lived in, would not need planning to renovate it?

'years ago' would imply they haven't been used as a dwelling in quite some time so planning may still be required.

Even if planning were not required for use as a dwelling, it does not mean change of use would not be required for short term letting.

After what time span does a house become not a house? I’ve bought and renovated properties that were derelict and hadn’t been lived in for years, and did not require planning.

People did live in them why would I need planning?
The though of planning never entered my head. I haven't changed the structure.

Depends. The use may have expired.
Not enough info from the OP, they could be out houses ancillary to the main dwelling.

Seems to depend on degree of dereliction and whether house needs to be connected to mains/water. If already connected and in reasonable condition, I can’t find any definitive answer.
