IHF challenge to accommodation letting

The Irish Hotels Federation is  challenging  the renting  to visitors of a large student accommodation facility in Cork.amnis1019
 The IHF has sought a ruling from An Bord Pleanála on whether the use of Amnis House on Western Road in Cork for year-round, short-term letting represents a material change of use of the building which requires planning permission.
 However, the owner of Amnis House, a 30-unit facility which opened last year, denies that it has ever been used for short-term letting on a year-round basis. Western Road Student Ireland claimed the IHF was seeking clarification about a "hypothetical and totally irrelevant question".
The IHF referred the case for adjudication after complaining that Amnis House was advertising short-term lets on Booking.com last April.
It claimed the site listed it as one of its best-sellers in Cork, and had been welcoming guests since February 2019.

 

The IHF said the facility was also listed on another website, Expedia, where it was described as an aparthotel available for short-term rental between June and August.
 
Although it is still listed on both websites, bookings are no longer available. All units for the 2019/20 college year are listed as sold out.
