Short-term Rental assistance

Post New Topic

My Husband and I and our dog are moving to Limerick from Syracuse, NY for 3 months for him to do research at the law school there. Does anyone have suggestions about who to contact to find a short-term furnished rental for 3 months.
We have been looking at the limited web sites, but wondered if realtors handle these kinds of requests.
Any suggestions?

Yes, many Estate Agents do handle apartment rentals. For 3 months may be tougher, but you can ask. I think the problem comes with agent's commission. Usual would be for a year, but maybe they have some short term due to schools there. You might check with school also.

Have you tried the Sabbatical Homes site? US based. They do houseswaps but also rentals for academics (but not exclusively so). My friend living in North Carolina has recently rented a place for six weeks in Dublin. Worth a look.
