Want to make some extra money from that spare house on your land?

Did you buy land a number of years ago that included a house and it’s just sitting there empty?

Then you should start thinking about letting it as a holiday home and earn yourself an extra income.

Hogans Irish Cottages is a bookings agent that offer self catering holidays to Ireland and are interested in finding property owners who have vacant properties that might be suitable for holiday letting.

The company currently manages over 750 properties across Ireland and many of their property owners stay with them year after year.

If you think that vacant house is suitable for letting, Hogans will arrange for their Regional Manager to visit your property at a time that suits you – with no obligation.

On the visit, the Regional Manager will take a look around to check suitability and make recommendations to maximise the potential of your holiday property.

It’s a great opportunity to get your questions answered by a dedicated representative and deal with any concerns.

After that it’s just a matter of a few forms and Hogans will introduce your property to hundreds of thousands of holiday makers.

Some of the cottages already with Hogans achieve as many as 37 bookings a year.

Hogans Irish Cottages will take care of all your bookings, payments, customer services and owner care. They do not manage the cleaning but can help you find a local cleaner if you need one.

Other agencies may charge less, but Hogans will get you more bookings and year-round income.
