• www.HomeSwapper.ie  has been developed by Dublin City Council and Cork City Council to help their tenants to inter-transfer / swap homes.

    You will be able to search for someone to swap within the Dublin or Cork areas and can even move from one area to the other if you want to.

    If you are a Social Housing tenant who is looking to swap / inter-transfer to another Social Housing tenancy- whether you need more/less space, moved jobs or you need to move closer to family, HomeSwapper will give you the platform to do so.

    Simply register on the site, see all your matches instantly and message other swappers in real time chat.

    All inter-transfer/swaps will still be subject to our current transfer policy rules.
