Hospitality company Airbnb has announced it is creating 200 jobs in an expansion of its Dublin workforce.
Airbnb, which already employs 300 people in its community based business, has started hiring its new employees.
The new jobs are in customer experience, human resources, finance, 'trust and safety' and IT.
The company also will lease 'The Warehouse', a planned 40,000 square foot contemporary office space at Hanover Quay, Dublin.
The company says over the next 14 months it will undergo a "sympathetic restoration and modernisation".
Airbnb currently has over 1,000,000 listings in 190 countries.
Europe accounts for almost six out of every ten listings on Airbnb, while Ireland represents about 4,500 listings alone.
The company describes itself as a "trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique accommodation from around the world".
It was founded in 2008 and its headquarters is based in San Francisco.
Separately, entertainment and communications company Youth Nation is to take on 25 new staff to add to its existing staff of 40.
