Co-operative Housing Ireland is Ireland’s national federation for the cooperative housing sector. Since its foundation in 1973 co-operative housing has:
• Supported the provision of approximately 5,000 homes across a mix of tenures,
• Taken responsibility for the ongoing management of 2,000 homes available at affordable rents,
• Promoted the development of locally affiliated co-operative societies across Ireland,
• Provided wider community development opportunities such as Childcare Services.
We are a co-operative of co-operatives, currently working with ten affiliated societies in Dublin, Kildare, Leinster, Munster, and the west of Ireland. Our local structure means that housing services are always locally owned and locally managed.
Information about joining a co-operative and access to co-operative housing is available here.
