Whoever had the idea for Airbnb is nothing short of a genius.

You see somewhere you like on the app, cough up the money and then it's yours for as long as you and the owner agree on. It's perfect for travelling because, unlike in a hotel, you feel at home during your stay.

As we've reported in the past, there are some truly amazing properties to rent on there: flats, villas, mansions, and now... pubs.

Conroy's Old Bar in County Tipperary, Ireland is available to rent on Airbnb and it raises the question of why you'd opt to stay anywhere else.

Visiting Ireland should be on everybody's bucket list - worth it for the taste of the Guinness alone - and if there's an opportunity to stay in a 'traditionally characterful, authenticly Irish' watering hole whilst you're there, then I say take it.

"Conroy's Old Bar is especially suited to those who have a love of the great outdoors, who would like to experience the true beauty and tranquility of rural Ireland, whilst staying in a converted authentic Irish village bar," the property description states. Adding that it is: "[a] village bar, discreetly converted into self catering accommodation."

For the price of around €100 (£90) per night, you get two bedrooms, a lounge with an open log fire and everything else you'd expect of a traditional pub.

Apparently it sleeps up to four people, and being the first of its kind, it is receiving a lot of reservations. So if you fancy it, my advice is to get on it quick.
