How it works



1. Overview

Secure and safe boxes for key pickup near your property.

KeyBuddy takes the hassle out of the meet and greet aspect of Airbnb hosting by providing access to secure key drop off boxes in prominent bars and restaurants.

KeyBuddy has partnered with an extensive number of bars and restaurants in a number of Airbnb hotspots around Dublin. We maintain a close relationship with our location providers with a view to mutual business benefit. This guarantees that guests are greeted with respect and courtesy when using our service.

The highly secure boxes are placed at safe and monitored venues. Using our online booking-portal hosts can find and book a box that best suits their property location and schedule. All payments are by credit/debit card and handled via secure gateway.


2. Book

Decide how long you require one of our secure key drop off boxes. Book online.

Once your box is reserved you will receive a confirmation email containing the Box number, location and unique PIN number. We recommend using the the box primarily for key pick-up by the guest.

You now have the information required to inform any incoming guests regarding key collection. We recommend providing clear instructions on location, opening hours, box number and PIN.


3. Key Drop-off

Place the keys in the PIN secured box

At any time after 12:00pm on the booking start-date you can access the box and leave keys for your guests. Prior to this time the box will be inaccessible to prevent duplicate key drops and confusion to other users.

Upon closing the box ensure that the box is locked by rolling the number selectors to random selections. Please ensure that the box is empty before 12:00pm on the last day of your booking. We cannot guarantee that abandoned keys will be kept for safekeeping.
