Letting a room in my apt & moving abroad for 4-5 months

Hi folks,

I would appreciate some clarification on this one. I currently have an apartment that I will be renting out in the new year. I am looking at the purchase of another. I intend to live in the second apartment and rent a room in it. This rented room will qualify for the tax free rent-a-room as this second apartment will be my principal primary dwelling.

From June 2018 I estimate I will be abroad for circa 4-5 months, returning to Ireland to live in the same apartment. Can I continue to rent the room in that apartment on a tax-free basis for the duration I am gone? If not, does this mean I\'d have to go through the whole PRTB rigmarole etc for the person sharing the apartment for the duration I am gone.

Appreciate any assistance on this.

Thanks in advance
