Property website Daft.ie is working with large companies based in Dublin to identify temporarily empty apartments that could be used by healthcare workers during the coronavirus crisis.
The firm says it recognises that frontline staff need clean convenient places to stay as they self-isolate outside of hospitals.
The free short-term housing could help ease doctors and nurses concerns of sharing a home with their families or housemates.
Companies involved in the new plan are now looking to see if employee's currently empty apartments can be used to temporarily house healthcare workers during the ongoing crisis.
Daft.ie says it hopes to have the details finalised and live on their website next week.
Eamonn Fallon, CEO of Daft.ie, explained: "Ireland's healthcare workers are doing an amazing job and we want to support them in anyway we can.
"Our team are working day and night sourcing rent-free apartments for our frontline doctors and nurses. We hope to be in a position to start filling them by early next week."
It comes amid reports that doctors and nurses could soon be asked not to live with other people in shared accommodation to stop the spread of the virus.
Health Minister Simon Harris yesterday told RTÉ that option would be considered only if it is supportive and helpful to healthcare workers.
