    Its still a rip, but as an all inclusive student centered space its not too bad. Halls accommodation out in Dartry is only slightly cheaper.

      All the student accommodation popping up are like this. Its certainly not the average student paying this.

        No its not, and it wouldn’t be recommended beyond first year really, very difficult to find house share solutions when you don’t know anyone and have no prior references.

    Looks okay to me, and probably includes cleaning and maintenance? Many a farmer down the country can afford this for their kids.

      Yeah and you’re paying for the farmer

      I know of a family, 3 kids, relatively poor with a house in the sticks, way out…
      They could not get any grants for their kids on their 2 wages (low wages, one part time one full, but combined still very poor)

      The farmer next door, worth millions, could get grants for his. Joke.

      I remember friends of mine went on a J1
      They found accommodation, a group of lads and lasses
      The landlord said they could have accomodation at dramatically reduced rate if they’d let him put cameras in all the rooms for people to look at online…

    €239 a week for a student. Isn’t it great how the Free Market sorts everything out so fairly.

    Most colleges here in the U.S. charge around $10 grand per year for student accomodation including meals.

        I don’t disagree, this notion that you must attend college right after secondary school is a crazy one. Let kids get a little life experience before committing to these programs and the enormous expense. My friend is paying $70 grand a year for four years to send his son to Boston University, its madness.

          I shudder at the memories…

          You’re probably sound yerself, but yer Ma….
