You’d be living with female young professional in mid 20s, looking for someone in similar situation. I enjoy hanging out and having the chats over tea/wine with housemates but also value my own space.
Looking for a housemate who is a bit of craic, tidy, reliable for bills and easy-going.
This is a pro-Repeal the 8th apartment.

Daft.ie has published its report on rental market trends for the third quarter of 2016.
The average rent nationwide rose by almost 4% in the third quarter, equalling the largest three-month increase seen in the second quarter of the year.
Combined with other recent increases, it means that
the annual rate of rental inflation in Ireland is now 11.7%, the highest recorded by the Daft.ie Report since its series start in 2002.

From the latest Daft.ie report
Daft.ie released a new report this morning –
The Daft.ie Rental Report, an analysis of recent trends in the Irish rental market 2016 Q2.
just 3,600 homes to rent nationwide on August 1st — 1,000 fewer than on the same date a year previously.
The numbers for Dublin are lower still, with just 1,100 properties available to rent at the start of May.
the average rent nationwide has risen by over one third since bottoming out in 2011 and has surpassed its 2008 peak. Monthly rents are now almost 10% higher than they were a year ago. This isn’t a happy picture for anyone renting in Ireland.

David Burns, of the UCD Students’ Union, writes:
UCD Students’ Union, TCD Students’ Union and Daft.ie are working together to create more student-specific bed spaces in Dublin ahead of the 2016/17 academic year.
The campaign idea is simple:
encourage Dublin homeowners [or tenants who have permission to sublet] to let out spare rooms as digs to students by advertising the available tax incentives. Under Irish law, homeowners don’t have to pay tax on rental income earned from digs unless it exceeds a yearly cap of €12,000.
TCD, UCD and Daft.ie are promoting this information with geo-targeted adverts online which will be featured on DoneDeal.ie, Adverts.ie as well as a joint social media campaign.
The project is valued at €8,000 and features blog post testimonials of positive experiences.
