      Table folds out to a bed, bin folds up to a lamp, lamp can be used as a toilet, toilet folds out to a sink and the sink can be used as an emergency table just in case you’re sleeping.

    I used to live in an attic flat in Cabra Park. It was an awful, awful sh!thole. These tiny gaffs are ridiculous but at least they look someway clean.

    Petitioning for Broadsheet.ie to publish the top 50 grim-holes of dispair as a coffee-table book a la ‘Things that look like Ireland’, ideal for any waiting room, reception area or even on the table of a bijou studio apartment above a bowling alley, and below another bowling alley..

    All in favour, say Aye!

      So you can smugly snigger at them?

      Some people are left with very little choice in where they live and are the mercy of greedy fat landlords who drive around in those Isuzu Troopers with a trailer of shite and try to fix everything on the cheap.

        I think the idea would be to shame the landlords, not make fun of the people with little option but to live in them.

          I’m a renter in Dublin – I assure Mr. T the last thing I would be doing is smugly sniggering at anyone forced to live in such grim set ups, .40%+ of my take-home income goes to pay for accommodation and utility bills.

    It’s amazing how people are so judgmental of low income housing and then tomorrow will complain about the rise in homelessness. Clearly standards are needed but the costs of providing higher standards is ultimately paid by the renter. There’s a old saying that rich people will travel a long way to look at poor people, you can see that attitude well illustrated in some of the posts here.

    1. well

      ” costs of providing higher standards is ultimately paid by the renter. ”

      There’s always at least one poster (can’t remember his name now) bemoaning the abolition of bedsits, like they were some magical panacea and homelessness/rent rises only started when they were done away with.

        Oh they had homelessness and rackrenting landlords long before the standards came in in 2013. Only thing is, they forgot to build the extra 5000 units in dublin that would replace them.

        1. Kieran NYC

          Yeah, true. Poor timing. Government had no money to build anything of that scale, and most property developers were severely burned.

    Crying chair has been upgraded to Suicide countdown chair.

    ….its so far beyond a joke now in Dublin, people don’t know hat to call it.
