Just had a recent example of the insanity of rent in Dublin at the moment. I live in Dublin 2 in a lovely but smallish two bed apartment. I pay 1200 quid a month with my boyfriend which I know is a great deal, I struck gold with the soundest landlord ever! We have been here about a year and a half. However the apartment next to mine which is also 2 bed and marginally bigger is currently on daft for 1900 quid! That is a 700 euro difference in apartments literally next door. On CSO average price for a 2 bed in this area is 1400 so its still 500 more! Just thought I would share!
