    Ya’d want to have some high flying job to afford the €280 per week rent by yourself as you wouldn’t get a second person in there unless the crying chair folds out into a bed too.

    You have to move the table if you want to go to the toilet since its up against the door.

    Is all that even legal?

      +500; We need as much accommodation as possible – but at a reasonable price.

      Perhaps legislation to limit the maximum rent for tiny bed-sits? This would be based on living space only (and excluding toilet/bath)
      e.g if under 30 sq m – max of €10 per sq m per month.
      e.g if under 40 sq m – max of €12 per sq m per month.
      e.g if under 50 sq m – max of €15 per sq m per month.

      “It was more multicultural than south Dublin, where she had moved from. Guys would put stereos out on the street for impromptu block parties.”

      What a load of rose tinted waffle. Where is Rathmines located?

    ….Aaaand it’s gone. Daft must hate Broadsheet exposing all its rackrenting dirty little slumlords and the hovels they supply.

    Folks, its the same all over Dublin 6. These are the ones available but I’ve seen similar come and go over the past few months, all with the same styled interiors. Now you can say all the above are a happy coincidence that they look the same, but anyone with half a clue will know its the same landlord who is buying in bulk for renovation and hence getting the discounts. They can then bypass the RPZ rules and jack up the prices. Whats more is they can write off the expenses. It’s comical.

      Renovating 2 flats on a floor into 3/4 “studio” apartments with easy access to the cooker from your bed… I wonder which FG cumman they’re a member of?

      That fupping Rathgar studio for €1352 is criminal. I mean, €1300 for a one-bed in D6 is average right now, even if that is absolute madness in itself. But for a studio?! To have my clothes smell of whatever I’m cooking?!

        I was paying £600 (€720) 20-odd years ago for a studio near there – and it certainly wasn’t newly refurbished.

        plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

          Even if you take that figure Cian, its increased by 90% in 20 years. Wages have most definitely not come up 90% to meet that type of change, refurbishment or not.

    I’m currently house hunting in Leeds where the most expensive rental I can find in Headingley (close enough to Rathmines in demographic terms) is a four bed detached for £1000pm. I can get a two bed for < £500
