The average salary of tenants living in Dublin’s docklands rose to €117,095 last year, more than double what it was three years ago as the rental market in the city’s central business district continued to heat up.

Data from Owen Reilly, a docklands-based real estate agency, shows that three-bedroom apartments in the area recorded the most significant percentage rise last year, asking 12 per cent more than in 2017. The average rental price stood at €4,166.

    Seriously, build a cage, one Facebook employee, one Salesforce employee, two man (or woman) enter, one man (or woman) leave. Virgin Media 3, 9pm, week nights.

    Feel like Im missing out somehow , I work in IT and my salary is nowhere near that 15 yrs experience

      Yeah- that must be average income per apartment no? Unless the average is being dragged up by tech CEOs? It seems very high for an average salary.

      +1, I feel quite sub-par reading that. Unless everyone I know is actually rolling in it and don’t want to make me feel bad

      Sounds more like what I would expect average total income of an apartment around there to be if there’s an average of two people per.

    “Average” can be quite misleading: eg. there might be one executive on a million a year and 20 people on 50k. Would like to see a better breakdown. 4k per month is no joke though, that’s NYC/SF level rent. Crazy.

    Suckers! Time is money. That’s a total waste of money if you are renting at 4K per apartment.

    Nowhere in Ireland is worth that rent. Insanity

      Are you mad, there’s a lovely shed in a back yard (in Drimnagh) thats more than worth that price.

    That’s total BS. I recall reading the results of a national salary survey here not so long ago and being struck by how low the average was. Location notwithstanding, there’s no way that figure is accurate.
