Today.

Paul O’Donoghue, of The Times Ireland edition, reports:

“There has been a significant increase in the number of renovated Dublin bedsits advertised for rent, many only slightly larger than prison cells, since the Covid-19 outbreak.

“Belgrave Property Management, a letting agent in Rathmines which manages many of the capital’s renovated bedsits, is currently advertising almost two dozen studios for rent. Before the Covid-19 outbreak, it rarely had more than six studios available to rent at any one time.

      The space is 11.5 sqm but if you’re being really pedantic a space and the clearway around it amounts to 28.8sqm

        You’re right comparing car spaces to people spaces is crazy.

        There is over 80m² of roadway in Ireland per person – which is bigger than the average living space per person…. but then again cars are bigger than people!

      yep. i was shocked to see they were still looking for well over a grand a month for these. I’ll enjoy watching that arrogance diminish over time as theyre forced to lower and lower em. i also feel sorry for anyone who does end up in one, because they’ll be turfed out once theres a demand for Air BNB’s and student accom again.

    Bedsit meant bedroom/sitting room. These are Bedkitches where the bed is in the bloomin kitchen. I wish bankruptcy on the landlords and the likes of Daft who shill for them.

      Traditionally a bedsit was just a bedroom/sitting room. There was a shared bathroom and no cooking facilities.
