Seeing this a lot on Daft now. Yes, it’s a bed in a kitchen..You can cook the bacon before you get up. No, they are not bedside lockers. This. Is. Your. Life.

found this ad (above) for an apartment in Holystown [Dublin 15]
I did a reverse image search on one of the clearly-not-Holystown photos and it’s of Mrytle Beach Hotels in the US [South Carolina, on the Atlantic coast of America]. What the Hell’s going on?
‘A single BEDROOM available in one bedroom apartment MONDAY TILL FRIDAY ONLY ‘
I think that should say SITTING ROOM €570 to sleep in a communal area…but only Mon-Fri….
My neighbour's kid sorted her student accommodation in Galway. 700pm per month for own room in house with landlady & 12 other students. Cash only, and on Friday mornings they have to take *everything* out of the rooms & vacate as she does AirBnB at the weekends. pic.twitter.com/mFE4Q9N3jt

This makes me so angry and should be absolutely illegal as security for tenure – 7 days a week – is an absolute minimal ingredient for a proper rental market. That woman should hang her head in shame. #greed https://t.co/bK9dnY2hMg

Reported on RTE this morning. Average monthly rents in Dublin have risen to €2000 a month. After 8 years of market obsessed FG, you now need €24,000 a year just for rent. Think about it, before you put food on the table, pay a bill etc, YOU NEED €24,000 A YEAR FOR RENT. https://t.co/hT4JA6NQrz

Twenty four big ones.
Yesterday: I Fought The Law Of Supply And Demand
The latest quarterly Rental Report by Daft.ie is out.
In Dublin, rent growth in the last quarter was 4.5% compared to a year earlier, bringing average rents to €2,023 a month – with available rentals continuing to slow.
Daft economist Ronan Lyons says:
“Availability on the rental market remains at levels that were unprecedented prior to 2015…For example, in the Dublin market, there were just 1,541 properties available to rent on August 1st. While that’s up from 1,121 two years ago, it’s well below the average of 4,700 for the preceding decade….”
The government promised years back that it would bring in a deposit-retention scheme for landlords and tenants. What’s happened since? https://t.co/7LNFEqJ0EQ
