Paddy’s ‘Studio’ is up for rent again €1,100pm. I can find no record of relevant planning. Photos still suggest non-compliance with minimum standards. I was able to track this address down from [an] earlier advert.

Ah here.

A #TipOff for a ‘one bedroom own door flat’ offered by Colin O’Neill in Templeroan, €1,170pm Mon-Fri. I’ve narrowed down the street. I suspect there’s no window in the bedroom. The kitchen has a microwave while retaining the garage doors.


The property is no longer available.

A #TipOff for this ‘WEEKDAY TENANCY ONLY self-contained studio’ at €800pm. 30 Hamilton Street. Planning was granted in 2004 for a ‘storage/utility room’. Photos show a toilet with a kitchen sink and a sitting room with microwave. €800pm!

Proposed ‘co-living’ redevelopment of the former CBS school in Eblana Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

In May it was reported that plans to develop a former Christian Brothers’ School on on Eblana Avenue in Dún Laoghaire into a five-story 208-bedroom ‘co-living’ development – with 42 bedrooms per floor – had been submitted to An Bord Pleanála by Bartra Capital.

The scheme offers residents rooms with “a pull-down double bed, a shower, lavatory, sink, kettle, mini-fridge and storage with communal kitchen and living areas for a minimum €1,300 a month”.

The proposals were given the go-ahead last month.

Earlier this month, Olivia Kelly, Dublin Editor at The Irish Times, reported that more student accommodation spaces were granted permission this year than any other type of housing under a ‘fast track’ planning system.

Ms Kelly reported that, in the first six months of 2019, An Bord Pleanala granted permission for 1,870 houses, 2,953 apartments, 414 build-to-rent units and 3,094 student bed–spaces.

The fast track system, introduced two years ago, allows applications for schemes to bypass the local authority decision phase.

Although it was scheduled to finish at the end of this year, the Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy – who last month admitted his regret over comparing a co-living space to a “very trendy, kind of boutique hotel type place” – is considering keeping the system in place for another two years.
