Apartment in Athlone being advertised as “Dublin 8” on Daft.ie

Words: Eva O’Beirne

700 euro per month for a shared apartment, and it’s not even in Dublin.

Spotted on Daft.ie this morning, the listing has its location set to “Athlone, Dublin 8”. We weren’t aware Athlone was in the Liberties but sure what do we know.

The apartment description goes on to say: “It is NOT in Dublin but easily commutable from Dublin. Walking distance (200m) from Athlone train station. Train takes 1.5 hrs from Athlone to Dublin Heuston.”

The map location pinpoints the apartment as being on O’Connell Street, which definitely isn’t confusing for prospective renters. The apartment is also only available for two months.

Just your average day looking for decent accommodation in the capital.
