It’s not looking good lads.
Listed on Daft.ie on Wednesday, the “studio” apartment costs 1,142 per month.
“This is a lovely small studio apartment, which has a single bed in it. It is in a beautiful Georgian building not far from Dublin City Centre, based at Phibsborough and near to Cabra,” the description of the apartment states.
“The apartment has a new kitchen, a bathroom with an electric shower, new double glazing, new mattress and base, has been rewired, also has new wooden floors, with a cooker, microwave and fridge freezer and has been redecorated etc. It also has a huge new flat-screen TV in the apartment. There is also a lovely garden to the rear of the property.”
“New kitchen” and “huge new flat-screen TV” are our favourite bits.
We genuinely can’t tell if the ceiling is really low, or if you have to be 6″4 to reach the microwave.
Last month, it was revealed that only 851 homes are available to rent on Daft.ie as of this month – the lowest number since 2006.
According to Daft.ie, the average monthly rent nationally stood at 1,567 euro in the first quarter of this year, up 11.7 per cent since 2021 – more than 50 per cent higher than the Celtic Tiger peak of 1,030 euro per month, seen in the first quarter of 2008.
