We Asked You For Your Housemate From Hell Stories – Now Vote For The Best One!


Last week, we asked you to tell us your most bizarre, outlandish, batshit crazy stories about shared accommodation – and man, oh man, did you guys respond in earnest.

But after a lot of work – and a lot of moans, groans, cringes and hoots in the Lovin Dublin offices – we’ve managed to whittle it down to 12 from the huge volume we received.

So now, it’s time to vote – and decide which lucky bastard gets a month’s rent paid courtesy of our good selves.

How to vote

Anything else?
