We could give you some big long spiel about the struggle of renting in Dublin but it would be nothing that you haven’t heard before.

It’s a disaster.

Find your ideal room – it’ll cost you 3/4 of your wage. Find something more in your budget, you’ll be sharing it with about 76 other people and it’ll be tinier than tiny. 

A bit like this next room we’re about to show you. 

Posted on Facebook in Dublin Classified Advertisements, this room in Inchicore is going for €360 and is fit for….a prison inmate according to this Reddit User

“You will share your room with a Brazilian gay male. We are looking for someone very organised, calm, non-smoker, hygienic and friendly.

“The house has 9 people. It is 10 minutes of Centra, bus and Luas stations. And it is 15 minutes of Aldi.

We’re not quite sure what the difference between a normal bathroom and a “social” bathroom is and to be honest, we’ll be okay never finding out.
