The current renting situation in Dublin is beyond unacceptable. With the average rent price in the city now at €2,000 – this tweet puts it all into harsh perspective.
The average rent in Dublin is now €2,000 monthly. This equates to a €450,000 mortgage on a house worth €500,000. To get this loan would require a salary of €112,500 a year, plus a €50,000 deposit, and you’d need to have no dependents. Why are Irish people accepting this? https://t.co/VfRGi8GauR

Just to make ourselves (and you) feel extra nauseous, we had a look at what you can get in New York right now for roughly the same price.
The comparison is ridiculous.
