These Infographics Show Staggering Rental Prices Along Existing And Future Luas And Dart Lines

Alana Laverty last month released these infographic maps outlining average rental prices along both Luas and DART lines, and even shows prices along the future Luas lines once the Cross City is complete. 

The map highlights both the most and least expensive rental areas along Dublin’s rail lines. 

The highest average rental price on the map is at the Spencer Dock stop on the Luas red line where renters pay a staggering average of €1,920 per month while people living along the Luas green line pay an average €1,553 per month.

It would wanna be a nice gaff if it’s in the four figures. 

And for DART users living along the coast it’s much more of the same, in dollah bill terms, with Sandymount rental prices averaging €1,908 and Dalkey costing a tear-jerking €1,856. 

Check out the full infographic below:

“Convenience and affordability are two key concerns for nearly everyone who lives and works in Dublin. What is interesting is that while the Luas green line has the most expensive average rents overall, both the Luas red line and the DART have stations/stops that command the highest premiums.”

Martin Clancy from

The figures shown are average rents for 2 bed apartment controlling for time, size and type for each of the stations on the DART & Luas lines. 

The sample of over 16,000 properties for rent comes from the period between January and November 2016.
