This double bedroom on Cork Street seems grand from the outset but when you see how much the landlord makes, it’s an absolute joke.

In order to avail of this double bedroom, you must be willing to pay €750 a month while also sharing the house with 10 others.
It’s not student accommodation but it’s still a mixture of both students and working professionals.
The house itself looks class but surely it can’t be right that someone is able to rent this out to the same amount of people who take to a soccer pitch every Saturday and Sunday.
