If we were already at peak housing crisis, September has squeezed the market even tighter.

With an influx of students to the city all looking for accommodation, finding a decent place to live is basically impossible.

Photos from a "semi-affordable" rental viewing in Dublin yesterday just prove this fact.

Shared by Peter Bodkin, editor of, the photos tell a bloody mad story.

Dozens of people lined the streets hoping to get a viewing of the house, with Peter noting that the agent didn't have much of a job to do when it came to a sales pitch.

As Peter noted 'Does it have a roof? Sold'.

Peter noted that there were two pregnant women among the viewers, writing: 'Can’t imagine looking for a place in the middle of this shitshow with a kid on the way'.
