How to find the perfect apartment for a flat with a rooming house in Dublin
In the UK, the number of apartment flats in Dublin increased by nearly 2,000 in the 12 months to March 2018, according to data from Nationwide’s Dublin Land Registry.
And that doesn’t include new apartment flats that have yet to be built, which have the potential to add another 3,000 or so new apartments to Dublin’s apartment population.
However, with prices still falling in Dublin, the biggest increase was in the area surrounding Dublin Airport, where the number rose by 1,700 units.
While that may sound like a lot, the area around Dublin Airport was the least dense of the city’s boroughs, with a population density of just 1,000.
The biggest increase in apartment rents is also concentrated in the more affluent parts of the capital, where there are more apartments per capita than anywhere else in Ireland.
In Dublin’s capital, the average price per apartment is €7,500, while the average cost of renting an apartment in Dublin is €3,500.
This means that, on average, apartments in Dublin pay more per unit than any other city in Ireland, and it’s still cheaper than London.
But with prices already falling in many parts of Ireland, that might not be enough to convince investors to move to the capital.
What to do if you want to live in Dublin?
If you’re looking for a good-quality flat to rent in Dublin for around €2,000 a month, then you might consider the new flat in Rathdown.
Located in the centre of the central city, it’s just 20 minutes from downtown Dublin.
If your budget is tight, then the apartments in Rathdowns Flat can also be a good option if you’re a student looking for something close to the city.
If you want the best of both worlds, then consider renting out a flat in Dublin’s west, where a flat for around £2,500 a month can be found in the town of Kildare.
