Hi there,

I have just moved to Dublin and I am looking for a place to stay.For the past week I've been crashing between hostel and a guesthouse.I'd love to stay in a real house..does anyone know any good places where to look from? (Have tried Daft,Gumtree and lent.ie already..no luck...:() I'm only going to stay in Dublin for about 5 and half weeks. I know it's hard to find a cheap place..my job will be paying for my rent so that's no problem..they gave me a limit though 500-600€ per month.

Any ideas?

Looking forward to ppl's replies!!

Many thanks!

I think there is an apartment group in Christchurch who rent their places out for shortterm letting. The title of the company is something along the lines of Christchurch apartments! Don't know how expensive it is though! Draft are usually good having short term places up but maybe hostels in Dublin may have a notice board or the evening herald might have some shortterm stuff in it? Don't know if that helps at all! Good luck and enjoy Dublin!

Hello Niumei:)

Appartments in Dublin are incredibly expensive.
So expensive, that I dont see how people with normal jobs can afford them.
I have a small one bedroom one, in the city center. The comercial rate for people to rent this appartment is around 1000 euros per month long term. It is more expensive short term.

I think it is very unlikely that u will be able to rent an appartment for 600 euros per month. The only chance u would have at all, to get one for this price, is if somebody privately offered it to u. But this would be very good luck.

Many people living and working in Dublin rent a house and share it with others. U could ask people at your job, if they know of anybody renting a house like this, who would let u rent a room, for 5 weeks.

Although, in my opinion, it is not worth the trouble, for just 5 weeks. The other tennants may insist that u pay a security deposit, which u will not necessarily get back, when u leave.

Unfortunately I have to agree with Mel. one 1-2 bedroom apartments in dublin usually start at around €1200. studio & bedsits very rarely go below the €950 mark and if they did I would be very suspicious of why.

A friend of mine has been looking for a studio apartment for months now & she isnt that fussy but they are just incredibly over priced.
