€1,800 for a two-bed?! Here’s where you’ll pay the highest Dublin rents


It's most definitely no secret that rents in Dublin tend to be sky-high compared to the rest of the country.

In fact, there are only three locations among all of Dublin's LUAS and DART lines that you can expect to pay under €1,000 per month in total for a two-bed apartment.

Yes, if you're on a budget, your best bet is waaaay out at the far end of the Red LUAS line, at Cheerverstown, Fettercairn or Citywest. Not exactly the most accessible spots.

Daft's new Dublin Rent Rail Map is the first to categorise rent prices based on the closest rail stop, and it definitely throws up a few shockers.

For example, the most expensive spot on the map is not a coastal two-bed on the DART line or around the shopping haven that is Stephen's Green – it is in fact at the IFSC end of the Red LUAS line.

For a two-bed apartment near Spencer Dock you can expect to shell out a whopping €1,802 on average – that's €901 per room each month.

Other pricey spots include Charlemont and Milltown on the LUAS Green Line, plus Tara Street in the city centre.

And if you're a beach lover who's looking to rent along the DART line, you'll pay a premium in Sandymount and Dalkey (both over €1,700), but can expect to find cheaper pads in Bray and Portmarnock, where rents are closer to €1,200.
