That crossed my mind too, but I wasn't sure.

Great, another shot for one "lucky" person to experience life on the landing.

Form an orderly queue people!

I saw it a while and it's one of those houses I'd like to buy if I won the Lotto but moving Cavan might be a stretch!

If you won the euromillions, maybe you could get the house uprooted and moved to your preferred location.

I wonder what it was about the last year of restrictions that made the previous occupier want to move?

Imagine being stuck in there for another Lockdown.

Munich is often cited as the most expensive city in Germany.

This is what a one room apartment looks like there. This one is €760. €40 a month cheaper than the stairs in Phibsboro.
It's the first one that popped up on the list. I know the area, it's perfectly safe, a decent place to live. Great public transport too. Distance wise the same as Phibsboro from the city centre.

33m2 in total. Big room, a balcony and you can't hear the next door neighbour farting on the jacks in the morning.

I hope there never was an occupier and never will be.

Down the stairs, was the consensus the last time this was up.

I don't see any button on daft to report an ad. Poor form.

The option to report is down at the bottom on desktop version, I've just reported it myself.

Surely there are standards for a minimum permitted size of a habitable space? Or is that asking too much?

I'm applying for a job in Dusseldorf at the moment. The pay is better and they sent me this link for properties. 2 rooms minimum. at least 60m and less than 700 euro a month.
The catch is that a lot of apartments there don't have kitchens fitted. The previous occupant takes them when they move.

But there's still a load available with kitchens.

take this one. One bed, fully furnished. 550 a month or 690 if you include heating.

Well, canal boats are getting popular in places like London and Amsterdam, then of course you have caravans in various places, and then there's Japan.

Yeah they are. I am addicted to "cruising the cut" and "Foxesafloat" on youtube. Ireland doesnt have the same infrastructure for barges and narrowboats as the other countries. Narrowboats dont do well on open water like lakes and they dont have a network in Ireland like they do in the other European cities. Saying that I would love to live in one of them especially come lockdown.

Still far cheaper than Dublin, after a few months of rent-cost savings, to buy your own kitchen and furniture (assuming approximately equivalent salary of course).

As a renter, I always felt it was a pity we didnt/ don't have a tradition of bringing our own furniture to rental properties. I suppose it's a result of tenancy insecurity?

I remember when IKEA first came to Ireland, trying to persuade our landlord that we would buy a new couch, bookcase, tables etc but would he please take away the old stuff. He could keep the furniture when we moved out. He was having none of it.

It's bad enough renting in Dublin, you'd like to at least sit in your own IKEA crýïng-chåir.
