Welcome to the first in a series about renting in Dublin. What we aim to do is inform all the students panicking out there over finding somewhere to live.
We're going to be talking to people who've struggled to find accommodation, get tips from industry professionals and give you some key information about navigating the world of student housing in Dublin. So first up, we're going to be talking about location.
Depending on where you decide to live, it can make a huge difference in the price of your rent. Here's a list of the most popular student accommodation areas that average €450 to €600 per month.

House and room-sharing are the way to go to cut down on costs. If you're moving to Dublin by yourself, moving in with a few other people is your best option. Daft.ie have a great section for student accommodation, but I also recommend joining student accommodation Facebook groups. You can easily find them by searching online as they list postings you might not find on accommodation websites.
Keep an eye out for next week where we get to talk to someone from a house letting website to get insider tips on how to best find student accommodation.
