As someone who has rented accommodation in Dublin for seven years, I have seen some interesting sights while house hunting in the capital.

From a house in Fairview where three men were asleep in one bed while the owner showed me the property, to an apartment on Dorset Street where there was mould in all the rooms and rat poison laid down outside the back door – the rental market in Dublin has a very ‘vibrant’ selection. 

In the midst of some awful accommodation viewings, I always managed to find some liveable places in the end (at a hefty price).
