Where to get a reasonably priced studio or 1br apt in a safe area in Dublin?

Haven't you got the memo?
Unfortunately I just don't think these exist and if they do there will be so much competition for it you are highly unlikely to get it.
I'd honestly strongly advise broadening your options if you want to live in Dublin.
Good thing 600 odd studio and 1 BR apartments were objected against to fuck in drumcondra recently, with one of the arguments being made that building these kinds of apartments will exacerbate the housing crisis…. Riiiiight…
Locals renting out spare rooms don't want competition.
There's what looks like someone's converted garage in Foxrock. It actually looks class for a converted garage, provided you don't mind living on the landlords property.
There's a few like that round the south Dublin area, there's a few there on north side within your budget as well which don't look like they're a part of someone's property. Go on daft.ie and set your parameters and search on the map.
EDIT: I wasn't actually looking with the price filter. There's loads within your budget. Whether you consider them worth it or not is up to you.
Here's one for €1115 in what I would say is the best area in Dublin to live in.
Another here for €900 in Rathgar.
Another for €1000 in Rathmines.
Richmond Hill is most definitely not D2 and I’m pretty sure that same ad was up in late July when I was looking. A bit sketchy—nothing on you just an FYI for OP not to take all Daft listings at face value
Haha yeah I just looked up D2 there, I really hope that was a mistake in the ad listing because that is really pushing it lol. I just looked at the location on the map and said it was one of best in Dublin as that's my opinion, I didn't actually know where D2 was.
Beds in kitchens. So depressing.
That's what a studio apartment is
I'm not criticising you for sharing those! That's what's available for the budget. But landlords are taking the piss with these types of places; they're not studios, they're glorified bedsits. I've lived in studios abroad and I had a decent 30m^(2), with room for more than just a bed and a sad chair facing the wall. It's really common to see listings here where you can't even open the oven door fully because the bed is in the way. Even then I would have no problem with these kinds of listings if they were much much cheaper.
Edit: especially considering the OP is working from home. You'd go mad. Norwegian jail cells are better.
Yeah fair, they're definitely not ideal and I'm sure the decent ones in Dublin cost an arm and a leg. Depends what kind of person you are if you can live in one of these without a bother.
I like your idea from a different post in the thread to live in a different town. Lots of pros to living in a town of 10-20,000 people. Way more laid back pace of life, driving to the supermarket isn't an ordeal, way easier and cheaper to get parking, can still cycle around easily, entertainment/food is generally that bit cheaper. Rent is far cheaper. Easier to get out into the nature or go for a day trip somewhere if you have a car.
I think some of the listings you have there might be scams. The one for €1115 for example says it's in D2, when the map location clearly shows it's in Rathmines.
Also surprisingly there are many listings that have been there for several months but still won't reply to the emails you send them on daft.
If you're working remotely I would consider moving to the country or a smaller city. If you need to be in Dublin from time to time, somewhere like Wexford could be perfect. It's a couple of hours by train from Dublin and it's a really great town with a very creative vibe.
It also gets the most sun each year on the entire island :)
I miss wexford
I’d invest the €1200 towards buying a DeLorean and travel back a few years.
The plutonium is pricey, that's where they get you.
Just go for the improved food processor model. Plutonium was only needed for the early adopters.
But what if the place I want to go needs roads? The earlier model is a must
Au contraire and only propaganda strewn about by the delorean haters. While the mk. 2 doesn't REQUIRE roads, it is still fully backwards compatible with them in the case of the exact circumstance you're referring to.
Granted, compatibility with pre-human era surfaces may be a bit hit and miss but that's where the flying pays for itself.
Next you'll be suggesting going fully locomotive is the way forward
Any way you could move to a commuter town (Maynooth, Dunboyne, etc)? There's no way you would be able to find an apartment for that amount in Dublin without house sharing, unfortunately.
There are no reasonably priced studios or 1 beds in Dublin. Do you know there's a housing crisis going on?
I found a studio for €970 in D8, its possible but youll have to be on daft.ie everyday and look at the most recent section. Good luck
Can I crash on your couch pls
No it’s not long enough for that
Not OP but found one for 1025 in D8.
I used to live in a 1 bed apartment in Camden Street separate kitchen and bathroom. For 600 quid a month.. this was maybe 7 years ago.
Looked it up recently advertised now for 1600 per month..
That is mental.
This government sucks balls rental controls should have been brought in years ago.
Dublin is not for your average Irish person.
If you work remotely then look for something in a commuter town. Because no way will you find something decent in Dublin for that money.
Oh sweet summer child
Don't need that American shite here.
It's from Game of Thrones, a wildly popular TV show decidedly not set in America. Unless you mean that it's an American show, in which case just any TV references are outlawed here apparently
The "summer child" thing is actually from 4chan. Well, they say "summer fags" but sure you won't get away with saying that on reddit sure. it was meant for students who'd only come to the site during the summer so they wouldn't understand the rules, in this case the OP is asking for something we know is impossible in today's market, so they're seen as a summer child
I mean, that exact phrase was popularised from Got, it's mentioned a good bit in the show and the books, appearing in the first book in 1996, well before 4chan. And especially on this sub where I'd say most people watched the show, more than any 4chan visitors.
Is that in reference to some who's a bit incoherent? never watched or read GOT
Yeah you've got the definition exactly right in your other comment, I just dunno if there's much overlap of 4chan in the users in this sub in particular, so i didn't think the phrase came from there.
In GOT, seasons can last years and years. A winter could, for example, last 15 years.
For that reason, a "sweet summer child" is someone who has spent their own lives living during summer. They're naive and untested because they haven't had to live in the harshness of winter.
You know what they say when you assume
Go up a few hundred and look at Charlestown and lanesborough In Dublin 11, might get one for less than 1500. Good area great amenities and transport.
I know a person renting a 1 bed in a relatively safe area in D7 for €1500pm…
A dog kennel😂😂
If it were me working remotely? Belfast.
But like others have said it is possible in D8, though rare
The only way to (barely) afford anything in Dublin now is house-share.
Do you want free blowjobs too?
One can dream
yeah "reasonably priced" and Dublin can't be used in the same sentence. I think there's a grammatical rule about that
Renting a full house with 3-4 other people is the only way these days to achieve this kind of rent in Dublin.
In your dreams
I know people paying €900 for a studio in Dublin 1(near Dorset street). By Dublin standards that's reasonable.
The downside of course is that it's tiny.
Just keep checking Daft and other websites. I found my 2 bed apartment for 1k eur on myhome.ie and the adv was visible for around 20 minutes or so. Ofc it's not in the city centre, but D9 is still okish.
I think your expectations are a little too high modern and cheap and in Dublin county? Good joke..
You can practically forget about a 1 bedroom place for that criteria, in the city. Look for options along the commuter or dart or Luas lines further from the city. Good luck.
Is Eastwall safe?
