PICS: €450 a month will allow you to share a bed in this small room in Dublin

Wow, shut up and take our money...

It seems appropriate on the day the Take Back The City protest take place in the capital that we feature another example of how depressing it is to be on the hunt for housing in Dublin.

Rocketing rents and landlords who, in some instances, seem to have abandoned their conscience in pursuit of cash, and very little action from the state have left it difficult to find affordable housing in Dublin, especially for someone earning an average wage.

When it's revealed that Dubliners spend 55% of their take home pay on rent, you realise the extent of the problem.

Which brings us to our latest example of outrageous rents in Dublin.

On Daft.ie, there's a room available to rent for one month in Ashington, Dublin between 25 September and 25 October for €450 for the month.

However, this fee will not get you the whole room to yourself. No, you'll be sharing with one other person for the duration of your stay.

That's fine though, plenty of people share a room at some stage and while €450 is expensive for a room share, if you're desperate you might consider it.

But the kicker, you don't even get your own bed, you'll be sharing your bed with one other man... for €450 for the month.

Wow...
