Student apartments for rent in Dublin

Shared apartments are the most common type of accommodation among students. These apartments have several rooms, allowing multiple people to live together and split the cost of rent and utilities.

Also, studio apartments are another housing option in Dublin. They offer privacy and independence but tend to be a bit more expensive, starting at around €900 per month. Studios are usually designed for one person and include a bedroom, living area, kitchen, and bathroom in one compact space.

Student rooms for rent in Dublin

Rooms in the Irish capital can be either single or shared. Single rooms are for one person and may have a single or double bed, along with essentials like a desk, closet and chair. Shared rooms usually have two single beds and basic furniture for two people (two desks, two closets, two chairs, etc.).

Shared rooms are generally more affordable, but you’ll need to consider if you’re comfortable with less privacy, as it will be hard to have any time alone. Remember, common areas like the kitchen and bathrooms are shared with residents from the other rooms.

The city centre is a favourite among young people, though it comes with higher rental prices than in surrounding areas.

This street is one of the city’s main shopping areas.

Apartments in Dublin 6

District 6 offers reasonably priced rentals and a pleasant living environment. Popular areas like Ranelagh and Rathmines are convenient if you are studying at the University College Dublin, as they are halfway between the campus and the city centre.

Rooms for rent in Phibsborough and Stoneybatter

Located on Dublin 7, these two neighbourhoods have a modern vibe with plenty of restaurants, stores, bars, and pubs popular among young people in the city. Rent here is slightly more affordable than in central areas, and they are close to some university campuses, like the Grangegorman Campus of TU Dublin.
