In general, rentals are well out of sync with property values, which is one of the reasons some economists think there is a property price bubble here.
is that to rent a 3 bed house near the city centre? i kinda wanna move back to ballymun the mun the mun the house of fun!

I just saw 1,100 euro for a 2 bed apt in Ballymun...I know that prices are insane in Dublin right now...esp. in rentals. Most of them are furnished though so that's something. A lot of them seem to be rented through agencies for subsidized housing...I cannot believe the govt. is essentially supporting these ridiculous prices by subsidizing these rents.

I wish!!

I go back a lot and my family own a bunch of rentals and it boggles my mind how much they are being rented for. It's creating a vicious circle though as my younger cousines are being priced out of the market to buy any new properties.

If you are looking just to rent which I guess you are, I don't think it should be too much
We're renting and next year for a flat the same size (one bedroom i.e. pokey!) the rent has risen by £70-£135. We've also looked into buying but it is impossible right now. One bedroom flats around Belfast have been selling for over £200,000. Same situation with the houses/flats in the country. Even with two salaries the estate agents have mentioned having my Da on the mortgage too.

Don't get me started on house prices! Surely the housing boom has to break soon though? ...right?

^The government needs to build more houses, there is a massive lack of housing throughout the UK.

These days I think a commune may be the only way to go

In N.Ireland it's £215,000 for an average house price which is about $430, 000. They say house prices have gone up by 46% here in a year (over 50% for semi-detached hosues).

Two of my flatmates and I are looking for a house or a flat next year in Dublin within a 20 minute walk of Trinity... jeeesus. 400 euro a month each (1200 in total) is about the lowest we're finding. And we're talking student accomodation here, nothing fancy! Just bedrooms and a kitchen!
