Three ridiculously pricey homes to rent in Dublin right now

As you may have seen from our property article yesterday, affordable rentals are nearly impossible to come by in the capital. With rents up by 87% in just a decade, you’d wonder if the housing crisis will ever go away. So much doom and gloom can bring a person down; do you, like us, fancy a bit of escapism? If so, we’ve found some of the most glamorous properties the city has to offer. After all, there’s nothing wrong with window shopping.

Neptune Apartments, Honeypark, Dun Laoghaire – €1,998 per month

If luxury apartment living is your idea of heaven, you’ll swoon at this two-bedroom apartment in Dun Laoghaire. As part of the Neptune Apartments complex, the home grants access to a 24-hour onsite gym, a private landscaped courtyard, free wifi in communal areas, and a designated carpark space. What’s more, the property overlooks a five-acre park and onsite shopping facilities. Inside, the bedrooms are large and bright. They are wired for cable and satellite TV, while ivory shadow wardrobes offer ample storage. The kitchen is fully fitted, while the living room grants access to a large balcony. The icing on the cake? This apartment is environmentally friendly, with an A3 BER certificate.

Upper Leeson Street, Ballsbridge – €6,500 per month

If the apartment above is too far away from Dublin’s city centre for your liking, imagine living in this (insanely pricey) house in Ballsbridge. This fully furnished period property is located in one of the most sought-after areas of Dublin, and is just a leisurely stroll away from St. Stephen’s Green, Ranelagh, Donnybrook and Ballsbridge. The tall sash windows bathe the house in natural light, while the original cornices and high ceilings make the place feel elegant. The kitchen opens out onto a private courtyard which includes a permanent heating system and awning; perfect for outdoor entertaining. With four double bedrooms, four bathrooms and two reception rooms, perhaps you could invite others to split the €6,500 rent with you? Just a thought.

Cove Lodge, Marine Parade, Sandycove – €10,000 per month

We don’t know who can afford to pay €10,000 per month on rent, but whoever they are must be willing to sign a two-year lease if they want to live at Cove Lodge. This lavish property extends 3,350 sq.ft over two levels and offers beautiful views over the Irish Sea. It features four double bedrooms and six bathrooms, so there’s room for all of your favourite guests to stay over. Other key features include three reception rooms, a children’s playroom, and off-street parking for six cars. If the excessive rent means you can’t afford petrol, the nearest DART station is just a stroll away.
