Look, renting is TOUGH in this country, we all know that.
And soz to say, but it's even worse when you compare properties all around Ireland to see where you could be living for in and around €1,000 a month - the average price of a one bed apartment (well... studio apartment) in Dublin.
Honestly, it's pretty harrowing to think we're paying the same amount of money for a grimey box in the city centre as someone across the country is paying for a majestic countryside abode with a sun room and five bedrooms.
But hey, the price of the hustle and bustle is worth it, right? Maybe not..
Especially when you see the gorge places you could be living in every county in Ireland.
