Yesterday, the Central Statistics Office released a load of interesting facts and figures about living in Ireland. As part of the Regional SDGs report, it was revealed that people in Dublin binge drink more than those any other county and another interesting segment reveals the average price of rent in every part of the country.
In what will come as no surprise to anyone whatsoever, Dublin has the highest average weekly rent price at €279. This contrasts sharply with Leitrim where renters pay and average of just €99 per week.
On a county council level, Dublin actually had the four highest average weekly rents – Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown (€335), Dublin City (€276), Fingal (€261) and South Dublin (€259).
In total, only eight counties had average weekly rents above €200 – the four counties in Dublin, the cities of Cork (€207) and Galway (€206) as well as Kildare (€208) and Wicklow (€207).
The full table of average weekly rents across the country can be viewed below.
