Now look, we don't want to get you all down over the festive season but the stark price difference between the cheapest and most expensive counties for renting a gaff is shocking. 

The latest report by the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) shows that the average rent across Ireland for rental accommodation is now €1,056 per month, up from €965 this time last year. 

The difference between the cheapest and most expensive county is almost triple the price 

In the RTB report the average rent for every county in Ireland in Q3 of 2017 was revealed, and the five most expensive and least expensive counties in Ireland are at seriously different ends of the money spectrum.

Most expensive:

Dublin: €1,518

Kildare: €1,114

Galway: €1,083

Cork: €1,026 

Least expensive:

Leitrim: €487

Longford: €534

Donegal: €545

Roscommon: €549

Cavan: €571

This is pure madness.
