Advantages and disadvantages of sharing a flat in Dublin

Here are some advantages and disadvantages of living in a shared flat in the Irish capital:

Advantages of sharing a flat in Dublin

  • Dublin is an expensive city, and sharing a flat can help you save significantly. This allows you to use the extra money to explore the city and travel (thanks to Dublin’s good connections with low-cost airlines) and enjoy the city's cultural and leisure activities.
  • The weather in Dublin is often rainy and grey, with short winter days. Living with roommates can make the atmosphere at home more lively and keep your spirits up, especially if you're not used to such weather.
  • Locals are friendly and welcoming to international students. If one of your roommates is Irish, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about the local culture.

Disadvantages of sharing a flat in Dublin

  • As the school year approaches, competition for accommodation increases, and so do prices. Start your search as soon as you receive your place in the exchange programme.
  • Many shared flats in Dublin are located in neighbourhoods far from the city centre. Consider the cost and time of commuting from your accommodation.
  • Your room will be the only private space you have. Look for a room or flat with natural light to make the most of the sunny hours when you're at home.

  • Both trams and bicycles are popular means of transport for students. Try to find accommodation with good tram connections or within walking distance to your university and the city centre.
  • Look for roommates who speak a different language from yours, so that English becomes the common language. This will help you practise and improve your English skills during your stay in Dublin.
