    Hi! I'm moving from England to Dublin in September to study for a Masters at Trinity College in Public History and Cultural Heritage. I'm looking for accommodation at the moment. Does anyone know what areas of Dublin students predominantly rent in, that are not too expensive or far from the university? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi, there's no one place in Dublin students rent in. There might be a few more than usual in the Rathmines area, but that'll be undergraduates, since the university accommodation for first years, Trinity Halls, is there. Rent will be cheaper on the North side (north of the river) since it is less affluent, but you may have to be aware of crime in certain places. Drumcondra is an area in the northside that's quite safe and cheap. Rents are shocking in the city centre, many students pay 500-700 euro a month for rooms in flats within walking distance of Trinity.

    You should get in touch the the accommodation advisory service, they have listings etc. Also if you can get on a service we call noticeboard, which tcd students get emailed every week or so, that has loads of ads from students with rooms to let. It would be best if you could get together with some other students and rent a house, I think the accommodation service can arrange groups together.

    You might have more luck with responses to these types on questions on Boards.ie an Irish discussion forum. Its for pretty much everything but has a university/college section similar to the student room.

    Finding accommodation in Dublin is a bit of a nightmare, to be honest. There's no one place to go to guarantee reasonable rents/safety/location. Good luck and I hope you have a good year.
