Renters in Dublin are being asked to pay up to 550 euro for half a bed, as the housing crises worsens. Housing charity Threshold says desperate tenants are being taken advantage of in the private rental sector.
A new report by The Times has uncovered numerous property listings around the city advertising 'shared beds', with some even stating that no snores need apply.
Housing charity Threshold say bed sharing which was previously confined to students and recent immigrants to Ireland is becoming more common among full time employees.
In some cases it's tenants subletting because they can't afford to rent on their own, in others it's the landlords seeking to maximise profits.
Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy said part of next year's housing budget would go towards increasing the amount of local authority inspections of rented accommodation.
