Advice on Accommodation & Living Costs in Ireland.
Students taking undergraduate degrees in Ireland have options when it comes to choosing somewhere to live, with the three main types of accommodation being:
• University accommodation –
such as halls of residence
• Private accommodation –
such as house and flat rentals
• Homestays –
living with an Irish family
The majority of international students in Ireland will choose to live in university accommodation, particularly in their first year of study. This is the easiest way to get to know fellow students, settle into university life and avoid the stress of having to find your own accommodation.
Living in Ireland can be as cheap or as expensive as you want to make it, but in general you will pay more if you live in Dublin than anywhere else in the country. Estimates suggest the average student needs between €8,000 - €12,100 to live on each year – excluding tuition fees.
