Prospective tenants will only be allowed to live in their accommodation for five nights a week – from 2 p.m. on Sunday to 10 a.m. on Friday.

People blasted the owners’ move as “greedy” and “disgusting” after spotting the same property on Airbnb for potential weekend vacationers to rent.

Ciaran Mulqueen, running crazy house prices on Twitter, took to the social network to blast the owners’ move.

He said: “You’re only allowed to stay there less than 5 days a week – it’s only available from 2pm Sunday to 10am Friday – what the fuck?

“The €4,200 does not include bills. It’s scandalous.

“His plan is Airbnb on top of charging €4,200/month for four and a half days a week. Greed in Ireland would really get you down.”

The property has since been removed from Rent.ie and the Airbnb website.

Many people flooded the comments in shock after reading the ad.

One said: “Every time something like this is posted I tell myself it can’t get any worse. It always does.”

Another added: “This is absolutely the most disgusting thing I have ever seen a landlord do.”

A third said: “The price is outrageous.”

Separately, there was also outrage over huge queues outside a rental building in Dublin earlier this month.


More than 100 potential tenants lined up for hours to view a three-bed house.

One of those in line took to Twitter last night to document the events.

According to Conor Finn, more people were seen joining the queue even as the sun was setting.

He wrote: “This is what a visit to a house in Dublin.

“More than 100 people line up for a rental property.”

Later he tweeted: ‘I’ve been here almost 30 minutes hardly any movement and over 50 more have joined the queue.

And the young man then explained that he had finally left after an hour, and that people were still joining the line at that time.

He said: “An hour later I left the queue after no real movement or chance to see the house tonight. People were still joining the end of the queue when I left. “
