How much does it cost to live in Dublin?

I don’t think that Dublin it is expensive
for living. Because if I make numbers, only in rent, food and bills I spent an average
of 300 Euros. I spend per month about 1.000 Euro. Before come here, I was thinking back in Brazil: “Can people live with just 500 Euros?” Which was an amount of money that for me was ok. I arrived here and I realized that, if you save, you can live with 400 Euros. The accommodation itself I know sometimes
it’s hard because you come here and you have 1 or 2 weeks to find an accommodation. But
if you look, if you call, if you insist you would find a room with good cost benefit. I’m sharing an apartment here in Dublin city
Centre with 5 more people, which makes our rent drop enough.
187 euros per month I live in a single room in Dublin 8. I
pay about 300 euro per month. For my flat is 650 Euros. Obviously, it is
include electricity, TV and Wifi. I pay 11 euros per month for Internet and
every 2 months I pay an average of 40 euros for the electricity bill. I think it´s possible to live with less money
but I want to keep my privacy, I want to be alone in my room, so it´s my choice. Cooking at home by myself, I spend about 4
Euros for meal. When I go out to eat something in a restaurant I have to pay more than 10
euro per meal. The best way to reduce the living cost in Ireland is so having a meal
at home as often as possible. I do share the purchase with my flatmates.
I spend an average 6 to 10 euros per week. So we can save a lot on food. Here you can buy things from basic need, for example milk, 75 cents a liter of milk. We buy a 800 grams sliced bread for 69 cents. A pound of pasta 94 cents. We buy rice, beans, sausage to cook with the
beans, buy seasoning, a 3 Euros tray of eggs which has 30 eggs. We buy ground beef that
is an average of 3 euros. A can of sardines. Can of corn, peas, and pickles. These little
things that make a difference in our daily menu, but which are not really expensive for us. I don´t live that close to City Centre in
order to keep my monthly budget of 400 Euros. I opted to buy a bike. Saves me 100 euros,
because if you want now to buy a student card you have to pay 100 euros. I pay 10 euros per month for my mobile plan
and I have free Internet for myself and free calls with my friends who are using the same
mobile company. The fitness club here is about 60 Euros per
month We can visit museums, you can go to the park,
you have many options. You can take a tour, go out one day and ride a bike. So, is a city
that you have many leisure options at no cost or not high costs, you know? I think it is not just hangouts, but also
meeting other people, talking with them, but it always depends. Maybe a pint of beer is
around 5 Euros, but if I drink in my house the pint of beer is around 2 Euros. I think this questions about how to control
all your costs helps a lot. If I spent more in one week I try to spend less the next week. No, I don´t have difficulties. I eat well,
I live well, I even go out quite a lot. Of course, with 400 euros you can´t go to
pubs every weekend, spend a lot of money, go out to know restaurants very often, doing various pay tours. That won’t fit with a 400 euros budget. But if your goal is to learn
English, experience a new culture, have new experiences and meet new people is totally

    My tips to living on a budget in Dublin:
    Be prepared to share accommodation
    Inner city Dublin is expensive to rent in, so try living a bit further out. However, just work out how much you are going to have to spend on public transport and weigh it up.
    You will probably spend about 50 to 70 euro/mth on electricity(sharing).
    About 35/mth on internet if you want to get your own connection, but again, living in shared accommodation and sharing this cost will greatly reduce this.
    Save money by not getting paid TV (way overpriced) and look at netflix or just watch the Public Irish tv.
    Groceries about 60 euro/week.
    Eating out can be expensive in Dublin, so save money by restricting how much you eat out.
    If you can bring your own mobile phone – that would be much cheaper than buying one on a plan in Ireland. You can pay about 15 euro/mth on a prepay mobile plan that includes data.
    Don't buy a car, just hire one when we need one to go on a trip. You won't need one if you live in Dublin as you can easily get around on public transport and Taxi's are pretty cheap too.

    Bom dia. Observo que o aluguel médio em Dublin gira em torno de 800 a 1.500 euros por mês(por uma casa). Viver aí ganhando um salário mínimo de 9.15 euros/hora deve ser muito difícil.

  25. yarilandia says:

    Hit CC for closed captions !!! The way this filthy America is — I may go back –i left when I was 4 — but who knows with my asshole parents maybe were really from Eastern Europe !!!

  28. Troy Rossi says:

    Everybody. Just hit the CC closed caption button for subtitles near the bottom right. It translates the Portuguese and gives English subtitles. Looks like Dublin is pretty cheap. Compared to Los Angeles, California

  31. Martin Lorandin says:

    I can't help but wonder how the English speakers in this video get understood. Now don't get me wrong, it's understandable, and I get that they came to Ireland to practice their English. Honestly without the subtitles I wouldn't have been able to decipher what they're talking about. Awesome video though !
