Affordable Renting in West Dublin
The rental market is showing signs of stabilising after what has been quite a challenging time throughout Ireland.
Supply and demand issues have made rents soar over the last number of years but now the rise in rents has slowed down. Daft has released a recent report which shows that the annual increase in the last year was 5.2%. This is down from 12% in the middle of 2008.
Dublin is still an expensive place to rent but the inflation rate in the capital has fallen to 4%. The Government have a plan for apartment living and access to the city centre and both are possible in Saggart. If you factor city centre prices against the suburbs, then this South Dublin suburb is one of the more affordable towns in which to rent a property.
Commuting from Saggart
This fast-growing town is now only a short hop from the city centre. It is a historical town which was founded when a Monk formed a settlement here and until rather recently it has continued as a small sleepy village.
With redevelopment, new infrastructure and the arrival of the Luas this has changed. It still has a lovely village feel but now has a lot of extra amenities and some great travel options to other towns and beyond.
It also has a direct link into the heart of the city centre with Luas bringing commuters right into the financial district. Moreover, Luas leaves its passengers just a short hop from Dublin Port. With a good bus route servicing the local areas, commuting from Saggart has never been easier.
Young Vibrant Vibe
There is a great vibe in the community in Saggart. The average age of the population has decreased significantly in the last number of years with young families and professionals taking advantage of all it has to offer.
