And it's not cheap either...
There's renewed outrage at the housing crisis after an ad appeared online offering a double bed shared with a stranger.
The listing - which has since been removed - advertised a double room in a family home in Adamstown, Lucan for €650 a month.
It says the room is available to a woman, and that the double bed would be shared with a student from Trinity College.
The ad also states the house is not owner-occupied.
It's reignited the conversation on social media about the state of Ireland's rental market, with some querying the legality of the arrangement and describing it as "absolute greed".
Another example of the horrendous greed we have here and students being taken advantage of. This is €650/m to share a double bed with a complete stranger. So these people are looking to rent out the spare room of their rented accommodation for €1300/m.https://t.co/QsVYBEHJGN pic.twitter.com/z0FUxifETV

Ciarán Mulqueen - the author of How to Buy a Home in Ireland - also tracks house prices and rental ads on the Crazy House Prices social media account.
He says it's a reminder of how renters are being taken advantage of in Ireland;
"It's really concerning...The family, they're currently renting it, it's not their own property, it's not owner-occupied. So, I assume it's probably against their lease to sublet a room and especially to sublet a bed to two different people."
Sharing bed is new low, could understand that it was single or bunk beds.

Ciarán adds that the family in question is likely under financial pressure, but says that doesn't justify an arrangement like this;
"You could probably assume the family has financial issues or they're struggling a bit like everyone is, and I would empathise with that...but you simply cannot ask somebody to pay you €650 a month to sleep in a bed with a stranger. It's horrific."
He says it raises some very legitimate questions;
"One - the legality of such an ad. Two - just the safety and privacy concerns, as well as the extortion of someone for €650 a month to share a bed with a stranger."
