55% of renters in the Docklands work in the technology sector with locally-based firms including Google, Facebook and Twitter.

The average salary of a tenant in the Docklands is €127,618 per year.

Rents in the booming business hub are 20% higher than the Dublin average.

According to today's Herald they are expected to go up again by 4% this year.

 

The report found the average rent in the Docklands now stands at an average of €2,479 a month.
