Metro Hotel Tenants Affected By Fire Offered Student Accommodation


Share this article


Tenants affected by the Metro Hotel fire in Ballymun are being advised to find temporary accommodation at a nearby student residence.

The short term arrangement is available as of today until May 12th.

In a letter sent out yesterday, tenants who wish to take up the offer were told they must pay in full for the duration of their stay, while also paying a €150 deposit.

The apartments include shared kitchen and living areas, and €10 worth of electricity per week.

One Dublin City Councillor hit out at the move, feeling it shows a complete lack of support:

Imagine the Gov of that Country offering no help at all, not even visting you to see where you ok, now being told that you need to find €205 a week to rent a student apartment.
