Dublin: 8 °C Sunday 22 April, 2018

14 photos that conclusively prove that Dublin is an absolute rip

No arguments.

A SURVEY THIS week put Ireland as the second most expensive country in the EU for goods and services.

Yeah, sounds about right.

But we don’t need fancy surveys or statistical breakdowns to tell us this – we just have to look around. And nowhere is worse than Dublin for having lost the run of itself:

1. It’s a place where you can pick up a 1916 commemorative candle for a snip

2. A city where discounts aren’t a good thing

3. Where you pay through the nose for carpet like this

4. Travelling fans stumble into Temple Bar unaware of what they’re getting into

^ah, the poor Welsh fans.

5. A metrpolois where cereal can set you back more than your worst cereal-based nightmares


6. If cereal isn’t enough for you, there’s a full Irish that you can throw cash at

7. Even cinemas look upon Dublin as that capital cash cow to be milked

Still a cheap night out tbf.

8. You can take out a mortgage* for a bottle of water if you like


*only if you give up coffee and avocado toast

9. What a chicken breast this promises to be

10. Ah here

You may take our lives, but you’ll never take our… MiWadi!

11. It’s the city that has it all

12. Value, value, value!

13. “You would want to cop on to yourself”

^Dublin, please, heed the advice

14. Even the items that are mismarked are absolute rips

And the fact that it takes you a second to realise that’s not the real price says it all.
