A FEW DAYS ago, it was revealed that Dublin ranks among the most expensive cities to live in Europe.

Of course this won’t come as a surprise to anyone that lives here…

1. Dublin: the city where people are charged nearly €3 for a bottle of water

Sure doesn’t it fall from the sky, etc.

2. And where protein bars are a frankly extortionate price


3. A city where restaurants have the gall to charge €8 for a bowl of porridge

Your mother would be appalled.

4. And fancy hotels think €35 is reasonable for an Irish breakfast

€40 if you count the room service charge.

5. Dublin: where €775,000 will get you a three-bed semi-detached house

While you can get a private cottage overlooking an enormous lake for less in Co. Cork

6. Dublin: where you can expect to pay €800 for the privilege of sharing a house with strangers

7. After you’ve paid nearly a fiver for a tiny chicken fillet


8. And €10.60 for a glass of white wine

10. And you can expect to pay four quid for what is essentially stock

12. Or a €12 box of cereal

13. And can we talk about the cocktails?

Lads, take it down a notch.

14. The most notions-y thing of all, though? ATMs refusing to give out smaller denominations

Jesus wept.
