IT’S TOUGH FINDING a room to rent in Dublin.

But would you take one for free, in exchange only for a little light housework?

That’s the offer being made by a 28-year-old man in Milltown.

Actually, it’s not an entire room, it’s a single bed on the floor.

But there’s “plenty of space”.

The ad on Gumtree reads:

Hi I’m offering free accommodation in return for companionship and light house work. You will have single bed on the floor [...] It is a great apartment in Milltown near to luas stop.

Why would you make such an offer, you ask?

I am nice guy and just alone in this foreign land and some company would be nice.

And what sort of a person are you looking for?

I’m 28 so someone around that age should apply with more about yourself and picture. Bed is available straight away.

We’re a little confused. Get in touch, mystery man!
