Irland IS very very expensive. The accomodation situation in Dublin is strained - they can let whatever they want. Food is approx. 20 % more expensive than at home. Nightlife as well - entrance fees up to 7 Euros are quite normal.

The bus ticket is really a financial surprise - too expensive for students. Saving tip: buy a bike if you live close to the university. Its also great fun to cycle around with friends - and its also a cheap way to come to the city center and back ;-) =>taxis are expensive and its hard work to catch one during the weekend.

I spend more simply because life in dublin is much more expensive than where i live in france. As far as housing is concerned dublin is the first most expensive city after london i think, and because it is an island, most of the products are quite expensive. Moreover in france i had a car, whereas in dublin i take the bus or taxis, and those are expensive as well.

Prices in the supermarket were even lower than in Spain in some products. I used a lot my mobile but I didnt spend more than 20 e per months,Meteor was the company I used there cause it has really good rates. About housing, I spent 275 e per month for a shared room....terrible! Nightlife was a bit more expensive than in Spain, but there are no problems if u know where to go each day.

In Austria I live at home therefore I do not have to spend loads of money for living. Generally the pricelevel is higher in Ireland than in Austria.

Forget about smoking and drinking. Aldi is the cheapest supermarket.
