A look inside new student accommodation in Dublin


“It’s better than the Celtic Tiger,” said one construction worker on a building site in Dublin’s south inner city on a sunny day last week.
“There are 50 cranes in the sky above Dublin.”

His words were drowned out by the sounds of building going on around him, as cranes and trucks put together one of Dublin’s newest developments.

Purpose-built student accommodation on Mill Street – at the southern end of The Liberties in the south inner city – is due to be completed by September, in time for the 2017/18 academic year.

When it’s completed, the New Mill will be made up of 400 bedrooms, designed specifically for students in the city. It is a joint venture between Global Student Accommodation (GSA) and their partner Harrison Street Real Estate Capital.

The rooms will be sleek, modern and energy-efficient, and will be located about a 15 minute walk to Trinity College Dublin or a five minute walk to DIT Kevin Street and close to major bus routes or Dart stations.

A single en suite room with a shared kitchen will cost a minimum of €249 a week, while a deluxe studio room will cost up to up to €349 a week (bills inclusive)
