Ireland´s Historic Rental Yield Data

Research Methodology: To conduct this research, we searched for studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom, and 4-bedroom apartments in the largest cities of Ireland. We utilized the Daft website for both buying and renting prices to determine the average gross rental yields (Monthly Rent x 12 / Purchase Price).

For instance, if the monthly rent is €500 and the purchase price is €100,000, the calculation would be: €500 (Monthly Rent) x 12 / €100,000 (Purchase Price) = 6% (Gross Rental Yield).
