EU-Foreigner CANNOT find flat, with job offer(s). Advice?

Hi there,

I am considering relocating to Dublin which apparently is quite difficult for a foreigner (EU-national).

Unfortunately, I already had to decline two job offers because I was not able to find a flat! Although I am willing to pay up to 1200 p/m (utility bills not included, studio flat or one bedroom apartment, everywhere in Dublin/suburbs), it remains impossible for me to find suitable accommodation (not even raunchy flats).

I would be able to provide accommodation/payment references from my former university in the UK but I still had no luck so far.

Hence, my question now is, are there any real estate agents in Dublin that would be able to find a flat for me for a certain fee? If so, how much would that fee generally be? Is that possible in Ireland?

Before I continue with the job hunt (yet again), I would first at least have some sort of certainty that I would be able to find a flat next time I get offered a job, so that I will not have to decline anymore job offers.

I am currently not located in Ireland. So I am trying to find a flat BEFORE moving to Ireland, but WITH a job offer. Which is why I am hoping for a real estate agent / letting agent, if it is not too costly, who could help me with the flat hunt.

I am grateful for any advice I can get here, as I would really like to move to Dublin asap.

Thank you very much in advance!
