This report is produced by the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and provides indicators (the Rent Index) generated to track price developments in the Irish private rental market. The analysis in this report presents rental indices on a quarterly basis covering the period between Q3 2007 and Q4 2021.

The purpose of the Rent Index is to measure developments in the prices faced by those taking up new tenancies in the private rental sector. This includes new tenancies in existing rental properties; new rental properties never let before; and new tenancies in properties that have not been let in the immediate two years prior to this tenancy. The Rent Index does not provide a measure of the rental prices faced by existing tenants.
