Dublin has been named the worst city in the world for housing.

This year's Expat City Ranking has found 88% of those asked responded negatively to housing in the capital, double the global average of 44%.

A Brazilian ex-pat is also quoted in the piece as saying, 'The cost of living is a turnoff.

He also described, 'finding an apartment,'  as, 'a nightmare.'
