Finding accommodation in Ireland is hard, especially in the Dublin area. Competition is very high, and most entries are only listed for a few hours due to the high demand. Use this scraper to find your perfect accommodation and send automated messages immediately to miss no opportunity.

The Daft.ie scraper supports the following features:

  • Be ahead of anyone else and do not miss any accommodation opportunity,
  • You can search for a specific location and scrape the results accordingly.
  • Apply any of the filters and details provided by the Daft.ie website.
  • Send automated messages to the agents by using a very simple template engine.
  • Every enquiry message is only sent once.

Go to daft.ie and choose your filters

There are four placeholders so far:

Placeholder Description
{{agentName}} Will be substituted by the agent name filled on daft.ie
{{name}} Will be substituted using the name INPUT field
{{phone}} Will be substituted using the phone INPUT field
{{date}} Will be substituted using the date INPUT field

Message

Dear {{agentName}}, We are very interested in this apartment. We would love to come and see this place on {{date}} please, if possible. 
Please get in touch with us if this does not suit you, and we can schedule a different time. You can reach us on {{phone}}. Many thanks, {{name}}

These placeholders are optional, therefore it is also possible to write a message completely without them.

The actor stores its results into a dedicated dataset daft-ie-scraper to avoid duplicate scrapings and enquiry messages. The data can be downloaded in machine-readable formats such as JSON, HTML, CSV or Excel.

Each item in the dataset will contain a separate entry that follows this format:

{
  "id": "3979517",
  "href": "/for-rent/apartment-58-59-thomas-street-co-limerick/3979517",
  "title": "58/59 Thomas Street, Co. Limerick",
  "category": "1 Bed 1 Bath Apartment",
  "overview": "Property Overview Double Bedroom: 1 Bathroom: 1 Available From: Immediately Furnished: Yes Lease: Minimum 1 Year",
  "entered": "18/07/2022",
  "views": 2784,
  "emailSent": true
}

You should be aware that your results might contain personal data. Personal data is protected by GDPR in the European Union and other laws and regulations around the world. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so. If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers. You can read the basics of ethical web scraping in the Apify blog post on the legality of web scraping.

We will be adding more functionality soon, so feel free to contact us for any suggestions or improvements.
