What is the rental market like in Greystones at the moment?

I am moving to Wicklow from Scotland with work early Spring 2009. I have identified Greystones as a good area for me to rent.

On a recent visit an Estate Agent told me there were plenty of rental properties, but there is also high turnover and if I wanted to rent in Greystones, I would have to move quickly if I saw a property I liked. Is this true? I have noticed that rents in some areas are falling. Is this true for Greystones? What room for negotiation do I have?

moved to the sell buy or rent board
