2. noun - kip 

A place that is particularly untidy, filthy. Perhaps originating from the conflation of the two words 'complete' and 'tip' (the latter a wordalso  denoting a place that is particularly dirty; i.e. 'a rubbish tip').

Examples:
"Hey, how's it going my - good God mate, this place is a right kip!"

"I'd inivite you back but my place is a total kip right now." - Often heard on the streets of Dublin at 3am on a Saturday night.

 

A word of common use in Ireland with regard to both meanings. (Now, I'm off to have a bit of a kip in my no good kip of a bedroom!)
