Default Need a Place to Live in Ireland

I am an American who is planning on taking a long term work assignment in Dublin, Ireland. Does anyone have any advice on where I should live? I will not be taking a car with me, so I am concerned about getting to the Silicon Docks area for work.

The Docks area is in the east of the city, It is serviced by "The Luas" light rail system or you could rent an apartment in the docks area.

Anywhere either side of the river in the city centre you can walk/cycle (free bikes available) to work.

I think there are tech companies located at Grand Canal Dock, which is on the South Side of the River Liffey. It's actually South-East, but we Dubliners usually talk in terms of Northside or Southside. Anything near a DART stop should be good. The DART is Dublin's light rail line that runs from Malahide and Howth on the Northside to Greystones on the Southside. See the map in this link http://www.visitdublin.com/pdf/DARTRouteMap.pdf

Better addresses on the Southside tend to be more expensive than the Northside. If I were you, I would try to find something on the Southside. If you can't find something suitable near a DART stop and need to travel by bus, it is better to be on a bus route that doesn't entail crossing the Liffey.

There are lots of apartments in the docks area, but if you have children it would be preferable to look for a house somewhere between Sandymount and Greystones on the Southside, and from Clontarf outwards on the Northside.

The main property website in Ireland is DAFT Search Lettings If you choose the Search by Route option, you can search for a place near the DART line.

Good luck with your job.
