How do I find a place to live in Dublin?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Dublin is to use online resources such as rental websites and real estate agents. You can also search for rental properties in local newspapers and on bulletin boards. Additionally, you can ask friends and family who live in the area for recommendations. Once you have identified potential properties, you should visit them in person to get a better sense of the area and the property itself," explained one person living in Dublin, Ireland.

"We came to Ireland on a pre-move visit to get a 'feel' for the different areas in and around Dublin. In the months previous to our move we scoured the homes for rent list on www.daft.ie which is THE website for real estate on which virtually all real estate agents and prive landlords advertise their properties. We eventually found our home via an estate agent," said one expat in Dublin.
