If you're hoping to mingle with the locals, put this neighbourhood on your radar. Also known as the Village Quarter, its lively streets - major ones include Camden, Wexford and Harcourt - are lined with great authentic pubs where you can grab a pint of the black stuff. There's also plenty of places to sober up afterwards, from quirky cafes to bustling bistros.
Merrion Square is not only Dublin's museum hub, but also one of its most attractive areas thanks to its grand Georgian buildings. Take a stroll around the park to spot the lounging Oscar Wilde statue before heading to nearby Baggot Road for a snifter of fine Irish whiskey.
