Hi Everyone!
I have a few Questions...

Looks like I´ll be moving from Germany to Dublin in a few weeks. Got the job I wanted and here I go! Of course I am really excited - my problem is: I have never been to Dublin and could use some help from native Dubliners, or Germans living and working in Dublin...

I will be working in Blackrock. Is that a good place to live too?

I will be living alone, theras I will not be needing much room. Where can I find flats in Dublin on the internet other than www.daft.ie? Which places are nice to live?

Where can I book flights cheap?

I have heard of a site called - www.submitprice.net - Flights are REALLY cheap there. Has anyone ever booked a flight on this sight? Is it for real? Or will I wake up one morning, seeing a credit card bill over 1000000,- and not a single flight? Maybe you know of other sights to book cheap flights?

I will be needing a (cheap?) B & B in or near Blackrock for a few days in May...any tips, hints or suggestions?

I´ll be happy about any answers! Thanks!!!

blackrock is a pretty posh part of dublin so it would be expensive to rent a flat around there, especially on your own. the northside of dublin is cheaper to live in but you might want to live a bit closer to work. i don't have any info on b&b's in blackrock, but in the city centre, gardiner street is full of them (this is very close to connolly station which will get you to blackrock by train)

if your willing to flat share, when you get here go to the main gate of trinity college and just inside the doors are notice boards for people looking for flat mates.theres plenty of other colleges around dublin that you can check out.at this time of year alot of student will be heading home for the summer so there should be quite a few flats available, but if your looking for something nice it may be quite pricey.
