Towns outside Dublin

Hi, I will be in Ireland for St Pat's day and Dublin is booked. Any suggestions for a place outside of Dublin that would make it easy to get into the city without using a car.
Thanks,
Karen

On another forum I read a very positive post about Malahide. It's north of Dublin and on the sea, but still covered by the Dublin bus system.

Hi Karen,

I prefer South Dublin and would recommend
Dun Laoghaire, Killiney, Dalkey,Monkstown, Blackrook, Greystones or Eniskerry.

Malahide and especially Greystones are quite far out. Blackrock is easily accessible by dart and there was a B&B ny friend tends to dtay in there for business called Idrone house. As well Blackrock is a nice town with good restaurants and punbs if one night you so not want to venture into the city. Forget a car in Dublin it is not worth the hassle get rid of it for a few days while here. Oh and book now you are leaving it late already.

I would stay in Dun Laoghaire. It's a short train ride into the city.
