Dublin 1 vs Dublin 2 / 4
I'm moving to Dublin in January next year. I've been looking into apartments on Daft.ie and have found that for similar apartments, Dublin 1 seems to be cheaper than Dublin 2 / 4 by about Protected content per month.
I'll be working at North Wall Quay so Dublin 1 is nice and close as well as cheaper, however I've heard that South Dublin is better than the North side for safety, nightlife, nicer areas etc.
Can anyone please recommend whether I should go for Dublin 1 or Dublin 2 / 4 and their experience of the respective areas?
