I am suspect when we talk about Ireland as I lived there for 3 years got some special feelings for this country, but it couldn't be different.
Short Trip (if you are going to stay for 3-4 days):
Packing - Doesn't matter the season, bring your raincoat or you will have to buy it there. Umbrellas don't work in this country because of the wind. Don't worry it's gonna be windy, anytime, any day. Boots are welcome, it will probably rain a little during your walking.
If you're in Dublin, go to Dublin Castle, on the south side of Liffey River, you can take the buses 77a, 56a or 49, check the route at dublinbus.ie
Nowadays it is a major Irish government complex, but once it was where King John lived, first Lord of Ireland, 18th Century.
Liffey river will be on your way. It's at the end of O'Connell Street, one of the famous streets of Dublin. Stop during the sunset and take a picture.
O´Connel St. has the General Post Office of Ireland, it's one of the main buildings of Ireland and it has a Museum inside with a copy of Proclamation of Irish Republic. Free entrance.
Saint Patrick Cathedral is the largest church in Ireland, founded in 1191 it is not so far from Christ Church Cathedral, both located in D8. Entrance is 5.50 euros per person if you book online www.stpatrickscathedral.ie
Trinity College is one of the famous colleges in Europe and it has a library which is an inspiration! You can stop there on the way to Grafton Street, most famous top brands shops in Dublin.

You have planty of places to stay in Dublin. I recommend to stay in city centre as most of the places you can go by walk.
If you are traveling in a low budget, Generator Hostel is a nice choice.
If you rather be in a Club than a Pub, there is a street in town called Hardcourt with loads of clubs, most of them you have to pay entrance. If you don't mind to pay a taxi, go to The Wright Venue, it's next to Dublin Airport and it is the best club in Dublin. Taxi might cust 25euros from city centre.
