I wouldnt go there again if you payed me.

I was walking down the street on a cold night down to the store - and a large man in a t-shirt was walking towards me. As we crossed paths he punched me in the face and then ripped my jacket off me.

I was attacked once in Dublin, they punched me. Not a safe city for european standarts. I lived in city centre, too many muggers and the so-called "knackers" everywhere. Walking alone in Temple Bar after 3am is very risky, you will see a lot of drunk people looking for trouble. Beware.

Lol... all you have to do is google Sexual Assault in Dublin. It's amazing the violence you see once you open the newspaper there. It's really appalling that the Garda pride themselves of not carrying any guns to fight crime in Ireland. They seriously have a problem with rapists, alcoholics and drug addicts. That country is going to hell.

Dublin is probably one of the safest cities ever. However, there are places in like Tallaght ect. and the south of dublin that are considered "rough".

I was in Dublin one month ago on a family trip, I felt very safe. Men do not insult women in the streets unlike the place where I live. People who want to visit Dublin, you really shouldn't be worried!

Almost every city in Numbeo has a high rate in crime increasy in the last 3 years. That's due to people's own imagination. I live in a violent city in Brazil and people are always saying it's worst now than the year before. But when you check the rates, crime rate has stayed more or less the same.

Me again. Crime in Dublin has actually gone down a bit over the last 3 years, so it's apparently in everyone's imagination:

Surprised Dublin is so high on the crime list. Crime is really not that bad in Dublin at all. I think there is a massive discrepancy between how much crime there is in Dublin and how much crime people THINK there is.
