There is no metro in Dublin and the main public transport is made up of slow clunky buses. There two tram lines and the red line luas is horrible slow with and almost erratic acceleration in the city centre.
The road network with the m50 motorway ring is poorly designed and chaotic. You will find yourself on a short section of two lane road which will suddenly turn into a single lane without warning.
There seems to be be no concept for the area inside the m50.

Traffic is increasing massively due to population increase combined with improving economy. Public transport is not as efficient or fast compared to other European cities but they get the job done. Buses are the slowest and would heavily caution against living on a bus route that doesn't have a significant amount of bus lanes on the way to and from the city centre as rush hour traffic will make your commute hell. I'd try to live beside either the DART or the LUAS as they are generally quickest way to commute. I'd try to live on the same side of the city as you work. Crossing the River Liffey at rush hour is hell and can add 20 to 25 minutes to get out of the mess on all transport modes with exception of the DART.
