ATM Machines Around Dublin Review

Use caution when you're withdrawing money from ATM machines. Crime, like any city is rampant in Dublin especailly when it comes to withdrawing money from cash machines. Make sure no one is peeping over your back or if you're in the middle of withdrawing cash don't fall for someone tapping you on the shoulder and whilst you look around another person is stealing your cash. Keep you hand over the machine when punching in your id number.

If this does happen call the police or the Irish tourist Assistance Service.

Mobile Phones Around Dublin Review

Dublin has become much more violent. Unfortunately it is no longer safe to walk around the streets with a mobile (cell) phone day or night. Be careful that it is not snatched from you. Never ever leave anything on the seats of your car. The windows will be smashed and anything you have will be taken. Be careful if you want to take a walk along the liffey boardwalk, apparently its full of junkies and drunks who's main objective is to verbally attack anyone that walks by. The police are trying to clean this area up but we don't have a huge police force so they are hard to spot.
