While no one in Dublin would expect any visitor to necessarily speak the lingo (ie. Dublin accent) - it might be as well however to brush up on a few phrases that may be emitted in your vicinity! (Bear in mind that the 'u' sound as represented in the following terms is pronounced exactly like the sound one makes when thumped severely in the stomach!)

Janeymac! = That was quite a surprise!
