What can you tell me about moving to Dublin?

The company I work for has offered me an opportunity to transfer to Dublin to head up a project there I have successfully implemented in the US, that will create jobs in Dublin. Before I accept I have a couple of concerns and want to do some research. I have lived in Europe before. I've lived around the UK, France, and Luxembourg. I have visited Dublin for a couple days here and there, so I am somewhat familiar with the city. Where can I get cost of living information? Who are the most reputable letting agents to work with? If my office is near North Wall Quay, what is the best area of the city to live for convenience, and public transport? Are there areas of the city from which I should stay away? Utilites, cable, cell phones. I'm just looking to get an idea of normal daily life. I'm a pretty friendly and out-going person, I'm from Boston and have many friends who have immagrated from Ireland to Boston. But, they have been Americanised. I'd like to know from Irish in Ireland how some like me will be accepted. Any other pointers you can offer will be appreciated. Oh P.S. Are there any expressions that I should be aware of? I used an expression in London that is common in the US and almost gave my co-worker a heart attck. I am not dreading the move, I am very optimistic. I am just the kind of person who likes to plan and remove as much uncertainty as I possibly can.
