Hi Eric,
If you’re staying in the city centre, there should be older pillar post boxes nearby. A good number of our boxes still bear royal ciphers as the photos here attest.
As far as I know, there isn’t a comprehensive list (see my post #11 above), and the NIAH surveys mentioned above don’t yet include Dublin city or county. But look at the link in post #4 above for some leads, perhaps.
Are you looking for any particular type of box? There are no hexagons in Dublin, but there are a few other unusual types such as the double box – for ‘Dublin’ and ‘All Other Places’ – on Dame Street. If you’re sticking to the Georgian parts of town, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding what you’re after.

Paul-
I haven’t forgotten about you, just been run off my feet lately. I’ll be back soon.
