Commuting in Dublin

Hello there fellow BF'ers!

I just moved to Dublin from Dallas Texas and hope to live car free. I haven't seen any posts from folks in the Dublin area (I've looked!) so I thought I would throw this out.

My husband and I are working with an estate agent who thinks it is unreasonable to cycle to work year round--that is, to rely on the bike as your primary means of transportation with public transportation being the backup for a daily commute of about 20 miles (about 30 km I think) round trip. For the natives--is this unreasonable? I don't see how--I mean, I did it in Dallas! Surely I can do this in Dublin. She seems to think I won't want to get up in the winter and cycle in the dark (but again, I did this in Dallas).

What say you?
