Very Very Long. You'll have to get a connection through London. I lived in Melbourne for 7 years and it is rare to see a flight direct from Dublin. I've never been to Dublin, but friends tell me that its almost 20 hours to get to London. So you'd be looking at a long and fairly expensive flight, even in economy.

Etihad now fly direct from Dublin (via Abu Dhabi) to Melbourne since Oct 2009. It takes 23 hours going there and 25 coming back. Dublin - Abu Dhabi is approx 6.5 hours. Abu Dhabi - Melbourne is approx 14.5 hours. Stopover times vary. Economy return flights generally cost €800 - €1200 depending on season.

All other airlines transit through UK (London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester) or Europe (Paris,Frankfurt,Amsterdam). I highly recommend Singapore Airlines: Dublin - UK - Singapore - Melbourne. I prefer to transit through Manchester as Manchester is much easier to negotiate than London. UK - Singapore is approx 12 hrs. Singapore - Melbourne is approx 7 hrs.
