It will be plenty of time as you go through US Immigration at Dublin, so you won't have to wait in line to get your passport checked.

I allways alow 2 hrs. You could be late getting off the ground in Dublin, you could be late landing in Newark.

I too usually book a 2 hour connection there, but I wouldn't be too worried about 1:38. While you will have to wait for your bags, there shouldn't be much problem. I usually have at least a half hour in the President's Club before heading to the next plane, and I don't have to wait in the Immigration line either.

When you pop out of the Customs and bag recheck area, you will approach a security point. If this area is particularly crowded, there is another farther down the concourse that is usually less populated.
