Marcus Kirwan of Cooley Road, Drimnagh was accused of luring his victim, David Byrne, into a fatal ambush in Inchicore by sending text messages pretending to be a girl.
It took the jury just more than four hours to return a unanimous guilty verdict at the Central Criminal Court.
The victim's father David Hayes has expressed satisfaction with the verdict:
"Overjoyed," he said. "I'm delighted. I've been waiting for this day for a long, long time and justice has been done now.
"I'm very, very happy."
