I think this may be my first actual question that I've had to post in my planning process, with all of the information already posted! I'll be arriving in Dublin to start my 12 day solo trip on Sept 2nd. My Aer Lingus flight from Chicago arrives super early at 5:15 am.
I've been pondering the purchase of either the 3 day Freedom Ticket, which would include the Airlink + HoHo Bus + Dublin bus services, or the Airlink/HoHo Combo ticket (I'd be buying the Return ticket, to go back to the airport on Sept 4 to pickup my rental car from Dan Dooley). I'm leaning toward the Freedom Ticket, so if I'm tired of walking and not close to a HoHo stop, I can just hop on the regular bus.
My questions, though, really revolve around the actual purchase of and picking up the ticket. I'm concerned that any purchase locations won't be open until several hours after I arrive. The Freedom ticket website says that online reservation vouchers must be redeemed at Dublin Airport Terminal 1 Office (I arrive at Terminal 2), which doesn't open until 8 AM. Is this really the only airport location to redeem online vouchers for the Freedom Ticket? And if I wait until I get there (which I'm fine with), where exactly do I purchase the ticket? I'm not seeing any reference online to being able to purchase these tickets from automated machine, and I haven't seen any reference here to that particular question - despite reading TA [ahem] more than once a day.
You're help is much appreciated, as it has been in reading TA for the past year! :-)
