If they are waiting outside the arrivals door when you drive up you should be able to stop to place luggage in boot of car. You will not be able to wait for any length of time. Other than that park in the short term car park as I generally do but try and time it to save on parking charges.

yes, if you are sitting in your car, you can get maybe 15 mins before being asked to move on. but you have a better chance actually using the departure level, making sure that your arrival knows to go up one floor. otherwise, drive around to the maxol filling station and get your arrival to phone you when exiting the arrivals hall.

I should mention that arrivals pick up needs your arrival to cross at the pedestrian lights and walk through the st carpark, past the shop and then over the bus stop area.

Dublin airport has it's own app for smart phones with arrival times. However doesn't help much as time from landing to coming out of airport could be anything from 20 mins to over an hour depending on passport control, baggage etc. etc. Otherwise follow nakagoli's suggestion - wait outside area until your passenger calls, then meet at departures level.
