Catching the bus in Cashel to Dublin.

I have a quick and simple question. Do I need to already have my ticket to catch the bus to Dublin from Cashel or can I buy one at someplace near the stop (or perhaps even from the drivers on Bus Éireann)?

Thank you!

You can buy on the bus but it is cheaper to book on-line in advance.

No problem buying from the driver.

Buying online gives a 5% discount on the onboard/ station fare. If buying online it may be worth considering joining the béClub (free and easy to join) as there's a once off €5 off ticket price for members.

If buying online the e-mail confirmation needs to be printed off and handed to the driver in exchange for the ticket. Online purchases are not specific to any departure - just travel on whatever time of bus best suits on the day of travel.

If buying onboard (in cash only) it's helpful to have the exact amount ready or a selection of coins and notes.

The timetable of the X8 (Cork-Cashel-Dublin-Dublin Airport) changed around a fortnight ago and departure times from Cashel are slightly different.

visitourist - it's not 100% clear from your post, but is it correct to say, that while a ticket purchased online is not specific to any departure, however it is date specific, i.e. you must travel on the date for which you purchased it.
