Airlink Express is the BEST way to get to/from Dublin Airport and Downtown Dublin! The Hop-on Hop-off bus was excellent for an overview of Dublin and it makes sense to just buy a one day pass. The traffic is so congested in Dublin that it was easier to walk around the city on the second day (and take in all the wonderful street life) than to spend time on the bus stuck in traffic.

We were staying at an airport hotel so used this to get in and back from the city as well as get to all the main attractions. We originally had a mobile ticket (which cannot be accepted) which we were able to go to the kiosk at the airport with to then convert to a printed ticket. The drivers were funny and informative.
