I've never used one, how does it work? Cheers
Leap is your best bet. You can get the card in the ticket machines in Heuston. Pop credit on it using either the machine in the station or app on your phone if you have an android.
Then you just tap it on the validator on the right hand side as your walking into the bus. This deducts the mac fare for the route your on. If going shorter than that, use the drivers ticket machine.
If you are using multiple busses throughout the day your fare will automatically be capped at 7eur (or 10eur if you use it on the Luas, DART or train as well). If you use two modes within 90mins of each other, you get a 1eur discount on the second trip.
