Dublin airport departure question

Jump to last reply

I am wondering if Dublin airport presents any peculiar issues for travelers. We are departing from terminal 2 on a US Air flight midweek on a 9:30 a.m. plane. The airline's website shows that the ticket counter doesn't open until 7:30 a.m. I assume there will be a long line at the ticket counter at opening as the plane is an airbus 330. Thereafter, we need to deal with security and US customs prior to boarding.

We will be arriving at the airport by taxi from the Ballsbridge section of Dublin.

Given all this, does anyone have suggestions when to get to the airport to minimize the inevitable delays and attendant aggravation? Any other thoughts would also be appreciated.
Thanks
