Ireland Car rental ---Dooley's but reservation on Expedia

We have booked a car on Expedia...rental car company is Payless car rental...and Expedia is telling us to go to the Dooley car rental counter at Dublin airport.
We have booked an automatic compact car to be picked up at Dublin airport.

We will be charging the rental on capital one world mastercard...so not buying CDW from rental company.

Has anyone used something like this before?
I am thinking that since this reservation is serviced by Dooley's we should be OK.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
We are leaving for Ireland in a week.
Thanks for your help with this question.

I would email Dooleys for confirmation and written acceptance of the mastercard insurance coverage. the last thing you need is a nasty shock at the rental desk.

Hi Magical,
I just got back for our Ireland trip on Tuesday. I booked our car through Expedia.ie, ( The Ireland site ) and went with Eurocar. All taxes, insurance was included in the price. I too was concerned about using a different site, but there was no problem at all. Eurocar just looked at the reservation, no questions asked. Expedia.ie had the best prices anywhere, and I did a lot of shopping for an automatic that would hold 4 people and all their luggage. We did buy the super CDW and the extra driver fee. No problem returning the car either. We were charged up front for the full tank of gas, so just try to bring the car back as empty as possible.

Thanks Jstv2Crz & Tony2phones for your response.
I looked at the CDW deal they offered on Expedia, but opted not to get it because not sure if the car rental company would accept it at the counter.Jstv2Crz, Good to know you had a good experience.
So I got a capital one world mastercard who have given me a letter (actually it's Master Rental that provides the coverage and letter). So CDW should be covered by the credit card. I understand that I will not be able to add super CDW since the credit card requires that I decline all other insurance.
I have emailed Dooley's to verify that they will accept the world mastercard for CDW. Also I feel good that Dooley's is the Irish representative for Payless Car rental---Dooley's seem to have good write-ups on fodors. Waiting for Doolet's reply.
