google "Leap Card". These are smart cards and can be used on bus/luas/DART and Commuter trains. You buy them with money on and 'tag on/off and top up when required

You can buy a 7 day bus/luas ticket which would be suitable. You would have to pay separately to use the suburban trains but these are generally not that expensive. You should be able to buy the ticket at the travel information desk in the airport or maybe buy online in advance. You will be able to use this ticket on the 747 express bus to and from the airport


I dont think the Leap card is suitable for what you want. At the moment it is just a smart card for paying cash fares but its functionality is limited. When it is fully functional it will offer fare capping, daily, weekly passes etc but it is being rolled out slowly with new features added every few months.
