Travel from Dublin Airport to Sligo City

Jump to last reply

Hi...This will be my first trip back to Ireland in 17 years. Now that I am a senior (68) I do not want to drive in Ireland on this trip (traveling on my own). Given recent health limitations (get tired very easily), I really want to make this trip very easy for me. Not concerned about expense. I plan to fly into Dublin Airport and stay somewhere for 1-2 nights before I head to my family in Sligo. My focus is to visit family but I wouldn't mind a lovely dinner, real comfort & service and a good sleep before journeying to Sligo. Here are my questions:
1. What 's the best way to get to Sligo City...train(travel time?) or bus (frequent stops?)? Can you leave right from the airport?
2. If I stay overnight, should I stay at the airport hotel or go into Dublin for an overnight. Is that too much of a hassle? Is their public transportation into Dublin from the airport?
3. I would prefer a train (I think) to Sligo...more relaxing. Is that very convenient from the airport or is it best to go into Dublin to get the train?
4. What is an excellent hotel you would suggest in Dublin? Should it be close to the train or bus station for convenience? Would you eat in or go out for dinner?
I appreciate any advice. Thanks for your time.
