There's a cheap Airport shuttle to and from the DART, as well as an airbus into the main stations.

not sure if the airdart is stil working...
its suspended... http://www.aerdart.ie/

To be honest getting teh air coach into town might be teh best bet, its £8 return and it shouldnt be bad.

If you wanted an ODD route, you could get URBUS to castleknock, as it terminates about 100 yards fropm castleknock train station which connects to maynooth, but you know how it is.
