The slickest way to get from Exeter airport to Barnstaple

I will fly from Dublin and then hope to catch the most convenient public transport from the Exeter airport to Barnstaple. Anybody any thoughts? I arrive in Exeter around 9 at night.

It is about 20-25 minutes drive to Exeter St David's station (traffic is heavy in Exeter).

You can get a Stagecoach bus as detailed here:

Then get the hourly Tarka line service to Barnstaple:

When you get to Barnstaple the bus station is a 10-15 minute walk from the train station for your next bus (I think First also do a service via Chivenor, the 3 to Ilfracombe?):
