How easy is it to find a taxi from the bus station?

Flying in to Shannon one Wednesday night in a few months. I'm not renting a car until Thursday morning because I don't trust myself to drive on either side of the road after flying for 18 hours, especially not the side I'm not used to. I'm renting a car in Limerick, so I'd like to stay overnight there. I've found that there's a bus that runs from the airport in Shannon to Limerick, but once I get to Limerick, how easy will it be for me to find a taxi to take me to a hotel? Any chance they're plentiful around the bus station around 10 p.m. on a weeknight, or will it take some effort to hunt one down?

There's a taxi rank outside the station.

For information on hotels visit www.limerick.ie. If only staying one night then there is a hotel straight across the street. The Railway Hotel is basic but clean.

Thank you! And thank you even more for the hotel suggestion. Crossing a street has got to be simple enough. All I'm going to be interested in at that point is a bed. And maybe some heat. :)

Alternatively you could stay by the Airport, The Park Inn is directly across from Arrivals or The Oakwood Arms in Shannon Town would be a good choice.
