It's best to hire a car and the drive is 1 1/4 hours. There is a train to Lagos but you will have to get a bus or taxi from Faro airport to Faro railway station and then another bus or taxi from Lagos to sagres.

From the Airport you can take a transfer to the city of Faro (fare is 1.65€ and there are buses roughly every 30 minutes). From Faro there is no direct transportation to Sagres, you can take either bus or train to Lagos and from there you have to take a bus to get to Sagres. The bus from Faro to Lagos would cost you 5,35€ and from Lagos to Sagres 3,40€. If you are arriving on a saturday or sunday make sure you check the timetables, since there are considerably less options than on weekdays.

I do agree with Sarah, the best choice would be to rent a car, it would save you a lot of time on the travels to and from the airport and it is the best way to get around once you get to Sagres (in Sagres it can be difficult to find taxis and buses are not frequent). There are several companies operating from the Airport of Faro, and if you are staying for longer than 3 days the daily fare will be around 40€. If you are chosing to rent a car, I advice you to book in advance, you can go to the airport website and from there be redirected to the webpages of the car-hire companies.

All of these websites are translated in English and you can check timetables, fares and book in advance if you want:
