Updated best way to travel from Dublin Airport to Shannon

I see that this topic was covered a few years ago. I would like to know if there is any changes. What is the best way to get from Dublin Airport to Shannon Airport or better yet to the Bunratty Castle?

Take a train or a bus to Limerick and then get a bus or a cab to Bunratty.

However, if you can hire a car - great. There is an excellent road network between Dublin and Bunratty and Shannon.

Another option is to get the Express Bus from Dublin Airport to Galway and then the X51 Limerick bus (stops @ Bunratty going south only).

South is GOOD, though, Tony as Bunratty is on the same side of the road.

Its the 51 not the X51 sorry. For Bunratty going north from Limerick by bus you either have to get off at Sixmilebridge or go up to Shannon and come back down
