My only concern with this plan is that I'll not be coming straight
from the airport to the retreat, but do plan on going straight from
Church to the airport (services end at 14:00, and I've a 17:30
flight).  I fear that obtaining and dropping a car will be a bit of a
logistical nightmare (and given my different schedule, not very useful
for other people).

I prefer the one in Bray, but thanks for the information, nonetheless.

I'd still like to know of taxi or car hire service is available from
the hostel.  While I haven't ruled out renting a car for the entire
stay, knowing the availability and cost of a taxi would help make that
decision.  Does anybody know how to get that information?  (Or, does
anybody have the contact information of the hostel, so I could ask
them directly?)

As a last resort, it's only a 11 km walk. :)
