My travel plan then looks like this:

5:35pm KLM 3159 Arrives at Dublin Airport
6:00pm 747 Bus leaves Airport
6:45pm 747 Bus arrives Central Bus Station
--- Walk to Connolly Station, buy ticket, etc ~10 mins
6:54pm/7:09pm DART leaves for Bray Station
7:39pm/7:54pm DART arrives at Bray Station
8:05pm 185 leaves from Bray Station
8:35pm 185 arrives at "Shop River" stop
--- Walk to Hostel ~40 mins
9:15pm Arrive at Knockree Hostel

Weather should be partly cloudy, with 95% chance of rain between 7pm
and 10pm in Enniskerry, so I might need to bust out my rain jacket on
the walk to the hostel. I'm from Portland, so this is perfectly
acceptable, as it's constantly raining here, and my backpack is
*seriously* waterproof.
