Dublin to Limrick by train

It appears there are two Dublin train stations. We fly into Dublin from the US and will want to go from there by train to Limrick. Which station do we use

"Limerick", if you're checking train schedules.

You're going to go from Hueston Station in Dublin.

Schedules and booking on their website.

just to be pedantic it's Heuston Station ;-)

the Dublin Bus route 747 will take you there from the airport or alternatively a taxi. Note that many trains to Limerick require a change at Limerick Junction, although this is very straightforward. Best fares are available online 28 days in advance on www.irishrail.ie

LOL...it's all I can do not to spell it like "Euston" in London. I'm always getting the two confused.

The only drawback to the bus service is that there is no toilet on board, some might that a bit uncomfortable.

Train also has at least a snack trolly and most on the route some kind of buffet bar. The trip from Limerick Junction in to Limerick takes about 25 mins.
