Not sure about sleeping in the airport - its probably ok.
But dont go to Limerick (stab city), get a taxi or bus to the nearby village of six mile bridge. Far more pleasant. closer too.

How much is the bus and or taxi to six mile bridge?

Is there any hostels there?

Its a shitty little airport but no one will hassle you. I doubt you'll find any comfortable seats to sleep on so it will be a sleepless night.
