I'm struggling to find any info on this bro but if you contact Bus Eirann, it looks like they have a bus service from Dublin but I can't find any timetable info on the route. Alternatively, you may be able to get a bus to Navan and a taxi to Slane Castle.

What is it you're going for? If there's an event on, quite often transport is arranged.

From Dublin, you'll need to get a bus to Drogheda, and from there to Slane. The castle is about 1km walk from Slane village.

Look at the Bus Eireann site for details of buses.

Hi Noel G
Just a thought. aAren´t OASIS playing Slane next year? Isn´t Noel Gallagher a leading light of said band? Isn´t your name Noel G. I thought you´d be flying in by Helicopter. Really, I wouldn´t recommend travelling by bus. You´ll miss your sound check, they´ll confiscate your beer at the gate and get your shoes dirty walking through the field.
Just joking mate.
magykal1 has given you the right advice.
