Dublin coach, scary reviews...any recent riders?

We need to catch bus or train after landing in Dublin 12:35 p.m. on a Wednesday in Sept. heading to Kilkenny. The train gets us there a little later than I'd hoped but the bus timing is ok... looks like the 600 or M9 express from Red Cow Luas is the one to take but is it a gamble or are you finding it reliable and safe...
and if we find that day we need to take the 1510 train are we likely to get three tickets last minute?
thanks so much, help on these little details is what makes this forum so invaluable...

As I understood it, RandR is referencing a recent spate of terrible reviews and complaints about the Dublin Coach busline in specific. I traveled from Ennis to Dublin in July of 2018 on Dublin Coach; it was comfortable, on time, good wifi, a bathroom, no customer service or other problems. My b&B host recommended it and said it was very popular with locals. However, I see it is currently rated "terrible" by something like 44% of reviewers on Tripadvisor. I wonder if these are honest reviews or if service really has deteriorated. I hope you get a response from someone who has used it more recently.
