Recently I flew from Dublin airport to Germany on business. On return, I got a bus to Sprucefield - with some difficulty.
While I had no problem going down via Bus Eireann, I did experience problems with their counterpart here.
Here is a list of things which Translink needs to address:
1. Buses which do not follow the timetables
2. Drivers who do not offer to assist with luggage
3. Double-deckers that do not have low-loading, so it is difficult to store luggage without breaking your back
4. Uncomfortable and crowded buses.
Why can't Translink buy buses which actually have shock absorbers? Bus Eireann's are miles better - so too, was the air coach (now no longer running).
Really, the transport to Belfast from Dublin airport is dire.
