You can get a bus from any of those locations, although if you get on one at Mirissa, it might only be going as far as Galle. That's not a bad thing because if you change buses there, at a main station at Galle, you are far more likely to be able to bag a seat for the journey up to Colombo.

At Colombo, you will need to change buses again for the remaining journey up to Negombo.

They are no trains from Unawatuna or Mirissa, but you can catch a train from Bentota or Galle to Colombo then a bus or train from there to Negombo.
