Why Dublin?

Easy to get to and easy to get around!

Conveniently located at the gateway to Europe, Ireland is easily accessible for UK, US and EMEA delegates. Dublin Airport serves over 180 routes, including daily flights to all major UK and European cities. Ferry services from Dublin and Rosslare ports also make it easy to bring in equipment and goods from the UK and beyond.

Dublin is a small and compact city, with a great transport infrastructure, making it easy to get around and meaning nothing is ever too far away! Offering an excellent road, rail and tram network, over 10,000 taxis (with very friendly drivers!), and a fantastic ‘dublinbikes’ scheme, your delegates will be spoilt for choice.

Dublin Convention Bureau is on hand to offer advice and support for your international conference. And, with over 20,000 competitively-priced bedrooms, offering a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, and a host of inspirational venues for gala banquets, Dublin will truly impress!

A serious place to do business and a great place to relax

Dublin is more than just a great conference location. Combining a solid reputation for education and innovation, with great accessibility, it is no coincidence that Dublin is now the European headquarters of many of the world’s leading corporations, and a centre for academic research and innovation. As the home to many of the world’s top ICT, Financial and Pharmaceutical corporations, it is a serious place to do business.

Yet, Dublin has not forgotten its roots and is steeped in a rich cultural heritage that begs to be explored. All year round, the city is alive with music, art and theatre of all kinds and, of course, art galleries and museums abound. All complemented by an impressive range of restaurants, cafés and shops, where delegates are often surprised by the city’s competitiveness and value for money.

With a range of government initiatives and incentives available to support your association or corporate conference bid, and one of Europe’s most esteemed conference venues at hand, Dublin is the ideal destination for any and all events.
