Hotel & Travel Information

We have reserved a block of rooms at the nearby Mespil Hotel. Dublin has an unfortunate shortage of hotel rooms, and while October is not high season, it’s still wise to book as far in advance as possible and be prepared to pay big city prices (even though Dublin is small).

Conference Venue
The conference will be held on the University College Dublin campus. It is just south of the city centre. If the map link above doesn’t work, the address is UCD, Stillorgan Road, Belfield, Dublin 4.
