About Dublin

Easy to get to and around, Dublin has both the state-of-the-art facilities and the expertise to cater for any conference, meeting, or event. The city’s mixture of the traditional and the modern will excite and inspire, while the famed Irish hospitality will give your event that extra dimension.

Captivating experience: Dublin is a breath of fresh air, a truly unique capital that’s steeped in tradition yet young at heart. In the historic, compact city centre there are lots to do and see, and visitors will love the rich selection of galleries, museums, restaurants, pubs, and shops, not to mention the traditionally warm welcome from Dubliners. Easy access: Ireland, ideally located on the edge of Europe, is less than one hour from London, less than two hours from Paris or Brussels and just six hours from the east coast of the US by air. Dublin Airport is Ireland’s busiest airport, with 45 airlines flying to 192 destinations, including direct scheduled daily flights from North America, mainland Europe, Britain, and regular flights from the Middle East. Dublin is the only EU capital with all-day US Pre-Clearance. Dublin International Airport is only 12 km from the city centre and the city itself is small and compact and is tailor-made for carefree exploring by foot.

World-renowned for their warm welcome and genuine sense of fun, the Irish people’s enviable passion for life promises to entice colleagues and peers from around the globe, guaranteeing high attendance at any international event.
