For those who need accommodation, we recommend the Skylon Hotel. It is a 5 minute walk from the conference venue, and 15 minutes by bus to both Dublin airport and the city centre. There are also several guest houses and B&Bs in and around Drumcondra which are walking distance from the conference venue and, of course, many options to suit every budget in the city centre itself.
For those traveling from overseas, Aer Lingus fly direct to Dublin Airport from many European and US cities. There are also several other airlines who provide either direct flights or indirect flights via London. These may be cheaper, but will likely be longer due to the connection in London. If you're flying from Europe, Ryanair provide low cost flights from many locations direct to Dublin Airport. Beware that Ryanair often fly from smaller airports which are often more difficult to get to.
To get to the conference venue or the recommended hotel from the airport, you can either take Dublin Bus route 16 (note that exact change is required on all buses), or a taxi from the airport (which takes about 10-20 minutes depending on traffic).
There is limited parking availability for visitors on the All Hallows Campus. Visitor Permits can be obtained from the main reception upon arrival to the grounds. There is also some Pay-by-Text parking spaces across the road in our St. Patrick's College Campus. For further details, please contact the DCU Estates Office.
There is a modest canteen on-site which serves coffee, soup, sandwiches and other snacks. For something more substantial, there are several choices in Drumcondra village which is only a couple of minutes walk away. Some choices are:
