TRAVEL + ACCOMMODATION

Accommodation

Dublin sports a vast array of various types of accommodation suited to different budgets. These are ranging from affordable hostels, such as Kinlay House, to comfortable hotels, such as O’Callaghan’s – Mont Clare, Davenport and Alexander – all situated just off the campus, halfway between our two main conference venues: the Long Room Hub in the College Green campus and the Arts Technology Research Lab (ATRL) in Pearse Street.

Especially for our delegates we have negotiated special rates from O’Callaghan’s Davenport Hotel. The weblink expires on the 25 February and all rooms not picked up are going to be automatically released on that date. Once booked the individual guests can cancel their rooms until March 23rd without charges.

For other affordable accommodation around Trinity College please consult the booking.com website.

Please make sure you make your booking well in advance as March and April are the heyday of the tourist season – St. Patrick’s Day will take place on 17 March 2017 while Easter Rising Centenary celebrations will take place during the Easter Weekend.
