Dublin (map) was founded by the Vikings in 841 and today is Ireland’s capital city, steeped in history and buzzing with energy. Medieval, Georgian and modern architecture provide a backdrop to a friendly cosmopolitan city. Dublin is a thriving centre for culture and is home to a great musical and literary tradition. Its native sons include Shaw, Yeats, Joyce, Wilde and Beckett.
The city’s attractions include castles, museums, art galleries, pubs and cafes. You can combine shopping with sight-seeing and history. A stroll through the city is like a walk through time, from Government Buildings on Dawson Street, down to the General Post Office on O’Connell Street, centre stage to the historical 1916 Easter Rising.
Within half an hour of the city are mountain walks, stately homes and gardens, numerous golf courses, sandy beaches and fishing villages. The conference venue is located right in the centre of the city and is very easy to navigate around with everything within walking distance. A city map will be provided in your delegate pack to ensure you are familiar with the city.
