While Dublin has many accommodation options, June is a popular month for tourists and conference delegates are advised to book early to avoid disappointment. There is added pressure on accommodation in Dublin as many hotels continue to host displaced people from Ukraine. While Dublin City University (DCU) may release some student accommodation closer to the start of the conference, bookings are currently on hold as these rooms may be required to host Ukrainian families over the summer.
The following hotel options are recommended due to their close proximity to the conference venue. However, delegates may prefer to stay in the central city, a short taxi, bus or walk from DCU’s St Patrick’s campus. Please note that the Gala Dinner will be held in the city centre.
Dublin Skylon Hotel
Located in the heart of Drumcondra village, with many restaurants and supermarkets nearby, and less than a 5-minute walk from the conference venue, the Skylon Hotel is the most convenient accommodation for delegates. An express taxi/bus lane is located directly outside the hotel giving guests quick accessibility to the Dublin city centre. The city centre is approximately a 30-minute walk from the hotel.

This large older hotel with 200 rooms is only a 10-minute walk from the conference venue. It has an attached leisure centre, and the hotel is conveniently located on the main route to Dublin’s International Airport (6km). Only 3km from the centre of Dublin (a 35-minute walk), taxis and regular buses pass by every few minutes. Find more information, here.
