About the hotel


The conference will take place in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dublin.  The hotel is in Dun Laoghaire, a seaside suburb of Dublin with excellent transport links to the city centre and airport.  It is a popular destination for Dubliners and tourists alike.  The hotel is family friendly with a spa, leisure centre and swimming pool which will be open to conference attendees.  The hotel is located close the the sea front, with a range of walks and other outdoor activities in easy reach.  If you are feeling brave, you can take a dip in the Irish Sea at the famous Forty Foot swimming area, a short walk from the hotel! Other tourist attractions and the city centre are easily accessed by public transport, no more than 5 minutes from the hotel.   



Getting around Dublin

For transport from Dublin airport to the Royal Marine Hotel, we recommend the Aircoach Service, route 703, which will pick up guests from both terminals and drop you a 5 minute walk from the hotel


To travel to the city centre, the DART rail system is approximately 5 minutes walk from the hotel and the Dublin bus routes are approximately 3 minutes walk. 


There is so much to do and see in our beautiful city and surrounding areas, and we recommend you check out for more details.
