While we do not have specifics of each meal, please indicate your general dietary preferences. We will do our best to honor specific requests.
In Dublin for the 2018 convention we do not have a designated convention hotel. Instead we can suggest a range of accommodation options to suit various budgets and tastes. You chose where you want to stay, how much to pay, and how you want to book. Your choices include: Trinity on campus accommodations, hotels, large and small, airbnb apartments and cottages. Please refer to the Lodging Page.
Trinity College has a variety of relatively low-cost dorm rooms and apartments you can reserve. Smaller than hotel rooms, these accommodations have some hotel amenities.
One word of advice, book your lodging early! June is prime tourist season in Dublin.
Please refer to the Transportation Page.
