Staying in Dublin

 

Confererence attendees are encouraged to book their own accommodation well in advance of the conference date. Please see below for helpful advice on finding accommodation in Dublin. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin.

City Centre Accommodation

Trinity College is located in Dublin city centre, placing it within walking distance of many different hotels and hostels at a variety of price ranges. Some hotels within fifteen minutes’ walk of the campus include Jury’s Inn (Parnell Street), Wynn’s Hotel (Abbey Street) and Trinity City (Pearse Street). Some hostels within fifteen minutes’ walk include Abigail’s (Aston Quay) and Isaac’s (Frenchman’s Lane) hostels. For attendees who prefer guesthouses, the village of Drumcondra has a large number of B&Bs (Bed and Breakfasts/Guest houses) and is approximately one hour’s walk or 15-30 minutes via Dublin Bus from Trinity.

Public Transport to Trinity

Trinity is well served by public transport, with the majority of bus, tram and train routes having a stop within a few minutes’ walk of the campus. For bus routes, attendees can use the Dublin Bus planner to identify what routes bring you to Trinity College from the location of your accommodation.

Trinity is also served by the Luas (tram), with the Green line (serving the north and south of the city) passing immediately beside the College (Trinity – southbound only – and Dawson stops), while the Abbey street stop of the Red line (serving the west and south-west of the city) is approximately five minutes’ walk from the campus. Routes and stops can be viewed here.

The DART line (light rail), which serves the coastal regions of the city, also passes by Trinity (Pearse Station). Routes and stops can be viewed here.

All public transport can be paid for using a Leap card. A new Leap card costs €5 – however, this €5 is then credited on the card and can be used to pay for transport. Credit can be added to the card via an app or in stores. Leap cards can be bought in many retail outlets, which can be found here.

Accommodation Outside the City Centre

Accommodation prices in Dublin can be high, particularly in the city centre where there is high demand during the summer months. As such, some attendees may prefer to look for accommodation options outside of the city centre. 

Some scenic areas that are well connected to Trinity via direct train (10 - 20 minutes)  include Sandymount, Merrion, Booterstown, Blackrock, Monkstown,, Dun Laoghaire, and Clontarf

Accommodation for Young Scholars

 

The Young Scholars Conference Committee has set up a slack group for any Young Scholar looking for accommodation. The purpose of the group is to give advice to any Young Scholars on areas to look for accommodation and to link Young Scholars from different locations who may be looking to share accommodation:
