Getting here:

There is only one airport in Dublin, but it is well connected to most countries. To get from the airport to UCD, the most direct option is the Aircoach, which goes from directly outside the terminal once per hour, 24 hours a day. Get the Aircoach 700 towards Leopardstown, and it will stop directly outside UCD. A return ticket to UCD is €16.

Once you are in the city , the main Dublin Bus routes that serve UCD are the 39a, 145 and 46a. Note that Dublin buses only take Euro coins (no notes) or a pre-paid Leap card that you can buy in many shops.

If you are driving, details of paid parking are here. Note that there is quite limited parking for visitors during term time.


There are a number of hotels in the area.

Talbot Hotel Stillorgan       30 min walk, ~€98 per night

Radison Blu St Helens    18 min walk, ~€135 per night

Donnybrook Lodge (B&B)   10 min walk, ~€84 per night

There are also quite a few airbnb places in the area.


The conference dinner will probably be on Monday evening. Details TBD.
