Travelling to the Venue / Within Dublin City
From the airport:
The airport is conveniently located 10km north of Dublin city centre, with excellent roads links to The Convention Centre Dublin which is only 20 minutes away via the Port Tunnel, which brings visitors directly into the Spencer Dock development area. The CCD is less than ten minutes from Dublin’s two mainline railway stations (Connolly and Heuston) which serve all the major towns and cities in Ireland.
Dublin Bikes are a perfect way to get around the city, while minimising your effect on the local environment. There are 40 Dublin Bikes stations distributed throughout the city centre to enable easy access and optimal use. Located in close proximity to each other, every station has a minimum of 15 stands in place. There are two stations located in the Docklands area beside The CCD:
• Custom House Quay – Northside beside the Sean O’Casey Bridge
• Pearse Street – Southside near Pearse Street Train Station
The CCD is easily accessible by road, given its city centre location and proximity to Ireland’s motorway network. It is only minutes from the Dublin Port Tunnel with connections to the upgraded M50 motorway and Dublin Airport. It is also next to the new Samuel Beckett Bridge which spans the River Liffey, aiding access between the North and South of the city.
Parking : The CCD has its own underground car park, and there are 1,600 spaces nearby in local car parks, as well as considerable on street ‘pay and display’ parking on North Wall Quay and adjoining roads.
