Visa and Passports
European Union citizens should have their passport or National Identity Card to enter Ireland as most carriers by air or sea require some form of identification with photograph. Visitors are advised to check what form of ID is required with the individual airline, tour operator or travel agent before travelling.
Visitors from other countries do require a passport, and it is wise to check with your travel operator whether your originating country requires a visa. Please contact us if you require a letter of invitation for a visa application.

Travelling by Air
Dublin has its own International Airport.
If you are travelling from the airport, a 747 bus costs €6 one-way. Journey time to City Centre will take 30-40 minutes. Coaches services will charge slightly higher. A taxi will cost around €20-€25 to the city centre/conference venue.
If you’re going directly to the conference venue, on the 747 bus ask the driver to let you off at Christchurch, from where it’s a 10 minute walk to both campuses:
From Heuston train station, a taxi should cost around €10 to Kevin St/Aungier St. It should be even less from Connolly train station. There are several bus options but all of them involve some walking, so you might like to check these out yourselves on google maps.
Travelling by Sea
Dublin has a large port to which ferries from both Britain and France operate regularly.
