How to get to the Conference?

Farmleigh, built in the 18th Century and situated on 78 acres of parkland in the North West of Dublin’s Phoenix Park is a magnificent example of Georgian architecture. Its great charm lies in the eclecticism of its interior decoration ranging from the classical style to Jacobean, Louis XV, Louis XVI and Georgian.

Farmleigh’s location offers delegates a wide choice of hotels to choose from and easy access to many events happening in and around Dublin, during the pre-Christmas season.
