Event location

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and is situated on the East coast at the mouth of the River Liffey.  The city is renowned for its vibrant atmosphere, but there is a lot more to Dublin than the 10 million pints of Guinness produced every day!

Dublin, the true city of love, is the resting place of the famous Saint Valentine who is buried in Whitefriar Street Church. Dublin also boasts plenty of medieval buildings to visit, including Dublin Castle and St Patrick’s Cathedral, not to mention the wide selection of brilliant shopping spots, bars and thriving art quarters.
