Convention Centre Dublin

Spencer Dock, Dublin City

Exterior Convention Centre, Dublin, at night,
One of Dublin City’s most striking buildings (especially lit up at night), the Convention Centre at Spencer Dock sits majestically perched on the edge of the River Liffey. Earning architect Kevin Roche a nod at the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards, this unique curved structure has become a true Dublin icon since it opened in 2010. With a capacity to seat 2,000 delegates in its state-of-the-art auditorium, the building also boasts a 4,500 square metre exhibition and banqueting space. From its top floors, you’ll be afforded fantastic views of the river and city, making this the perfect central location to host your next event. What’s more, you’ll be within walking distance of the vibrant Grand Canal area, cultural quarter of Temple Bar and shopping district of Grafton Street.
 

Adare Manor

Adare, Co. Limerick

Exterior image Adare Manor, Co Limerick
Set on 840 acres of lush green estate, this Gothic masterpiece in Adare is as unique as the man who took 28 years to build it! The project initially began in 1832 as a way for Lady Caroline Wyndham to keep her eccentric husband, the second Earl of Dunraven, entertained. But Adare Manor soon became a labour of love for the Earl, who oversaw various architectural quirks, like including 365 leaded glass windows to represent the days of the year! Today, this stunning structure is the epitome of luxury; from its dramatic façade to its lavish, old-worldly interior. 350 delegates can be seated in their opulent banquet room, while there’s a capacity for a meeting of 440. Nearby highlights include Limerick City, the mighty River Shannon, Lahinch (for the surfers among you), and the haunting karst landscape of the Burren.
 

Ashford Castle

Cong, Co. Mayo

Ashford Castle, County Mayo, At Night
Awarded the ‘No. 1 Resort & Inn in the UK and Ireland’ at the 2016 World’s Best Awards, Ashford Castle Hotel certainly cuts a dashing figure, set on 350 acres of idyllic woodland in Co. Mayo. It boasts a captivating history too. In 1228, the de Burgos – a Norman family – defeated the local Irish clan, the O’Connors, and established this castle as their stronghold. It went on to eventually change hands, being bought by Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness (yes, that Guinness!) in 1852. Since it became a hotel in 1915, there have been a number of epic add-ons; a 30-seat cinema, wine-tasting tunnels, billiards room and spa, to name but a few. There’s capacity for a reception of 120, and banquet of 75 – you’ll ‘dine like royalty’ in the opulent George V Room. Nearby highlights include Connemara, Ballinrobe Racecourse and Galway City.
 

Europe Hotel & Resort

Fossa, Killarney, Co. Kerry

Europe Hotel and resort County Kerry
Overlooking the famous Lakes of Killarney, the Europe Hotel boasts fantastic views of the surrounding green countryside. Indeed, reflected in Lough Lein you’ll see the magnificent Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, a soaring mountain range that’s home to Ireland’s highest peak; Carrauntoohil. Delegates are in for a truly luxurious stay at the Europe, since it was awarded ‘Ireland’s Best Spa’ at the 2016 Keelings Gold Medal Awards. It’s got capacity for 600 delegates, and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to planning local activities; Killarney National Park, the Ring of Kerry, Gougane Barra and the Gap of Dunloe are just some the hotel’s nearby must-sees. 
 

Jameson Distillery

Old Distillery Walk, Midleton, Co. Cork

Jameson Distillery exterior
Step back in time at the Jameson Distillery, located just outside Midleton in the southern Irish county of Cork. While the building has been lovingly restored, it still retains an old-time charm – indeed, much of its exposed brickwork dates right back to 1795. It’s a great option for an event; delegates will learn all about the time-honoured brewing process, and of course, get to sample its find craftsmanship! The venue has a capacity for 300, and is a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding Cork countryside – it’s a county famed for its wild and scenic beauty. Nearby highlights include Cobh, Bantry Bay, Dursey Island and Barleycove beach.
 

Guinness Storehouse

St. James’s Gate, Dublin City

The gravity bar guinness storehouse
Located in the heart of the Liberties, one of the oldest parts of Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse is absolutely steeped in history. After Arthur Guinness famously signed a 9,000-year-lease on the building in 1759, the area became the much-loved home of this iconic brewery. The visitor centre is a sight to behold too; its tall, curved steel frame represents a delicious pint, while the Gravity Bar offers panoramic views of the city. Across its floors, it’s got a capacity to hold 2,000 delegates, or together, it’ll seat 650. It’s a stone’s throw from the city-centre, Phoenix Park and Irish Museum of Modern Art.
 

University of Cork

College Road, Cork City

Perched on the outskirts of Cork City, UCC was built close to where the monastery of Saint Finbarr (the county’s patron saint) once stood. Named Irish University of the Year by the Sunday Times on five occasions (including 2017), it’s an iconic structure that boasts a dramatic Gothic Quadrangle at its centre. There are various rooms available for conferences and events, including the Aula Maxima North Wing which can seat 230 delegates. The hub of Cork City is full of bars, restaurants and cafés, while other must-see highlights include Fota Wildlife Park, Blarney Castle and Cobh.
 

Belfast Waterfront

Lanyon Place, Belfast City

The Waterfront at night, Belfast.
Looking out onto Belfast’s winding River Lagan, the Belfast Waterfront celebrates its 20th birthday in 2017. A striking venue, its architects coated the roof in copper so that it will eventually turn green, matching the dome of nearby Belfast City Hall. Over the years, it has hosted everything from US President Barack Obama’s 2013 visit to the Belfast leg of Britain’s Got Talent in 2014! The massive auditorium holds 2,000 delegates, while there’s a capacity to seat 450 banquet-style. The charming streets of Belfast can be explored by foot, while the Giant’s Causeway – a natural geological phenomenon located in north Antrim – is well worth a visit too.
