Congress Venue

Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. The campus occupies 190,000 m2 (47 acres), with many buildings, both old and new, ranged around large courts and two playing fields. The Library of Trinity College is a copyright library for Ireland and the United Kingdom, containing over 4.5 million books and significant quantities of maps, manuscripts and music and the famous Book of Kells which was written in about 800AD.

The university campus contains many buildings of architectural merit, especially from the 18th and 19th centuries. These include the Chapel and Examination Hall designed by Sir William Chambers and the Museum Building designed by the Irish architects Thomas Newnham Deane and Benjamin Woodward.

Trinity retains a strong collegiate and “campus” atmosphere despite its location in the centre of a capital city (and despite it being one of the most significant tourist attractions in Dublin). The university was also a leading pioneer when it came to women gaining third level education. The first female enrolled in Trinity, or ‘Trinners’ as students refer to it, was in 1904. Among many famous students to attend the college were playwrights Oliver Goldsmith, Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, J.M Synge and Samuel Beckett. Trinity’s lawns and cobbled quads provide a pleasant haven in the heart of the city. This 16th century campus, surrounded by attractive gardens, is an ideal location for congress’s with well-equipped lecture theatres, accommodation, banking, travel agency, shopping and tourist attractions. All congress hotels are within walking distance of Trinity College.
