CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE ROIMH – A HUNDRED THOUSAND WELCOMES!
Ireland is steeped in rich cultural heritage and is known as the land of saints and scholars, poets and songwriters. WONCA Europe delegates are invited to experience Dublin of the 100,000 welcomes we are so famous for!
Dublin, our capital city, is a vibrant, accessible and inspirational city, easy to get to and around with state of the art facilities and the expertise to cater for the WONCA Europe Conference. It is a City of Living Culture, that truly captures your imagination with cobbled alleys, Viking remains and Georgian squares. Dublin’s history goes back over a thousand years. Step back in time in this city full of literary landmarks, from the James Joyce Tower to Trinity College, alma mater of many of Ireland’s greatest writers. Fine museums and art galleries chronicle Dublin’s long and colourful past, while the pubs and cafés buzz with traditional and contemporary entertainment. Throughout Dublin city and county you will find an abundance of visitor attractions to discover and explore, from the most majestic museums to more modern centres of entertainment. Whether your interest is sport, history, art or literature, whether you want to follow a heritage trail, eat in a castle or follow in the footsteps of Dublin’s many musical and literary greats, there’s something for everyone in Dublin and a story at every glance. A 20-minute journey will bring the visitor from the bustling city to the charming coastal towns and villages of the county which dot the sometimes rugged, sometimes sanded coastline and provide boundless opportunities for craft shopping, water sports, seafood dining and picturesque walks against the spectacular backdrop of Dublin Bay.
Our chosen venue is the Convention Centre Dublin, which is a purpose built, state of the art facility in the heart of the city, which is only 15 minutes from Dublin airport with excellent transport links and within easy access of a variety of accommodation options. The ICGP have held many of its annual conferences here and can attest to its commitment to deliver a truly exceptional service with the delegate in mind.
