Conference Venue

University of Limerick (UL) and Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD) are easily accessible for travellers to the West of Ireland.

The region has its own airport (Shannon - 30 minute drive) as well as easy transport routes (motorways) from other parts of the country (Dublin, Cork, Galway etc.). Ryanair and Aer Lingus (as well as many other carriers) offer low priced flights into Ireland.  Flights operate to Shannon from the UK, Europe (including European hub airports) and the USA (with US Customs Pre-Clearance). Dublin Airport also offers a wide variety of destinations, also covering Asia, and is around a 2hr drive from Limerick. Cork Airport is also just a 1hr 45 min drive away.

Public transport such as trains and buses operate regularly (mostly every hour) from Dublin to Limerick. Taxis and a regular bus service operate from Shannon Airport to Limerick. Prices range from €10 return on coaches, €15.00 return on trains (all from Dublin). Local taxi prices from Shannon Airport to UL are around €45.00, and coaches from €6.00 return. Car hire is available at all airports.

If delegates are staying in on-campus accommodation, no transport will be required, as it is within walking distance of the venue. If some delegates wish to use bicycles, arrangements could be coordinated through the Limerick Smarter Travel Initiative.

If delegates are staying in off-campus accommodation, some are within walking distance (10 minutes approximately). Taxis are available to and from UL and LSAD.
