University Information

Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) has been an integral part of the Irish Higher Education system for more than a century. In that time it has continued to adapt and expand its provision to reflect a changing society and the wider economic environment. DIT is now one of Ireland’s largest and most innovative university-level institutions.

A comprehensive, dual-sector doctoral-awarding institution, DIT combines the academic excellence of a traditional university with professional, career-oriented learning, preparing graduates for productive leadership roles.  The core values reflected in its mission emphasize student-centred learning, useful knowledge, rigorous processes of discovery and critical enquiry, and support for entrepreneurship and diversity.

Local Information

One of the best things about Dublin is its size. Small enough to fill a perfect weekend without feeling like you’ve missed anything, Dublin also offers lots more to delve into if time allows. And getting around won’t eat into your time as the city has plenty of transport options, from buses and trams to city trains and Dublin bikes.

Long, rambling, unplanned walks around Dublin will ensure you’ll uncover your own city gems – from amazing home-baked treats and caffeine fixes in little hidden cafés and the perfect vintage find in a second-hand boutique, to a historical landmark with a thrilling back story or a chance conversation with a Dublin character – this city is layered and unique, and Dublin is full of treasures waiting to be found. Wander the city with a little purpose though, and you’ll add to the list of surprises.

The conference venue is located near the oldest part of the city, encompassing the area around Dublin CastleChrist Church and St Patrick’s Cathedral and taking in the old city walls. Part of the original Dubh Linn settlement, this area became the hub of the Vikings in Dublin and remnants of this time in history are still visible.

About Dubliin

Dublin, and indeed Ireland, has come a long way in the last 100 years. Our music, art and literature have travelled the world and made an impact on millions of hearts and minds. In fact, in 2010 Dublin was designated as a UNESCO City of Literature in recognition of its cultural profile and international standing as a city of literary excellence. Today, the city is a multi-cultural, creative hub and as we reflect, we also celebrate the evolution of one of the world’s greatest cities.

Dublin has a whole host of interesting cultural activities available that won’t trouble your wallet. The Irish Museum of Modern Art   (IMMA) on the grounds of the 17th century Royal Hospital Kilmainham contains magnificent sculptures, ancient chestnut trees and inviting avenues, while the National Gallery of Ireland near Trinity College is a great spot to appreciate fine art. You can also stop by the ‘Dead Zoo’, aka the Natural History Museum and marvel at the animal specimens on display – including a dodo skeleton – or visit the Irish Jewish Museum at the Walworth Road Synagogue. Remember, all are completely free!
