For this year's conference we would like to encourage more environmentally friendly means of travel. If you are travelling from the UK, please consider arriving to Ireland by Rail & Sail. Irish Ferries and Stena Line offer combination tickets from Holyhead in Wales to Dublin from a number of cities in the UK & Scotland.

From Dublin port take Dublin Bus (53/27/151) to the city centre to Eden Quay where you can take a Dublin Coach bus to the University or Limerick City centre.

For those travelling by Rail and Sail, some are organising a live coding train trip from UK to Limerick to live stream their performance while traveling. Follow and join the discussion
