AT Congress 2015 offers something that no recent congress has offered: the possibility of staying on the Congress Campus so that you can share the week with fellow colleagues and friends. We hope to have a real community feel to the event. We have secured a competitive rate for the accommodation, which includes breakfast, so staying on campus is a very attractive option. However, we do want you to feel you have a variety of choices and so have included details of hotels, hostels, guest houses and camping facilities in the area.
A note for those staying on campus: Breakfast is simple (toast, packaged cereals, fruit juice and fruit), and will be waiting for you each morning in your apartment. If you want anything more (eg oatmeal, muesli, eggs and so on), you can buy these from the campus shop, store them in your refridgerator, and use the cooking facilities in your apartment.
on site campus accommodation
On site campus accommodation is set in the unique atmosphere of the University of Limerick. The University campus, set in 300 acres of beautiful riverside parkland, provides a relaxed, convenient, scenic and self-contained environment for delegates during their stay. This high standard accommodation is provided in en-suite apartments near the banks of the River Shannon.
Accommodation on-site consists of 6 bedroom apartments (maximum occupancy 6 people). Each apartment has 6 rooms with double beds in each and a shared, comfortable living room and kitchen with cable television and card phones.
Couples, friends or groups who wish to stay in the same 6-bed apartment on-site will need to state the names of those they wish to share with when booking, as each person has to register individually - please see our FAQ.
A very limited number of private apartments are also available for couples: please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details, and request this when registering online.
Bed linen and towels are supplied and there is a daily cleaning service. The village has free adjacent parking.
Wired internet access is provided in the bedrooms for guests and wireless internet access is available at various convenient locations throughout the University campus.
The village has a reception, where delegates are welcomed on their arrival to the campus. You will be able to reserve this 'on campus' accommodation at the time of registration.
You can arrange to stay extra nights before or after the Congress. Please contact UL directly to arrange this, by emailing email@example.com. The fee per extra night at the University is €50.
Cappavilla Village and Dromroe Village (circled in the map below) have been reserved for the Congress.
