Join a pre-conference tour
Consider feeling the fresh breeze from the boat as you join the pre-conference tour to nearby Howth; discover the Book of Kells with a master storycrafter at Trinity College Dublin; or visit the urban farm that is Airfield Estate. Whatever you might choose, all three of our pre-conference tours promise to be spectacular ways to explore some of the best parts of Dublin. Sign up for a pre-tour when you register, then join in before first sessions officially kick off on Wednesday, April 20.
Venture out to Ireland’s many other amenities
Come early, stay late, do whatever you please — we highly encourage you to take some time before or after the conference to discover castles and (golf) courses; sweeping coastlines and bracing hikes; or ending evenings with your pick of distilleries and dining establishments to delight in.
You’ve also got Galway to the west, Kerry and Cork to the South, Belfast to the North — all reachable by train, with a journey that will take you through rollicking green fields, with plenty of smaller towns and villages in between for those who prefer the self-driven route. If you want to venture further than Dublin before or after Global Conference, Ireland truly is yours to explore.
New sounds abound
Music. Dancing. Music and Dancing. These are core to a culture that goes back a millennia. You will find yourself smiling and moving from your first arrival until your final (sad!) departure day. There will be plenty of live entertainment packed into our evening events (stay tuned for a preview closer to Global Conference!) but every corner holds a new tune waiting to be carried.
Pause for a period
Stay a day or two post-event, taking time on your own to poke around local galleries and museums such as EPIC — where you will learn that indeed, we are all Irish. Or try the Little Museum of Dublin, the Phoenix Park, Windmill Lane Recording Studios, just get lost in a quaint alley — after all, didn’t a famous Dubliner once sing something about streets having no name? (Though we hear he’s more likely to be found around the Dublin suburb of Dalkey these days)
