Dublin is a warm and welcoming city, with a world-class job market, stunning surroundings, and friendly inhabitants. It is a major global hub for pharmaceutical and medical technology, software and ICT and export and trade industries. Many financial services firms are headquartered in this pulsing city. The Trinity campus sits at the heart of the city, surrounded by museums, seats of government, theatres, and global corporations. It is home to the magnificent Old Library, which brings visitors back to the 18th century, and the Book of Kells, a 9th-century gospel manuscript famous throughout the world. We look forward to giving you all a warm welcome at EURAM 2023.
VISITING THE CITY

In the historic compact city there are is lots to do and see, and delegates will love the rich selection of galleries, national museums which have free entry, restaurants, pubs and shops. Enjoy a walking tour of the city’s glorious Viking origins or one of the many literary pub crawls. If walking isn’t for you, get yourself some wheels and see Dublin in style. Hop on a Dublin Bike and whizz around the city’s hotspots. If you prefer there are plenty of bike tour providers available across the city.

CONQUER THE COAST
With so much to do in the City Centre, it is easy to forget that Dublin is a city by the sea and Dublin Bay is an adventurer’s paradise. Roll with the waves in a kayak in Dalkey and if you are feeling brave, why not take a dip in the famous Forty Foot in nearby Sandycove. Try out kitesurfing in Clontarf or a hike of the Hill of Howth to soak up amazing views of Bull Island and Dublin’s coastline before heading to the village for some of the freshest seafood in Dublin.
