If you are considering staying at the venue you need to call             +353 1 8275600       and quote the booking reference 552455. This will ensure you get one of the reserved rooms for the EBA and the preferential rate agreed with the hotel. Bookings can be made via the web site but you cannot be guaranteed getting the same preferential rate, and the room booked will not come from the reserved allocation. The costs negotiated are €35 for bed & breakfast per person sharing, based on two individuals sharing a room. A single room supplement will be charged otherwise. The check-in time for the hotel is 15:00 and the check-out time is 12:00.
