Venue - Dublin Castle

The 2019 EAC Annual Meeting was held at the Hibernia Conference Centre, Dublin Castle, in the heart of the city centre. It is one of Dublin’s most historic properties, which from 1204 until 1922 was the seat of English, and later British rule in Ireland. Built on top of earlier Viking settlement, the castle was gutted by fire in the 17th century after which it was rebuilt as a Georgian palace. It is managed by the Irish Government’s Office of Public Works.
