Croke Park Hotel is located close to all major transport hubs in Dublin and can be easily located from Dublin Airport in about 30 minutes travel time. The public bus from Dublin Airport will drop guests to Drumcondra Road and Croke Park Hotel is located just a 2 minute walk around the corner.
The Dublin Skylon hotel is a 20 minute walk from the Croke Park Conference centre, and is located on the main road to the Dublin airport. It is a 3 star hotel that is part of the Best Western group, and has very affordable rates (€60-100/night).
The Gresham Hotel is a grand old 4 star hotel on Dublin's main boulevard, O'Connell Street. The airport coach stops on the street outside, and Croke Park is a 15 minute walk away. Rooms start at €99/night.
The Best Western Plus Academy Plaza Hotel is located a 15 minute walk from the conference centre, also close to O'Connell Street. Rooms are around €100/night.
If you prefer to be more in the heart of the city centre, Dublin's restaurants and nightlife are concentrated around the Temple Bar and Grafton Street areas near Trinity College Dublin. There are many hotels to choose from that are accessible by bus and taxi from the conference centre (or if you like to stretch your legs, the heart of Temple Bar is only 2.5 km from the Croke Park conference centre).
