Why Dublin?

Dublin is a small and compact city, with a great transport infrastructure, making it easy to get around and meaning nothing is ever too far away. Combining a solid reputation for education and innovation, with great accessibility, it is no coincidence that Dublin is now the European headquarters of many of the world’s leading corporations, and a centre for academic research and innovation. In recent years, the city has established an enviable reputation as an incubator for start-ups and Europe’s hotbed of innovation.

Yet, Dublin has not forgotten its roots and is steeped in a rich cultural heritage that begs to be explored. All year round, the city is alive with music, theatre of all kinds, art galleries and museums abound, all complemented by an impressive range of restaurants, cafés, bars and shops. Conveniently located at the gateway to Europe, Ireland is easily accessible for UK, US and EMEA visitors. Dublin Airport offers flights to more than 190 destinations in 42 countries, operated by almost 50 airlines, making it the 10th largest airport in the Europe.

June is a wonderful time to visit Dublin, so don’t just come for the show, come for the days before and after too! For further inspiration and information, on what else you might do outside of show hours
