Hotel Information

Please note: Pricing taken from the Bord Fáilte Tourism site.

We are hoping to negotiate special weekend rates with some of the hotels. Watch this space for updates.

There is a multitude of places to stay in Dun Laoire. This is partly because the town is a major ferry port town and also because the tourist trade in the area is most favourable.

Royal Marine Hotel (4 Star Hotel)
royalmarine.jpg (20237 bytes)The most obvious place to stay is at the convention Hotel itself, the Royal Marine Hotel. However, it is a 4 Star Hotel and therefore is the most expensive, but con-goers who have stayed in the Royal Marine before will tell you that it's worth the cost.
