Location, Transport and Accommodation for ALM 23

Location and Activities

Historic Maynooth University is just 40 minutes from both Dublin International Airport and Dublin City Centre. Maps are available from the Maynooth University website.

Maynooth is Ireland’s only university town and is full of activity. It has a range of restaurants and high quality food is also available in the many public bars. Tours of Maynooth University campus and ‎Maynooth Castle are highly recommended (both included in the conference package).

Maynooth is also at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East, and in addition to its close proximity to Dublin, it is close to a number of sites of significant historical interest, e.g. Carton Estate (just outside Maynooth Town)‎, Newgrange Megalithic Tombs (which, at over 5000 years old, are older than the Egyptian Pyramids and less than an hour away from Maynooth by car) and the Hill of Tara where many of the ancient rulers of Ireland were coronated is about 30 minutes away by car.


Maynooth University is very well served by public transport, and a range of ‎travel options are available.


Details on accommodation in and around Maynooth are available. It is also possible to stay in Dublin and commute but we recommend that delegates who chose to do so check their transport options.
