    Getting to the venue

    As always, Conclave 2011 is being held at the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel, just opposite the University of Limerick on the Dublin Road.

    If you're travelling by bus from Dublin to Limerick (Bus √Čireann Route 12) you'll be able to stop right outside the University and Conclave's less than a minute's walk away. That way you won't have to go all the way into the Limerick City Bust Station and then make your way back out again, cutting your journey time by at least 30 minutes!

    Here's a map of the location, with directions from Limerick Bus Station for reference:
