Meetings in Google country
A humorous meeting location? Sounds a bit absurd, but in fact I can not think of an adjective that would better describe the special atmosphere of the Irish capital. Of course, as I already reported last year, there are classic, professional meeting locations:
For example, the Dublin Convention Center, Ireland's largest conference center with capacity for 4.000 people, not far from Google and Facebook. Or the Maldron, a classic conference hotel located nearby. However, Dublin has thrilled me, above all, with its more original locations and exciting range of activities.
Location of U2
For example, the Clarence Hotel, which belongs to U2. It is centrally located near the well-known Temple Bar on the River Liffey and offers a fantastic view over Dublin on the upper floors. It has 51 rooms in seven room categories and a penthouse with a fantastic terrace, which can be divided into two suites - they are also suitable for very small group meetings up to eight people.
In addition, the gallery of the Penthouse is available for meetings up to 30 persons. However, the main meeting room is the Clarence Suite on the fourth floor overlooking the Liffey, which can be divided into two or three rooms. It provides standing space for up to 120 persons and sitting depending on the seating maximum 80.
Formerly the best hotel in the city
The room rates are between 129,00 Euro and 2800.00 Euro for a penthouse, depending on the utilization, the prices for meetings have to be arranged individually.
At its reopening 1996 boutique hotel was the best house in the city, meanwhile, not only does the furniture altogether a little old-fashioned, but the hotel is in some places also in need of renovation. Only next year, the windows are to be double glazed, which is why it is quite loud so far. Also, the food is not just impressive culinary delights and is also quite spartan. The employees, however, see these impressions calm, that can be found charmingly funny - or indifferent, depending on the perspective.
Creativity with Gaelic Football
I chose the first one, because on the whole Dublin impressed me above all with its creativity and originality: First and foremost, there is certainly the name Croke Park, Ireland's biggest stadium for the local national sports Hurling and Gaelic Football and thus a unique location worldwide. It offers space for 80.000 people on three floors and also features 87 custom meeting rooms and 5000 square meters of event and exhibition space.
The largest room is the Hogan Suite for up to a maximum of 800 people (sitting), as well as smaller meeting areas for 8 to 80 people. What is exciting is the Players Lounge: Here the players keep up after the match, otherwise it can be rented for 150 persons. From the event venues the game can be partly tracked, but of course places can also be booked in the grandstand. Right next to the stadium is the Croke Park Hotel with 232 rooms and other meeting venues, the history of sports can be admired at the GAA Museum.
