    Irishdolphins conference venue

The conference will be held at the Skellig Hotel in Dingle. This has nothing to do with the Skellig islands and you cannot even see them from here!

Nevertheless, with magnificent views of Dingle Harbour where Fungie lives, a spacious and self-contained conference suite and easy access to the town centre it is perfect for our needs.

Further information about the Skellig Hotel can be found at their website

If tempted to book accommodation here, ask us first about our special conference room rates.  For details, see the accommodation page.

To find the Skellig Hotel: approaching Dingle from the east, take a left turn just 100m before the roundabout, after a petrol station on the left and opposite a large building site on the right. (From town, head out on the main road to Tralee then take the second right turn, clearly signposted for the hotel.) Proceed about 500m to the end of this road and the Skellig is on the right.

Wireless internet access is provided for our use during the conference period, so you're welcome to bring laptops and check e-mails etc during the breaks and after the formal sessions. The hotel has full bar and restaurant facilities and you can get snacks and meals on the premises, walk into town for lunch or bring sandwiches and sit out on the terrace, as you please.

Skellig Hotel Conference room is dedicated to giving accurate information about 'friendly' or sociable wild dolphins (and whales) around the coastal waters of Ireland - i.e., those cetaceans who from time to time choose to interact with humans.. Dolphins include Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, Dony and Dusty.
