Please note that the only feasible travel option to get to the conference location is to fly into Dublin Airport. Cork Airport has no direct public transport link to Dungarvan. Waterford Airport does not have any international flights.

DIAS will provide a bus free of charge to bring delegates from Dublin Airport to Dungarvan on the Sunday afternoon. The bus will leave Dublin Airport at 4:00pm on Sunday 18th August and it will then stop enroute at DIAS (10 Burlington Road, Dublin 4) leaving DIAS at approximately 4:45pm/5:00pm. Anyone arriving in Dublin before Sunday will be able to get this bus from DIAS on Sunday.  The bus will return to Dublin on Saturday 24th August. Return time to be confirmed.


In the event that you miss the DIAS bus, you will have to make your own travel arrangements to Dungarvan and cover the cost of this yourself including any additional accommodation costs. There is a public express coach from Dublin Airport to Waterford. However, the latest bus with a connection to Dungarvan leaves Dublin Airport at 5:00pm (timetable). Buses after that time only go as far as Waterford. If you are on a late flight, the options are:

(1) travel to Waterford on the public express coach. (Please contact us if this situation arises and we will advise on arrangements) (Waterford City Bus Station location)


(2)  stay in a hotel near Dublin Airport overnight and take the public express coach to Dungarvan the next morning.
