Venue

ECIR 2023 will take place in the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Dublin city centre. The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is within walking distance of top city landmarks such as Trinity College, Dublin Castle, ChristChurch, St.Patricks Cathedral, The Guinness Storehouse and the famous Grafton Street shopping district and Temple Bar, the beating heart of Dublin's nightlife.

A wide variety of theatres, restaurants and night clubs are also just a few minutes walk away. The hotel has a large and private conference area, with excellent and well equipped facilities.

For ECIR, the conference venue will be entirely reserved for ECIR delegates, including access to a private meeting cafe (the O bar) with seating for up to forty conference attendees to engage in discussion. For the conference poster session reception, we will (weather depending) use the Rooftop Terrace Garden.
