Below is some information from Emily Cullen, my colleague at the DHO who 
has been doing a lot of the arrangements for the Council meeting this 
week.  See you in a few days!


Dear TEI Council Members,

We are delighted that you will be joining us in Dublin this week.

Your hotel is centrally located in Dublin's lively cultural quarter of 
Temple Bar http://www.templebarhotel.com/locations-directions. Wifi is 
available in your room free of charge. Please pay the EUR69 per night 
fee on your own and save your receipt for reimbursement along with other 
travel expenses.

*Travel to and from Dublin Airport:*
The Aircoach service, which leaves every fifteen minutes from Dublin 
Airport, stops outside Trinity College on Grafton Street, which is 
roughly a 10 minute walk to your hotel.

The Aircoach service to Dublin Airport stops at various city centre 
locations, such as O'Connell St. and also outside Thomas Pink Shirt Shop 
at the top of Dawson Street (St Stephen's Green end). Allow an hour for 
your journey, though in non-peak hours the journey is significantly 
shorter. For further information see www.aircoach.ie

*Directions to the Royal Irish Academy:*
It takes roughly 15 minutes to walk from your hotel to the Royal Irish 
Academy. The best thing to do is to aim in the direction of College 
Green and Trinity College, then follow the path around Trinity College 
until you reach Nassau St. Next you will take the first turn on your 
right (not Grafton St. but the next street over) up to Dawson St. and 
Academy House is no. 19, which will be on your left in the centre of the 

The Royal Irish Academy website displays a small map which will show you 
the location of Academy House (Dawson st) here:

Your accommodation includes your breakfast, which will be served in the 
dining room at The Temple Bar hotel between 7am and 10am each morning.
