the convention centre dublin

The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) is Ireland's world-class, purpose-built international conference and event venue.

Located in Spencer Dock, on the banks of the River Liffey, The CCD sits at the heart of Dublin's transport hub with excellent road, rail and bus connections as well as on-site car parking and nearby Dublin Bike stations.

How to get here

Easily accessible by foot, rail, car, bus or bike


Pearse Street and Tara Street DART stations are both located about 10 minutes walk from The CCD.


The Luas Red Line runs directly behind The CCD, linking Connolly and Heuston rail stations. Spencer Dock station, located right behind The CCD, is just a one-minute walk to the main entrance.


Dublin Bus offers a high frequency, accessible and easy-to-use service from all over Dublin City Centre and the surrounding areas. You can reach The CCD on foot from O'Connell Bridge in approximately 10 minutes.


There are two stations located in the Docklands area beside The CCD:
Custom House Quay - Northside beside the Sean O'Casey Bridge
Pearse Street - Southside near Pearse Street Train Station


The CCD is easily accessible by road, given its city centre location and proximity to Ireland's motorway network. It is situated next to the Samuel Beckett Bridge, which spans the River Liffey, aiding access between the North and South of the city.

The CCD has its own underground carpark. The rate is €3.50 per hour or €20 for the full day. Opening times 07:00-24:00. There are also spaces nearby in local car parks, as well as considerable on-street 'pay and display' parking on North Wall Quay and adjoining roads.
