Your Essential Guide to the Dublin Web Summit
When and where does The Web Summit take place?
The Dublin Web Summit takes place at the RDS (Royal Dublin Society) in the Ballsbridge area of Dublin from November 04.06.2014.
How close is the RDS to downtown Dublin?
The RDS is 3.5km (approx. 1.8 miles) from O’ Connell Street.
How do I get to the RDS from downtown?
Walk: Take your morning exercise and walk to the RDs from your hotel.
Train: The D.A.R.T (sound familiar to those visiting from The Bay Area?) runs from 3 downtown stations to either Landsdowne or Sandymount stations every 10 minutes at peak times.
Taxi: Dublin has more cabs than New York City but you better be prepared to wait for a taxi after the event as everybody leaves the event together.
Car Service: If you are in town for a few days it makes sense to book a car service such as
LfL Chauffeur Services, relax knowing that your airport transfers from Dublin Airport, transportation from your hotel to and from the Summit, dinner and evening event transportation, meetings while in town, or even a tour of the city tailored to your itinerary are all prebooked before you arrive. Choose the chauffeur service that top web companies based in Dublin use with clients including Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, New Relic, and Air B&B.

Are there any good Restaurants and coffee shops close to The Summit?
Ballsbridge is one of Dublin’s best neighbourhoods and has many great places to eat including Roly’s which has a casual café downstairs and one of Dublin’s best restaurants upstairs. (Roly’s serves the best breakfast in Dublin and is just across the street from The Summit.) There is also a Starbucks close by on Shelbourne Road.
What should I not miss seeing while in Dublin?
Dublin has many world famous attractions all close to the city and easily accessible. The Guinness Brewery, Old Jameson Distillery, The Phoenix Park, The Library at Trinity College, St. Patrick’s and Christchurch Cathedrals to name a few, but if you have a couple of hours to spare during your visit, take a trip out along Dublin’s coast line to Howth, this quaint fishing village at the foot of a hill offers magnificent views of the city and is a great place for seafood. Along the way you can visit Malahide and Howth Castles.
If you are a U2 fan why not take in the sights associated with the band 2-3 hours is all that’s required and is a must see for any fan. At LfL chauffeur services we can tailor a tour to fit your schedule while attending the summit, even if you only have a couple of hours to spare you can still get to pack in some sightseeing.
