02 Nov Web Summit 2015


The Web Summit comes to Dublin City from Tuesday 3rd to Thursday 5th of November. The summit takes place in various spots around the city but the main conference centre is in the RDS.


You’ll find the RDS in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, between The InterContinental Dublin and Herbert Park on the Merrion Rd.

Over 30, 000 people are expected to attend the Summit over the course of the three days. Heavy traffic is likely through Ballsbridge and Sandymount as well as on Anglesea Rd, Simmonscourt Rd, Shelbourne Rd and Pembroke Rd. However, the longest delays are likely to be on Merrion Rd.

Public Transport

The RDS is serviced by a number of Dublin Bus routes. Numbers 4, 5, 7, 7a and 8 all stop outside the venue on Merrion Rd and these bus services can all be availed of on Nassau Street outside Trinity College. The RDS is also very close to both Sandymount and Lansdowne Rd DART stations.

If you’re coming from the Dublin Airport direction, Aircoach runs on the half-hour, every hour, and has a drop-off point right beside the RDS. You’ll use Route 702: Dublin Airport to Greystones/Bray, and tickets are €8.50 for a single trip and €14 for a return journey. You can buy your tickets online at or at the airport. There is also a taxi rank at the airport.
