Áras na Mac Léinn and the College Bar are located on University Rd, across from Tesco Express & UCHG Hospital. When coming from Eire Square, cross the bridge and turn right at the NUI Galway University Rd Entrance (Beside Security office). Continue walking and follow the signs to Áras na Mac Léinn (on your right hand side when you walk in the main entrance, you will see the Quad on your left).

After the conference we will be heading to Monroe’s Tavern, so it would be great if you could join us.
