The Convention Centre Dublin 

Welcome to Ireland's world-class conference venue - right on your doorstep!

The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) was developed to provide a world-class conference venue in the heart of Ireland’s capital city. Located just 15 minutes from the airport in Dublin’s Docklands, the finance and technology hub of the city, The CCD is ideally positioned to entice the international business tourism market.

Since opening in 2010, The CCD has established an international reputation for hosting and delivering world-class events. So far, we have received 50 industry awards, including 'World’s Leading Meetings & Conference Centre 2019 and 2017’ and 'Europe's Leading Meetings & Conference Centre 2019, 2018 and 2017' at the annual World Travel Awards.

In 2021, The CCD achieved a Gold status, becoming only the third venue in the world to achieve the highest-level accreditation by the World Obesity Federation’s Healthy Venues Award programme.

Our clients include a prestigious range of international associations and corporations, as well as Ireland's best brands and organisations. We can facilitate a variety of events, from intimate meetings to large conferences, banquets and entertainment events. International events attract international delegates and these business tourists spend money on hotels, taxis, dining out, entertainment, shopping, cultural experiences and tourist attractions which help to generate significant revenue for the Irish economy.

Our online event platform and virtual event studio provides clients with the option to host their event in either virtual or hybrid format.

The CCD is an iconic building on the Dublin skyline, designed by the late award-winning Irish architect Kevin Roche. The entire venue is finished to the highest specifications and incorporates spectacular technology throughout. Its stunning glass-fronted atrium gives visitors panoramic views of the River Liffey, Dublin city centre and the Wicklow mountains.
