The conference will take place from Thursday afternoon 13th September to Saturday morning 15th September 2012 and is hosted by the Study of Religions Department, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland. There is no conference fee but delegates will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation.

The UCC conferencing website http://www.ucc.ie/en/conferencing/accommodation/ lists numerous local hotels, B&B (Bed and Breakfast), self-catering and other forms of accommodation very close by the University (i.e. within 5-10 mins walk from the conference venue). Please contact the accommodation directly or consult their websites for latest rates.
There are currently no direct flights between Dublin and Cork. If flying into Cork from outside Europe, travel via London, Amsterdam etc. Cork airport is small and very easy to use. UCC and nearby accommodations are 15 – 20 mins by taxi from the airport, taxi fare approx. 15 euro. Alternatively, take the hourly airport bus to Cork city centre and walk 10 – 15 mins to UCC.
Long-haul flights to Dublin are often considerably cheaper than flights to Cork, but Cork is 300km from Dublin. There is an “Aircoach” (express bus) from Dublin airport to Cork city centre every hour from 06.25 am throughout the day until 00.25 am. The journey takes 3.5 hours at a fare (adult return) of 28 euro. http://www.aircoach.ie/table.routes.cork.php
