Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth, Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland and also the highest ranked. Its beautiful campus and central city centre location makes it a popular choice with students as well as visitors to Dublin. Famous literary alumni include Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker and Samuel Beckett.

The School of Computer Science and Statistics is one of the largest Schools in the University with a community of 700 undergraduates, 480 postgraduates and in excess of 150 members of staff. It is ranked #1 in Ireland, in the top 25 in Europe, and in the top 100 worldwide.


This year, the University and our Conference Partners have both advised us that block-booking hotels in Dublin will result in higher rates than if conference attendees book directly with the hotel or through booking sites.

The JCSG organizers have instead decided to recommend a few different hotels within walking distance of the conference venue. If you're attending with a group, another more affordable option could also be Airbnb.

Trinity City Hotel

Four Stars, €216 per night (two occupants)

Right next to Trinity College, Dublin. About five minutes walk from the conference venue and very close to everything Dublin has to offer.
