Convention Centre
Dublin, Ireland

Conceived as part of the overall Spencer Dock Development, located on a site adjacent to the Royal Canal between North Wall Quay and Mayor Street, the Convention Centre embodies a well considered program of conference facilities designed to attract the international conference and associated exhibitions market to Dublin.
The Centre is composed of a number of different elements, which can function separately or in concert, to meet a variety of conferencing, exhibitions, and small meeting demands. Together with the two major 18th century buildings on the Liffey, the Four Courts and the Customs House, the Convention Centre promises to have a major presence for the city.
The main attraction of the new Convention Centre is its glass lobby facing the River Liffey. A tilted glass cylinder, 54 meters high and 39 meters in diameter, intersects the granite wall of the south facade, creating a partial parabola. The glass cylinder opens up to the activities inside and makes for a highly visible entrance.


Escalators, elevators, and stairs connect to all levels from the lobby.

The Main Exhibition Hall, located at the ground floor level, can be subdivided into two parts for dual purpose usage. A second Exhibition Hall, similar in size, can be converted into two auditoriums.
A raked floor auditorium, capable of housing up to 2,000 people, is located on the second floor of the complex. The auditorium is a fully equipped hall capable of accommodating many events, from international conferences and meetings to product shows, multi-media presentations, orchestra performances, musical theatre, and opera.
