Practical Information in DublinEdit This
Dublin, as well as almost all of Ireland, has made advances in returning Irish as the official language of Ireland once again. However this is mainly just for ceremonial purposes: only school children and those from the west of Ireland actually speak Irish
Legally all signs in the Reoublic of Ireland should be in bilingual form.
English is spoken and understood by all of the population. Note: English is actually spoken better in Dublin than in London by anybody born here since 1850. The only people who can't speak English to you are the recent new Irish who have come to us from Eastern Europe etc...
Located minutes from Dublin city centre and surrounded by top hotels, the Irish International Convention and Exhibition Centre at the RDS comprises a 42 acre complex with over 20,000 square metres conference and exhibition space.

Dublin Airport is about 12km north from the city center. A ride to the city center in a taxicab will cost you about €20.00. The bus service will cost you €1.70, unless you use the special airport shuttle, which is slightly more expensive (€6.00) but saves you a quarter of an hour on a trip of about 45 minutes.
