TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN
9th Biennial Conference on Baroque Music
The college is situated in
the heart of Dublin, a lively yet historic capital city which has plenty
of attractions old and new and from which one can travel easily into beautiful
and often unspoilt rural areas.
Location within Dublin
College is the sole constituent college of the University of Dublin,
founded in 1592. At present there are around 12,000 students and 1,200
staff, and they make up what is probably Ireland's most cosmopolitan community.
A number of associated events will be held in historic
venues elsewhere in Dublin, but all within a few minutes walk of the
|All the conference events will take place on the main campus, and many
of them in or adjacent to the School of Music's premises, which are in
the impressive 18th-century Front Square of College.
Meals and Drinks
Breakfast, lunch and tea/coffee breaks will be available. Evening meals
will not be provided within College, but there is no shortage of places
to eat out nearby, from the cheap and cheerful to the expensive and plush,
and from traditional Irish to Oriental.
The Conference Dinner will be held
on Friday night, in the fine, wood-panelled Dining Hall of TCD.
Concerts and Venues
One concert will be held in TCD's 19th century Chapel and a public address
and historic liturgy will take place in St
Patrick's Cathedral. This will be a public event, and conference delegates
will be allocated the best seats. Look at some of the fine collection of

Delegates are advised that it will not be possible to park cars on the
campus of Trinity College during the conference. Anyone staying in rooms
on the campus may use a car park nearby, which charges TCD a preferential
rate of £IR8 per day. At weekends, delegates staying in rooms on
campus will be able to park on campus.
