Fáilte Ireland CEO Visits New Dublin Royal Convention Centre

Paul Kelly, CEO of Fáilte Ireland, recently visited the €20 million Dublin Royal Convention Centre, the Irish capital’s newest meeting and events venue, which is located at the One Le Pole Square development, on Ship Street Great.

Latest Addition To Radisson Blu Royal Hotel

This latest addition to the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin, and Velvære Spa offers a brand-new, purpose-built convention centre that has functional and flexible facilities, from private boardroom meetings to professional conferences of up to 800 people and gala banquets for 550 guests.

‘A Fantastic Addition To Dublin’s Business Tourism Offering’

Speaking during his visit, Kelly said, “The new Dublin Royal Convention Centre will be a fantastic addition to Dublin’s business tourism offering. Investment in world-class business and conference facilities of this scale is vital to ensuring Ireland can continue to compete for and secure major overseas meetings, conferences and events. As each conference delegate is worth up to €1,883 to our economy, the revenue generated by these international events is not only a significant contributor to the Irish business tourism industry, but has an enormous impact on the wider tourism ecosystem, such as attractions and experiences, transport, and food and beverage.”
