Sociolinguistics Summer School 5

Start here

Coming to SSS5? Here is a list of suggested accommodation:

Recommended accommodation SSS5

Note: Dublin is a very popular tourist destination in Summer. Accommodation is in high demand and unfortunately special offers are few and far between at that time of year. Please book as soon as possible.

In addition, Garth Brooks is playing five concerts in Dublin from the 25th to the 29th July and thus accommodation is busier than usual on those dates. If you want to save money, try and arrive on Monday 28th July instead of Sunday 27th July- SSS5 will not start until the afternoon on that day. This will at least save you one night of the Garth Brooks hotel rate!

If you are looking to team together and share rooms, like our Facebook page ‘SSS5 bulletin board’ to get in contact with other participants!
