What about EuroCon (Shamrokon) 2014?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I never hang around on this side of the board because I never had the chance to go to a con, but I just recently moved in to the UK so... I'm not too sure you guys care for newbies, but just in case, I'll try to attend both Loncon and this one!

we love fresh victims new people.



Don't forget to make yourself known to people when you arrive. And be warned some of us are known to give hugs without warning.

I'll arrive in Dublin by ferry on 21st August, around 14:00.



Anyone want to hang out or possibly go to the museum of archaeology with me? :)

Dublin has a museum of archeology? Who knew?

Will be working but can go for coffee or drinks most evenings if you like.

Not that it does a whole lot of good in the above cases but I work in the airport, so happy to meet people if they arrive through that port. Otherwise, I'll see you in the evening/weekend. :)

I'll leave through the airport, in case you have any time to hang around ;)

I'd be up for that, The National Museum of Ireland ( Archaeology Museum) is on Kildare street and opens till 5pm, Is your Ferry arriving at Dublin Port or Dun Laoghaire Habour?

Great :)



I'll arrive at Dublin Port, which shouldn't be too far from the hotel if the map isn't misleading.

The con hotel, Hilton something-or-other. I'll probably take a taxi there.

This is about the only logistic for me that I haven't yet set. Anyone know if the taxis accept a visa card? It has the chip and I called so the bank noted my account to not intercept transactions in Ireland.

I think some do but I wouldn't want to rely on it.

They normally make the best ones!

Best idea, probably. If you truly get stuck, there seems to be a bus that runs once an hour, on the hour, from the ferry port to the city centre proper (No 53, gets you to Connolly Station), where you can perhaps get a taxi more easily. The drivers should know when the ferries arrive, though, so you should be fine.

Ser Knight, as Pod says, I wouldn't rely on a taxi driver taking a card. I would try to have cash, and -- if at all possible -- make change on arrival. Last I looked, taxi drivers are not legally obliged to carry change for a 50-euro note, even though many will.

Neal, !!! Awesome. :)

Thanks to you and Pod for the helpful advice!
