Octocon 2018 will take place on the 19th to the 21st of October in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Dublin 15.
Our new venue, the Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown is 12 kilometres from Dublin city centre, served by 14 bus routes.
The 39a bus is the most direct and leaves from Aston Quay in Dublin city centre, all of the buses on this route are wheelchair accessible. The Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown is also just off the M50 motorway, it is approximately 15 minutes by car from Dublin Airport.
It is a 4-star hotel, situated as part of the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre complex.
Octocon 2018 will be held in the 1st-floor conferencing area.
The Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown is a very modern hotel, and its conferencing area is bigger, so this allows us to grow Octocon. We are very excited to be hosting the Golden Blasters projected onto a 12 foot screen!
