EuroPython 2022 will be held in Dublin! The capital of the Republic of Ireland, one of Europe’s biggest tech hubs, is a lively city with extraordinarily rich and diverse food, culture, history and art lovers - the number of museums and restaurants can certainly tickle most tastes.
As per EuroPython tradition, we shall walk around, chat, laugh and explore the city together. If you are not the “walking-type”, let the convenient public transportation network work its magic for you!
The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) is the home of EuroPython 2022. It is located at the heart of Dublin near the river, a stone’s throw from the tech cluster in Silicon Docks, and a 10-minute walk from the city centre.The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD)
