Conference Testimonials

Marian Malone Memorial Conference

" I would like to highly commend the Royal Marine Hotel for hosting our Medical Conference for 6 days in May 2017. Our delegates from all over the world from as far away as New Zealand and South America really enjoyed their stay and thought it was a such a great venue to have our Conference, particularly as it was beside the sea with the great amenity of Dun Laoghaire piers for a relaxing stroll on its doorstep in between lectures, and such easy access to Dublin City on the local DART suburban train. An added bonus for our international delegates who mostly arrived by air is the fact that the Aircoach ( comes direct from Dublin Airport to the Hotel. 

The Conference facilities which we used were in the Martello Room which was excellent for our purposes with classroom lay out and water and writing pads provided by the Hotel. We used the Laurels Room for our meals which was located adjacent to our conference facility and excellent variety of meals were provided every day. Our delegates thought the meals provided were very good and were very tempted with the desserts! Management and all staff were very helpful at all times especially first thing in the morning with the Audio Visual. I think Dun Laoghaire and the Royal Marine Hotel were a great venue and many commented that it was such a nice place to spend a Conference rather than in the centre of a city.

Thank you again for looking after us so well - it certainly made my role easier as the local organiser, and we would certainly recommend the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire as a Conference venue”

Valeo Foods

“We at Valeo Foods had the pleasure of holding our Annual Sales Conference here recently. What a location looking out over Dublin Bay, the Hill of Howth and the iconic Dunlaoghaire piers. It’s a wonderful mix of Old World Charm with New World sophistication. All our needs were expertly catered for from the very professional team and helpful staff. No ask was too big or too small. A must for events that call for proximity to the Capital without being in the heart of it”

Cheers and thanks.

Annual Congress of Psychology Students in Ireland

The 35th Annual Congress of Psychology Students in Ireland was partially hosted in the Royal Marine Hotel for our evening functions.

We had over 350 delegates in the hotel for the two day event in which we received spectacular service during the planning stages of our event until our last delegate left the hotel.

I would not hesitate in recommending the hotel for any conference as the staff have great advice and support during planning and hosting any event."
