About The Venue

This Forum will be held over two days with participants attending in-person and virtually at Farmleigh House.

This historic mansion sits on an estate of seventy-eight acres situated to the north-west of Dublin’s Phoenix Park and serves as the official Irish State guest house for visiting dignitaries and guests of the nation.

Home to the Guinness family for generations, Farmleigh remains a unique representation of its heyday, the Edwardian period, and houses important artworks and furnishings, as well as the Benjamin Iveagh collection of rare books, bindings, and manuscripts which is held in the Library. The extensive pleasure grounds feature walled and sunken gardens and scenic lakeside walks, tastefully influenced by the Guinness family.

Farmleigh is accessed via the Phoenix Park from White’s Road with free parking on site. Please note that there is approximately a five-minute walk from the car park to the House. Further access details can be found here.
