This year swCork is on in Cork City Hall, which is a pretty amazing venue if we don’t say so ourselves; check out the pictures below. (Imagine pitching up there).

We also have a new approach to mentoring, and we have 4 veteran mentors in residents, (yes, they’ve said they stick around to help for the whole weekend).

First you need to figure out how to get there,

Option 1 is driving, but we know thats not for everybody so we've put together a more comprehensive list.

From Dublin the Aircoach runs from Dublin every hour and can be booked on or from The train is always a great way to travel and can be booked from

If travelling from Limerick then you can take the train, or the bus, which can be planned from bus station to bus station at


We’ve also created a list of places to stay and how far they are from the venue.

1. Oscars hostel- 15 minute walk

2. Bar Bru hostel - 8 minute walk

3. Jurys Inn Cork – 5 minute walk

4. Clarion hotel - 2 minute walk

5. River Lee hotel – 15 minute walk


Let us know if you have any other question and we'll be happy to help direct you in any way possible!
