In contrast to many other European areas where industrialisation and dense settlement patterns have taken their toll, Ireland boasts a wealth of well-preserved Quaternary features. Almost all of the sites can be reached within a few hours from Dublin and the Dublin Convention Centre. This makes them ideal for Mid-Congress trips.

A little further afield but still within easy reach by road and air are fabulous coastal and inland sites in Ireland, Scotland, England and even in the Netherlands. We would love to travel with you to these either before or after the Congress. The lists below will give you a taste of what is possible.
