The Arts in Society Conference is pleased to offer a room block at The Ardilaun Hotel.

Ardilaun, or Glenarde House as it was then known, was built around 1840 as a townhouse for the Persse Family, who had large estates in South Galway. The mansion was purchased in 1961 by Mr. & Mrs. Patrick D. Ryan and was converted into a four-star hotel. Since then, the mansion has undergone exstensive development and expansion while still mantaining the original character of the old mansion as much as possible. Nestled in a secluded setting in leafy Taylor’s Hill just 1 km from Galway City and Galway Bay, Salthill, hotel guests may stroll around the property's lush gardens or enjoy open fires and spacious lounges indoors.

The conference venue, NUI Galway, is located about 2.1 km (1.3 miles) from the hotel and is accessible by public bus or car/taxi. Click to view map.
