Derry Guildhall is one of the most striking buildings within the walled city, a mighty gothic structure constructed in 1887 and exquisitely renovated by Derry and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) in 2013. We are very grateful to our sponsors and venue hosts DCSDC, who have invited us to use this wonderful building.

Due to the recent, award winning, restoration works, the Guildhall has state of the art conference facilities and is fully accessible (including a lift to all floors). We will also be hosting our Conference Dinner here on the evening of Monday 18th November. To learn more about the venue and accessibility here


Getting to Derry is very straightforward with bus and rail links direct to the city centre, Derry Airport is only 20 minutes from the city centre and Belfast has two airports less than two hours away.

If you will be flying to or from Belfast Airport (International or City) please let us know when completing your booking form, as with enough demand we may arrange private transport to Derry.
