An enjoyable Dublin experience

I’m still in Dublin following yesterday’s PRII conference at which I spoke about PR and social media.

I gather all the presentations will soon be online at the PRII website, I guess sometime next week.

It was a terrific event. The venue was the ballroom at the Conrad Hotel, a pretty big room. It was packed; I’d say there were at least 150 people representing the PR business in Ireland, agency and client sides.

I’ll have a post with some thoughts about the conference once I’m back in the UK. Loads of photos, too, which I’ll upload to Flickr.

We’ve been staying at Stauntons on The Green, a guesthouse-type hotel. Very comfortable and a place I’d definitely come back to. Free wifi, too, although the signal doesn’t reach to the bedrooms so I’ve been using the 3 mobile broadband modem which the folk at 3mobilebuzz enabled to work for me here in Ireland. Thanks again, guys.

Today has been one of relative relaxation. Laura and I spent the morning meandering around the centre of Dublin, dodging a rain shower here and there. Planning to take one of the 90-minute sightseeing bus tours tomorrow before heading back to the UK.

Bernie Goldbach has been a tremendous host, showing us the evening sights around the Temple Bar area on Thursday evening. He was at the conference yesterday with a variety of gadgets to record audio and video.

So, a wholly enjoyable experience on this trip to Dublin, my first time back here for any length of time in about 12 years.

Next – the meetup at 4.30pm today.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope the meeetup today went well. Bernie told me about it and i was hoping to make it up ther but reality crept in and dealt a fatal blow to my plans. Perhaps I’ll catch you another time somewhere.

    You too, Joe. We’ll be talking again soon.

    Anton, sorry you couldn’t make it. That darned reality! It was a great evening. I’ll have a post up when I get home plus photos on Flickr. And I’m sure others who were there will have their pics up somewhere too.
