End of Life Ireland in collaboration with Irish Doctors supporting MAiD is pleased to be hosting the World Federation of Right to Die Societies International Conference in Ireland Friday and Saturday 20th and 21st September 2024.
This event, bringing international delegates and local attendees together, provides an opportunity for networking, education and information sharing from across the globe. From countries who have legislation, those who are conducting legislative reviews and carrying out extensive research into how legislation is working to countries who like Ireland, are moving closer to legislating.

Prior to this on Thursday 19th September 2024, The WFRtDS will hold its business meeting, to which delegates of the two day conference are welcome to attend (at no additional cost) provided they have registered when purchasing their main conference tickets.
The conference will be hosted at the beautiful Royal Marine Hotel in the seaside town of Dun Laoghaire, only a short train ride from Dublin City Centre.

In brief, if attending the full four days, here’s the broad outline:
We have secured Special Conference Rates at the Royal Marine Hotel.
Temple Bar in Dublin is just a short train ride away from the Conference centre.
Set on the edge of Dublin Bay, Dun Laoghaire is a beautful location
End of Life Ireland is looking forward to welcoming you to our beautiful capital of Dublin, and the southern suburb of Dun Laoghaire where the Conference will be held.
The conference will be hosted at the beautiful Royal Marine Hotel in the seaside town of Dun Laoghaire only a short train ride from Dublin City Centre.
But we hope you will take time before and after the Conference to enjoy the coastal area as well as the Big City
The seaside resort of Dún Laoghaire welcomes you with green spaces and palm trees. Once a quiet fishing village, now it’s a busy port town known for activities on the water. Join Dublin Under Sail to visit the actual spot where Brian Ború took on the Vikings, or enjoy epic views and wildlife watching with Dublin Bay Cruises. You can learn more about Dún Laoghaire’s oceangoing history at the National Maritime Museum of Ireland and marvel at the artefacts. The standout is an impressive ten-tonne optic, a giant light formerly in use at the Baily Lighthouse in Howth.
The two harbour piers are perfect for a stroll with an ice cream in hand. Open a window at bedtime and let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.
