Con Admission

The entry price to the con is €10.00 for the weekend.
Registration for each event at the con is an additional €2.00, except for the wargaming tournaments which are included in the entry price.

Under 12s are admitted free, but must be supervised at all times.

Entry into the Saturday night Pub Quiz is €2.00 a head, with all proceeds going to Crumlin Children's Hospital.

Another pertinent question is where you can stay while at the con.

The campus accomodation offers nice rooms at a reasonable price. Last year we had some complaints from the campus office so try to behave yourself if you're staying there.

If you're feeling a bit more opulent the Glenroyal Hotel is just down the road.

There are also a few B&Bs in Maynooth if that's more to you're liking, you can find links here, here and here.

Of course you could rely on your looks to win you a free bed for the night but in these recessionary times it really is a buyers market.


Some of you may be asking the not insignificant question of how to actually get to Dominicon.

Well we're on in the John Hume building on the north campus of NUI Maynooth.

A fairly comprehensive account of how to get to NUIM can be found here

The John Hume building is number 15 on this map, very easy to find from the footbridge at 24.

And if you'd rather see what it actually looks like, go here.

Charity Calendars on Sale at Dominicon

In a joint effort to raise money for Crumlin Childrens Hospital and to show people that Gamers aren't all overweight, unattractive, socially stunted men, one photographer and twelve of the most attractive irish gamer girls have come together in one calendar for 2010.
The Bad Girls of Irish Gaming 2010 debuted at Gaelcon and is going to continue it's drive to do some good at Dominicon and will be on sale for €15 both Saturday and Sunday with the proceeds going were they are badly needed, to the kids.
So if you're looking for an original gift for christmas or just something different to brighten up your wall for the coming year while helping those who need it, pick one up at Dominicon.

Please, think of the younglings.
