Hotel rooms

The Conference reserved a block of rooms, with varying numbers available each night based on our expected turnout. Please use the CCC website (www.celtic-connections.org) to link to the hotel website, or for their phone number.

If you hear that the block is full for one or more nights of your desired stay, please contact Conference@irishgenealogical.org as soon as possible, and we will check to see if the block can be expanded.

Please make your reservation under the Celtic Connections Conference block.
