Family and Partner Friendly

We know that as much as you might want to go to a great conference, a two-day weekend is a long time away from your partner or kids if they’re not interested in WordPress. That’s why we’ve worked hard to make WordCamp Ireland partner and kid friendly.

A Welcoming Conference

You are welcome to bring your other half and your mini-mes to registration and to morning and afternoon breakout sessions. They are also welcome to join you for lunch on both days; just purchase extra lunch vouchers as you’ll need to present all tickets at the buffet. (Children under 12 eat free and do not require a lunch ticket.)

A Welcoming Venue

With the exception of the public bars, WordCamp is taking over the completely fabulous Langton House Hotel. Langton’s is right in the city centre, so even if you arrive by train there is loads to keep you occupied for the weekend

We also have a dedicated, supervised playroom for children with a wide range of activities from blocks to painting to soft play. Our schedule includes frequent breaks so you can reconnect with your children or only attend the sessions you want to see most.

A Welcoming City

Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s most popular tourism destinations, with plenty to see and do.
