Re: Re: Citywest : Mansfield’s giant heap of crap
I’ve always believed that the conference centre should be in the middle of the city centre, be it at the Spencer Dock site or something similar.
I think Mansfield’s monstrosity should be razed to the ground. I think foreign visitors coming to Ireland for conferences who end up waiting an hour trying to exit the M50 at the Red Cow Roundabout en route to Citywest will not be return visitors.
I don’t think they will have a favourable recollection of Ireland.
I would not be against an out-of-town solution per se, something along the lines of a conference village. But it would have to be within the bounds of the M50, on a train/LUAS/DART line and should not be more than twenty minutes from the city centre.
