COSAC 2022 COSAC Connect COSAC APAC 2023

Killashee Hotel - Naas, Ireland

Welcome to the home of COSAC – Killashee Hotel...

In October 2002 (our 9th COSAC) Killashee hosted the event for the first time in what has become a close bond between the event and the venue. As a fully-residential conference, we need a venue that understands its vital role in providing atmosphere, quality, warmth and intimacy that goes far beyond simply providing meeting rooms and catering, into a special flexibility to go ‘off-script’ to help us put the “Confer” into “Conference”.

Now, a full twenty years later, the environment created for us by Killashee Hotel is second to none. They play a hands-on role and provide a proactive and positive contribution to the organisation of COSAC with countless little personal touches, that even if individually unnoticed by the untrained eye, accumulate into an unrivalled conference experience.

It is difficult to imagine being able to create such a conducive atmosphere anywhere else. Over the years, the management and staff at Killashee have been subjected to our whims, sometimes last-second ideas, and unusual requests. Without fail they have not only delivered but done so with an unfailing attention to detail and a supportive approach that I challenge any conference venue, anywhere, to replicate.

In recent times, Killshee has played a significant role in keeping COSAC going through the pandemic and all the challenges it presented. We simply would not have been able to run COSAC Connect or COSAC 2021 Virtual from our World-class broadcasting studio without huge assistance and support from Killashee.

Located just 2KM outside the town of Naas in Kildare, 30KM from Dublin, our venue delivers a World-class conference facility with genuinely exceptional dining experiences. It has a truly enchanted setting, with a wonderfully rich history from the Victorian grandeur of the Original House to the acres of splendid gardens and gloriously wild woodland and trails. Those delegates wishing to work-out or relax in the few hours of non-COSAC time, can make use of Killashee’s state of the art gym, Leisure Club with 25 metre swimming pool & Award- Winning Spa.

View our arrival video on YouTube to get a flavour of what awaits you at Killashee Hotel – Home of COSAC. I very much look forward to welcoming you to Killashee for our conference this year.

Best wishes

David Lynas, COSAC Chairman
