The INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHY OLYMPIAD (iGeo)
The 2024 iGeo - Maynooth and Dublin, Ireland
Fáilte go hÉirinn!
Welcome to Ireland!
The 20th International Geography Olympiad will take place in Ireland from 19 to 24 August, 2024 under the auspices of the International Geographical Union Olympiad Task Force. The optional Post-iGeo trip will be held after the event.
IGEO events will take place in Maynooth town, the University of Maynooth and Trinity College Dublin.
Maynooth is a university town in north County Kildare, Ireland. It is home to Maynooth University where students taking part in IGEO will stay. The town has a range of services, cafes, shops and open spaces. It is just 30 minutes from Dublin by train. The main events of the Olympiad will take place in Maynooth, and students will be able to walk everywhere they need to get to. There is plenty of space to meet, chat and relax at times other outside the IGEO events.
Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dublin has many attractions for young people, including historic buildings such as Dublin Castle and Trinity College, beautiful parks such as St Stephen’s Green and Merrion Square, interesting museums, shops and markets. Students taking part in IGEO will visit Dublin on two of the days of the event. They may also choose to stay in Dublin before or after the event.
Students will have the opportunity to explore Maynooth and Dublin during IGEO. Dublin will include time at Trinity College Dublin, the Museums of Ireland as well as free time in the city.
IGEO is a competition for national teams of up to four students.
