Registration and collecting your ticket

Our Animation Dingle Festival Desk can be found at the far end of the Dingle Skellig Hotel foyer.  Our opening times are:

THURSDAY 21st March 15.00 – 19.00

FRIDAY 22nd March 08.00 – 19.00

SATURDAY 23rd March 10.00 – 17.00

We are here to help and assist, so please do go to the Desk if you have any questions, queries or concerns.

Please make your way to our Festival Desk to collect your Animation Dingle Festival 2024 Pass.


Please ensure that you have your Eventbrite confirmation with you along with supporting documentation relevant to your Pass type.  Required documentation is on your Eventbrite confirmation.

Your Eventbrite confirmation will be scanned, checking you into the festival and you will be issued with your Festival Pass on a lanyard.  Our staff will also secure an Animation Dingle Festival wristband to your wrist.

It is ESSENTIAL that you have both of these on your person at all times throughout the Festival.  You WILL NOT be permitted entry to any of our events without both your lanyard Festival Pass AND your wristband on your wrist.  

In the event that you should lose or misplace either or both of these items, the Festival cannot issue duplicates and you will need to purchase a NEW Pass to gain entry to Festival events.  However, we do offer legitimate cases a discounted price on a replacement Pass.

Please see our Terms & Conditions HERE

Entry to main events 

You DO NOT need to prebook entry to our Conference, Pitch & a Pint, Awards Night, Screenings or our amazing ANIMATION DINGLE FAIR.  We recommend, however, you arrive in good time to all of these events in order to secure your seat/space.

Our ANIMATION DINGLE FAIR on Saturday allows you to chat informally to studios and industry experts to make enquiries DIRECTLY with them regarding vacancies they may have.  Studios are there specifically to support students in this; they want to meet you.  If the studio you are interested in is busy when you arrive, this is also a space to hang out and grab a coffee as the bar in this space will be open and we will have tables and seating available.  We want this space to be a hub and to be bustling with students!  

Call on in and chat to potential employers and check out some wonderful demonstrations!

Entry to booked workshops and events

You will need to pre-book for some of our workshops and events. 

When you pre-book via Eventbrite before the Festival, you will be issued with a specific code for each booking.  As with checking in at our Festival Desk, you will need to present your unique code to gain access to each of your pre-booked workshops and events.  Our Festival Team will scan your code before allowing you access.

We appreciate your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you to Animation Dingle 2024.
