Why choose a coworking office space?
Coworking in Dublin has really taken off, establishing a new kind of workspace for startups and established businesses alike.
You’re not just a tenant in a coworking space. Instead, you’re a member of a collective, an active part of a community made up of like-minded creators, innovators and entrepreneurs.
Coworking spaces tend to be in cool, contemporary, aesthetically-pleasing buildings. But it’s their relative affordability that makes them so attractive. You can get a desk space in a fully-serviced, centrally located building for only two or three hundred euro a month. Some of them even offer pay-as-you-go and hourly pricing plans.
Many coworking spaces also offer private offices for businesses that are ready to expand. They’re also available to multinational companies that want to position themselves within Dublin’s startup ecosystem where growth, innovation and progress are all a key part of the culture.
Spaces available throughout Dublin
In Dublin, coworking spaces are provided by global names like WeWork, as well as home-grown companies like Iconic Offices and Glandore. But Government-funded Enterprise Centres around the city also play a key role in providing these valuable business spaces.
The likes of the Digital Hub and Dogpatch Labs cater specifically to Dublin’s tech sector. While educational institutions like DCU, UCD, and TU Dublin provide shared offices which focus on innovation and incubation spaces for startups.
