Your Guide To Renting An Office In Dublin

Setting up an office in Dublin? You’re in good company. Dublin is home to many of the world’s biggest and most influential companies, and with a tech and finance sector to rival Silicon Valley, it is no wonder so many companies are locating their headquarters here. 

Deciding to rent an office in Dublin is easy, but actually doing it can be anything but. Phrases like Serviced Office, business centre, hot-desking, co-working and pro-working get thrown around - but what do they actually all mean? And what one will work best for your needs?

That's why you need our no-nonsense guide to renting a Serviced Office in Dublin. Here we will answer all your questions about Dublin office rentals and help you to find your perfect space.

Why you should choose a Serviced Office

Choosing a Serviced Office for your business is a very wise decision. A Serviced Office makes renting a breeze; as the office is managed for you, all you need to worry about is getting on with work. The building will be entirely managed by a dedicated team and you will be charged just one monthly bill, making it very easy to budget and keep track of expenses.

Which type of office rental is right for you?

The answer to this question relies on a number of factors.

  1. How big is your team?
  2. What do you want from your space?
  3. How long do you want the space for?

1. Depending on the size of your team, you might fit comfortably into a co-working space shared with other businesses or you might be big enough to occupy a whole space by yourselves.  However, even teams as small as one or two people can also occupy entire private offices - it all just depends on what you want from the space.

2. If you are a young start-up company, comfortable with working amongst other businesses, then co-working might be for you. It is usually cheaper than private office options, for obvious reasons. It is worth remembering that you can also opt for both options, with the majority of your team in a co-working space while key members can rent private offices in the same building. No two Serviced Offices are the same, so it is always good to ask your office broker what options are available to you. 

If your team is very flexible, you can even go down the hot-desking route. This is where your team works in a co-working space but doesn't have a dedicated desk; they just take whatever desk is free that day. If you like a little more consistency, fixed-desk options are also available, so your team can sit in the same seat each day and leave their belongings on the desks or in lockers.

One large team can also occupy a whole space, with many business centres offering entire spaces for anything up to about 250 people. Private offices for teams of anything from one person up are also available. 

3. Serviced Offices are incredibly flexible, meaning you don't need to tie yourself into long lease agreements of a few years, just to get your foot in the door. Instead, they offer rental agreements for as little as just a few months and can be extended for as long as you need.

Depending on the space, you can also alter your desk requirements as you go. This means your space will grow with you as your team evolves.

What do you get from a Serviced Office?

Serviced Offices are buildings that are entirely managed for you, with all services and amenities already in place. Most come fully furnished, so they are ready for you to walk in the door and start working.

You can also save money with Serviced Offices. As you may share the building with other companies, the costs are spread out more, meaning you can afford to set up shop in some of the most prestigious business addresses in the city.

You can rent private offices or desks in co-working spaces. You can also make use of meeting rooms, boardrooms and event spaces which, depending on your building, can be included in your monthly price or rented on a need-by-need basis. Many also include surprise extras, such as rooftop terraces, gyms, cafes, restaurants and more.
