- Dublin’s answer to Silicon Valley, Grand Canal Dock, known colloquially as the ‘Silicon Docks’, is home to some of the world’s biggest webtech companies. It will come as no surprise, then, that serviced offices to rent in Grand Canal Dock are some of the coolest and most unusual in the city.
- Google, Facebook, Airbnb and TripAdvisor all have their European headquarters in the area, as well as other giants such as Twitter, Amazon and LinkedIn. As a location, it is also popular with hundreds of seeded start-ups and tech entrepreneurs.
- Grand Canal Dock is located on the south side of the River Liffey in the areas of Dublin 2 and Dublin 4. Since 2000, the area has experienced major regeneration as part of the Dublin Docklands Area Redevelopment Project. Once the world’s largest port, it had declined rapidly by the 1960s, but the area is now once again affluent and brimming with life.
