We have big ambitions to position Dublin 8 as the capital’s premier Innovation District, blending world-class startup spaces and business clusters with vibrant community life and access to quality services. Our vision is that everything you should need to grow your business should be here.
With a campus straddling both sides of Thomas Street and seven properties, The Digital Hub is one of Dublin’s premier locations for emerging digital media, software and tech companies.
The Digital Hub is currently home to almost 100 individual media and digital technology companies, employing over 700 highly-skilled professionals. Some of the sector’s best known names have started life in the Hub. The campus continues to expand: the converted Grainstore opened its doors in 2015, while a major new phase of development is being progress for buildings on the south side of Thomas Street including Vathouse No 7.
Based in The Digital Hub, the National Digital Research Centre (NDRC) is an early stage investor in tech companies, providing the people, time, space and investment needed at the earliest stages of company creation. In 2015, NDRC was ranked no. 1 University Business Incubator in Europe and no. 2 University Business Accelerator in the World by UBI Global.
Located nearby on Taylor’s Lane, The GEC provides a world-class enterprise centre for innovative start-ups across a range of sectors and has seen over 600 companies progress through the centre since its inception in 2000. The campus includes dedicated office spaces, meeting facilities, a cafe and various support services all located within a converted historic building. GEC is currently home to over 400 entrepreneurs and small business and is also considering expansion.
