15-Minute Commute – Your Office in Dublin 

Things To Consider When Picking An Office In Dublin

When it comes to choosing where to base your office in Dublin, it is important to think it through thoroughly. There are a few things to consider when putting down your company’s roots. Some of these decision factors will probably include office space, surrounding restaurants, and of course, the commute. Having a short commute in the morning can make your week feel less draining. When you spend 2+ hours a day on public transport or stuck in traffic it can feel like that’s how you spent most of your days. We’re sure you’ve felt the dread of being backed up in traffic and haven’t moved for several minutes. 

Luckily for you, The Glasshouses have locations outside the city centre that are focused on making a comfortable professional environment that gets you excited to go to work in the morning. We have taken the liberty of mapping out our locations and finding surrounding areas that can have a 15-minute or less commute by public transport, cycling or driving. We hope this makes it an easy decision for when choosing an office space in Dublin.

About The Glasshouses Office Space In Dublin

The Glasshouses are office spaces in Dublin that provide an environment for your company grow. We provide meeting rooms, hot desks and whole offices to rent for different numbers of companies. We house all sorts of businesses from sole traders to limited companies and corporate clients. 

What is a coworking space? 

A coworking space means that you share a building with other companies and business owners. There are meeting rooms to rent so there are always new people around to encourage and inspire you. 

Hot desks have become popular in recent years because they are convenient, affordable and beneficial to your business. If you work at home, it is easy to get distracted by what else needs to be done while you’re trying to work. This can lead to frustration, which can then lead to even less productivity. 

Renting a hot desk means you can come in when you really want a stress-free day of work.   A lot of hot desks for rent offer prices based on a daily rate, or how many days per week/month you plan on coming in. Because of this, renting a hot desk or shared office space is an affordable way to get some extra work done.

Anyone can use a co-working space. In the GlassHouses, we host established businesses who come in nearly every day, as well as start-up companies looking to do some admin work for a few hours a week. The only common denominator is that they are all like-minded individuals with ambitions and goals.

Serviced Office Dublin

Having serviced offices for your team to collaborate on their projects can hugely benefit your company’s productivity. Not to mention, a cleaner and more convenient alternative to working from home. 

Working from home can be a convenient option and it is part of the future of the business. However, some things need to collaborate face to face. Meetings with clients, projects involving multiple employees, making small talk with familiar faces. These are all things that are made more personal, efficient and fun by having face-to-face contact. 

Renting shared office space for your company means you can have this interaction with no painful rent agreement or lease. The Glass Houses have office spaces of many different sizes so there is definitely a right fit for your company. Whether a one-person show or a six-person operation, having a space as a home base can add massive comfort to your company.
