6 Dublin Coworking Space Essentials

6 Dublin Coworking Space Essentials

What Coworking Space?

Coworking space is when furnished meeting rooms, offices and desks are rented by different companies to work. Renting Dublin coworking space for your company can have endless benefits for your business and your employees. Some being the convenience of having flexibility, being able to socialise with like-minded people, having serviced office spaces, and the biggest benefit that only comes with the Glasshouses is that our office spaces are outside the city centre.  

Dublin Coworking Space Essential 1: Travel Time

When you are choosing a coworking space, it is vital that you choose the right one. One of the most important factors when it comes to convenience is travel time. Having a difficult or long route to work makes it much harder to get out of bed in the morning. So, make it easier on yourself. Choose a location that is easy to get to by car or public transport, with minimal traffic. 

Dublin Coworking Space Essential 2: Coffee

It is important to have a good coffee shop near you so you can get your daily fix. Coffee can be so delicious and make you feel amazing when it is made right. The perfect place to meet a client. 

Unfortunately, the smallest thing can make it wrong. They put skimmed milk in your coffee instead of full fat, or they use the wrong brand of oat milk, or maybe they didn’t quite make it strong enough, a  rude staff member. Any of these can put a damper on your day. 

Well, lucky for you, we’ve scouted out the best coffee for you. In Dun Laoghaire, our favourite is Two Beans. They have incredibly friendly service and always remember a face. On top of that their coffee is delicious, and if you don’t drink coffee they have matcha lattes, herbal teas and sweet treats (including gluten-free and vegan options). This is only one of the array of incredible coffee shops in Dun Laoghaire. 

In Sandyford, The Coffee Shot is great for an early morning coffee. The staff, again, is always friendly and will remember your order when you frequent there. They have an array of sandwiches, pastries and doughnuts to choose from which are all scrumptious.

Dublin Coworking Space Essential 3: Lunch

With restaurants, the options are overwhelming really. A good, quick lunch spot is so important when you are trying to squeeze your meal into your hour break. 

Well lucky for you, both Sandyford and Dun Laoghaire have delicious quick options. 

In the beacon south quarter in Sandyford, right beside our Dublin working spaces, you can get anything from sushi to Mexican. There is also a Dunnes right there and an Aldi close by if you just want to buy some fruit something cheap and cheerful to heat up. 

In Dun Laoghaire, you have options all down George street. From SOUP ramen bar (which is incredible) to the Sunshine cafe for a sandwich, or something quick, Tescos is right next door. 

Dublin Coworking Space Essential 4: Cleanliness

Having a clean working environment is important to any company. In fact, having a clean workspace improves productivity. An organised desk means an organised mind. Aside from the obvious organisational benefits of a clean space, the most important thing is hygiene. With shared bathrooms kitchen space, desks, and meeting rooms it is vital that your coworking space is regularly cleaned. The Dublin coworking space, the Glasshouses, are serviced offices in Dublin that are professionally cleaned every evening. During the day the kitchen and the bathrooms are cleaned regularly. If the meeting rooms are booked back to back, they are checked in between each meeting.

Since the initial outbreak of covid-19, it has become clear that we need to be cautious about cleanliness. It is important to regularly wash your hands, wipe down the counters and wash your hands again! Why? To prevent the spread of covid-19 or any other bacteria or virus anyone could be carrying. 

Dublin Coworking Space Essential 5: Safety

If you’re renting an office space safety is a priority. It is important to you that you can leave your computer and sensitive files in the office. So, how can you ensure you will have a feeling of security when you’re away from the office? Make sure you find a coworking space that has locks for every office. Especially yours! On top of that, it is important that there is a front door lock to the whole building. This is so not just anyone can walk in off the streets. A code on the entrance can ensure an extra layer of safety for your belongings. 

Dublin Coworking Space Essential 6: Kitchen

Despite there being countless coffee shops and restaurants around the area, sometimes you just want to make yourself a quick cuppa. You also may want to heat up your leftovers from your tasty leftovers from the night before. That’s where a kitchen comes in handy. The essentials are a fridge, microwave, toaster, sink and of course, free tea, coffee and milk. Free tea and coffee is important for yourself, but also for your clients and guests. Being able to offer a fresh pot of coffee or tea adds a sense of comfort and warmth to the meeting.
