Our Space

Dogpatch has been open for just over a year and has been through three distinct stages of development. The original site allowed us the oportunity to create space for up to 25 startups, many of which are still with us. The second phase of development, with the help of Ulster Bank, gave us The Vaults, our dedicated events and meeting space.

Ground Floor

A former furniture store located on the north end of the chq Building, the 13,000 sq ft of space began to be developed in January 2015. A young and dynamic team was assembled and tasked with drawing up plans and designs for a unique coworking space. Once confused by a passerby of being a doggy day care centre (!), Dogpatch still attracts lots of interest within the building but has firmly established its presence in the area.

The Vaults

The development of The Vaults in partnership with Ulster Bank represents the second stage in the evolution of Dogpatch Labs as it grew to 22,000 sq ft. The conversion of 200 year old former whisky vaults into a world-class events and meeting room space enables greater community involvement in Dogpatch. Since the launch of The Vaults in November 2015, there have been hundreds of diverse events and thousands of attendees who have come through our doors.

The Mezzanine

Partnerships with Pivotal Labs, Ulster Bank and Google enabled the development of the Mezzanine Floor, allowing Dogpatch Labs to become Ireland’s largest cowroking space at 40,000 sq ft. Half of the space will serves as hotdesking space for entrepreneurs, while the other half will be dedicated to office space for Pivotal Labs. The Urban Garden area will also serve as an events space for the community with recent events such as the ESB Big Energy Hack proving to be a huge success.
