Our Space

Dogpatch opened in March 2015 and has been through three distinct stages of development. The original site allowed us the opportunity 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. Our newest and third phase was the construction of the Mezzanine Floor and our flexible hotdesking Urban Garden space.

Ground Floor

A former furniture store located on the north end of the chq Building, the 13,000 sq. ft of space began development 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 passer-by of being a doggy day care centre (!), Dogpatch Labs still attracts lots of interest within the building but has since 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 the 200-year-old former whiskey vaults into a world-class events and meeting room space enables greater community involvement. 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 Urban Garden

Partnerships with Pivotal Labs, Ulster Bank and Google enabled the development of the Mezzanine Floor, allowing Dogpatch Labs to become Ireland’s largest coworking space at 40,000 sq. ft. Half of the space serves as hotdesking space for entrepreneurs, while the other half is dedicated to office space for Pivotal Labs. The Urban Garden also serves as an events space for the community hosting meetups, hackathons, innovation workshops and our increasingly popular monthly partner program First Fridays For Startups.
