Office-sharing company WeWork today officially opened up its first location in Dublin at Iveagh Court in the city centre.

It is the first of three announced locations opening in Dublin, including new development Dublin Landings and George's Quay. 

The Iveagh Court building holds over 1,000 members and is already at capacity.

Microsoft, Twilio and KIND bars are some of the companies that are working from Iveagh Court as well as Irish startups and SMEs. 

The company said this reflects the broad ecosystem of larger enterprise companies and startups interacting together.

Leni Zneimer, ‎General Manager of WeWork's UK and Ireland operations said the company provides "beautiful, flexible workspaces and scalable business services for an inspired community of entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes". 


Describing Dublin as one of the most important tech hubs and most exciting business and creative communities in Europe, Ms Zneimer said there is a thriving ecosystem in Dublin.

This is comprised of companies such as Intercom and Stripe, with Irish founders, as well as major international tech companies.

She said it made total sense for the company to expand here. 

The new workspace in Dublin brings the number of WeWork locations to 74 cities and 22 countries around the world. 

WeWork has a total of 248,000 members worldwide.
