Dun Laoghaire is a great place to do business. It is home to more than 60 companies in the Digital Space, including a number of multinational players and fast growing newcomers.
Only a 10-minute DART journey away from Grand Canal Dock and its global giants, Dun Laoghaire has a lot to offer. Of course we already know this, that’s why the we have been based here for more than 15 years. However not everyone is aware of the benefits of setting up a business in Dun Laoghaire and to that end an awareness project has been set up highlight what’s great about being based here.
Digital Dun Laoghaire is an initiative of the Dun Laoghaire Business Improvement District and supported by key stakeholders in the town. The Initiative was launched by Minister of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor on the 30th September 2016. The goal is to build a strong cluster of digital companies in Dun Laoghaire for the dual purposes of innovation and urban regeneration. It is a local project which has national significance because this blueprint will be shared with towns across the country as it progresses.
