With hybrid working the new normal in the business world and employees comfortable working in their slippers at home, what is the point of holding on to your Dublin office space? It might feel pointless in the winter months when staff are happy to work from home full time, but summer is where you and your staff will feel the benefits of a city centre office space. Giving employees the opportunity and space to work face to face encourages collaboration and camaraderie, team qualities that cannot be strengthened via a screen. Here are some of the other benefits your staff can enjoy working in Dublin this summer.

Convenience is key

One of the best things about Summer in Dublin is lunchtime in the park. We’re lucky to have many pretty green spaces on both sides of the river, ideal for dining al fresco. We’re also spoiled for choice with bars, pubs cafes, restaurants and food trucks offering something different than your usual ham and cheese from the fridge at home. This summer, get out at lunchtime and explore the new lunch spots in Dublin, picking up a takeaway to enjoy in the local park or garden.

The same goes for after-work drinks. Catching up with colleagues and friends after hours is an important part of bonding between colleagues and summer in Dublin is an ideal opportunity. Dublin has a wealth of pubs and bars, from local hole-in-the-walls to fancy rooftop cocktail spots within a couple of minutes’ walk from our North and South side serviced office locations. Dublin is so well connected by road, bus, rail and taxi that getting home is simple, no matter what time you decide to wrap up.

If you want to pick up a couple of groceries, shop for a gift for a loved one or pick up some last-minute holiday bits before your well-deserved trip, nowhere compares to Dublin City. With shops, stalls, boutiques, centres and department stores on both sides of the River Liffey, you’re sure to find something that suits you. Working in Dublin is so convenient for shopping, you’ll never worry about missing a birthday or what to have for dinner again. Online shopping will never hold a candle to walking into a shop and touching the material, smelling the fresh bread or buying one last treat before the diet starts on Monday!

Keeping fit in Dublin

When you work in the city, it’s so much easier to keep up a regular fitness routine. Aside from the extra steps from your commute and your lunchtime walk, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to gyms and fitness centres. You can visit a cheap, brand-name gym, squeezing in a quick sweat and swim at lunchtime or choose from a huge selection of personal trainers and dedicate an hour every evening to your body, with maximum flexibility and minimum commute. Aside from the usual fitness classes and gyms, Dublin city also has plenty of alternative fitness classes like salsa dancing, pole fitness, Zumba, and F45. We’ve even seen a handstand workshop advertised! Keeping fit is easier when you work in Dublin City.

Events in Dublin this Summer

One of the best things about working in Dublin in summertime is the range of events. You’ll always find something great to keep yourself amused, from theme nights in the local pub to superstar concerts and gigs in nearby arenas. If you’re planning to go to an event in Dublin, plan a day working in your office in Dublin and go straight to a pub or restaurant at 5pm, perfect to start the party early. Dublin has so many headline and alternative acts, plays, performers, singers, dancers and more on the schedule this summer. Keep your eye on events pages so you don’t miss the best local and international talent in the capital this summer.
