Where to rent an office in Ireland?
When relocating with the purpose of opening a company in Ireland, one of the main concerns of the businessmen refers to finding a suitable office space necessary for the newly founded company. As a general rule, most of the foreign investors are interested in operating in the most developed Irish cities, which are represented by Dublin, the capital city, Cork or Limerick, as they are also seen as the country’s top business centers.

Our team of specialists in company formation in Ireland can advise in choosing a suitable location and may also assist in the commercial due diligence procedures.

Being the capital city, Dublin provides the most suitable business environment, as it offers a wide range of business activities and investors can benefit from a simple manner of establishing a business partnership. Due to the high demand, the vacancy rate for commercial space is rather limited and thus, the prices for rent have been increasing slightly in the last years.
