Dublin Office Price Summary

Dublin is a city that has something for everyone. With a population of 1.3 million, it's the largest city in Ireland and home to over 200,000 jobs. It's also one of the fastest-growing cities in the EU, so it's no surprise that there are plenty of businesses including Aer Lingus, Guinness, and Allergan plc calling Dublin home.

With a growing tech centre, nicknamed "Silicon Docks", the city also includes many homegrown start-ups that are developing innovative products like drones, autonomous vehicles, and artificial intelligence systems (AI).

Located on the East coast at the mouth of the River Liffey, Dublin is a thriving city for music, theatre, and business. As the capital of Ireland, Dublin is known for its small-town feel with big-city amenities. For companies looking to base their headquarters or for multinationals like HelloFresh, Google, and Twitter, it's the perfect city to get started in the EU.

As the largest city in Ireland, Dublin also has the largest number of serviced offices and coworking desks in the country with 76% of all available offices located within its border. Whether it's the bare basics or luxury in a tier-one building, businesses choosing to operate in Dublin have a plethora of options.

Here's a quick snapshot of the current market price for a desk in a private office, a coworking desk, floorspace, and desk capacity in Dublin:

Dublin Prices Remain Flat in 2022

At €500 per desk, the median rate for an office in Dublin has remained relatively unchanged throughout the year. However, this does not mean the market itself has been quiet. In fact, there's been substantial movement in prices for midsized offices for 11-15 people and larger enterprise offices for 26 to 100 people with midsized offices rising upwards of 20% from the start of the year while rates for larger offices over 50 or more staff have dropped close to 25% during the same time period. Today, the cost to rent a desk in a private office for a team of 11-50 is €625 per desk while an office with 50 or more desks will cost €522 per desk.

With restrictions over, for now, and businesses looking to bring their teams back together again, we expect there to be some upward pressure on prices. Though there's no doubt inflation, the war in Ukraine and other market conditions are having an impact on the current business sentiment which should keep a damper on prices for the short term.

Office Capacity by Floor Space and Size in Dublin

Whether you're a local business with a team of 8, an international unicorn looking to launch in a new country, or a well-established business looking to expand, Dublin has a wide selection of offices available. However, as much as 75% of all offices cater to teams of 10 people or less.

Larger spaces for teams of 16 or more make up 63% of the floor space and tend to have a much higher median price due to special inclusions such as private floors, meeting rooms, separate entrances, and amenities that cater to specific business needs.

Dublin's Serviced Office Operators

Like many factors in business, office space comes in many different varieties often defined by location, quality of the building, and amenities. In Dublin, Investi and Lis Cara Business Centre have offices available for under €400 per person. while Iconic Offices, Pembroke Hall, and WeWork provide a higher-end option for those businesses with budgets from €500 to €700 per desk.

Comparing one operator to the other is not recommended on price alone though as most operator's have their own style & fit-outs that differentiate them from other hosts. Thus we often recommend that businesses tour a number of spaces to get a good sense of the overall style rather than selecting on price alone. WeWork vs Regus for example often have very different styles. While WeWork's office style is often described as casual and relaxed, Regus (IWG) is professional and corporate.

Office Space Price by District

As with many metropolitan cities, the driving factor affecting the price of commercial real estate and serviced offices is location. The closer the office is to the core business district, the higher the rent. Dublin is no different, with rents at their highest in Dublin 2 ranging from €542 for a 50-person office to €693 for a 15-25 person office. But as you venture aware from the core, the rents become more affordable with even Dublin 8 providing great value with rates ranging from €385 for a 1-4 person office to €550 for a 15-25 person office.
