5 Desks with a View
14 June 2023 By Leah Fairman
There are lots of reasons to work from a Hub. Maybe you haven’t got an adequate set-up at home, and the idea of your own desk in a dedicated, professional space appeals. Perhaps you’re travelling around Ireland but need to send a few emails. Or you’ve got your own business and want to network, while availing of top-of-the-range facilities.
Whatever the reason, with over 300 Hubs dotted around the country, there’s one to suit your needs. What’s more, a whole host of Irish Hubs are (unsurprisingly) located in absolutely stunning surrounds. So, whether you’re looking to hot desk for a day or settle into Hub life for a few weeks or months, why not consider one of these fabulous desks with a view.

Founded by sisters Carol Ann and Barbara, M-Space looks out onto Malahide’s pretty marina. Born and bred in this charming coastal Dublin town, the sisters noticed that SMEs and sole traders were struggling with the cost of renting units. “More and more people are looking for ‘an-all-in-price' and don’t want any of the hassle”, they noted. And so, M-Space was born! Carol Ann and Barbara pride themselves on flexibility and will happily tailor a membership to suit your business needs.

If you need to join a meeting in the Midlands, look no further than the newly-opened Yard in Abbeyshrule.

It doesn’t get much more scenic than the village of Sneem in West Kerry.

What’s more, if you’re contemplating a more permanent move to this idyllic village, manager Aidan will act as your personal concierge, linking you up with local service providers and ensuring your find somewhere suitable to stay.
