As much as your office desk is comfortable and familiar, sometimes you just need a change of pace and scenery to inspire new ideas and get those creative juices flowing. Last week, we brought you 5 spots for covert interviews in London – this week we’re back in Jobbio’s hometown with 6 great places to work outside the office in Dublin. Whether you’re looking for an interview spot, a creative space for a meeting, or just somewhere you can get to work independently, we’ve got your back.
This bright and spacious eatery is located on the Main Street of the cosy village of Ranelagh. Cinnamon’s friendly and inviting staff are sure to make you feel right at home. Although the place is buzzing on the weekend, it’s a great spot for a morning interview during the week or an early meeting to get your team feeling fresh and alert for the day.
Located on the banks of the Grand Canal just off Baggot Street, Angelina’s is one of Dublin’s newest hot spots. The combination of Angelina’s location, laidback atmosphere, and beautiful food makes it the perfect place to meet outside of the office.
Bank of Ireland, Innovation Lounge
Found on Grafton Street, Bank of Ireland’s Innovation Lounge is a free workspace that offers an ideal place to host meetings and presentations. It’s a great location for entrepreneurs as they hold free business seminars and clinics, and you’ll also be able to network with like-minded individuals.
Irish Film Institute Café Bar
With its large foyer, this is an excellent place for casual daytime business meetings. Plus, the IFI membership care allows you to build up points in the restaurant that you can redeem against cinema tickets. Free WiFi means you can stay all day if you need to!
Spacious and airy, the Wintergarden Cafe in the National Gallery provides a relaxed location to meet in the heart of the city. It’s perfect for a delicious breakfast, a quick coffee, an informal lunch, or a light bite.
The Dean Hotel
The Dean Hotel is Dublin’s hottest hangout spot. For a morning meeting or an afternoon coffee, the lobby area or rooftop restaurant, Sophie’s, gives a great escape from the usual corporate surroundings. However, if you are looking for somewhere relatively quiet to work, we would recommend avoiding this spot during lunch or after-work hours as it can quickly become very busy.
