Workspace network NoCo expands across Ireland

NoCo signs partnership deals that expands co-working reach beyond Dublin to Tralee, Naas, Portlaoise, Newtownmountkennedy, Carlow, Cork and Kilkenny.

Innovative property business focused on the future of work NoCo has created Ireland’s largest hybrid workspace network after signing partnership deals with a range of co-working providers across the country.

The move offers workers access to a single network that consists of over 100 remote working locations nationwide.

“We’ve pivoted the direction of business to address the wider geographical needs of the Irish workforce”

“We are delighted to be working with a variety of partners including Huckletree, M-Space and Republic of Work to bring a whole new range of options and ‘ready to go’ locations to Irish workers,” said Brian Moran, co-founder of NoCo.

“While we were originally focused on the Dublin commuter belt, due to the impact of the pandemic on the future of work, we’ve pivoted the direction of business to address the wider geographical needs of the Irish workforce. We’re excited to be in a position to provide more accessible workspaces to communities across Ireland as well as employment opportunities, and believe this pivot will enable us to scale into the EU and UK at an even faster pace.”

The gradual return to the office environment


NoCo enables large companies to connect their team to a network of close to home workspaces across Ireland via one membership, one monthly invoice and one point of contact. This service is suitable for companies and organisations of any scale or size.

“Partnering with NoCo is the way forward in terms of offering a comprehensive service offering to the corporate client, who can now have talent distributed throughout Ireland,” said Barbara Nolan, co-founder of M-Space.

“There are lots of owner-run hubs dotted around the country now, providing a local service to their community, so this is a significant step forward to all join forces under one NoCo network to satisfy the new demand for flexible working in Ireland.

“M-Space are fully committed to providing a local and personalised service for any NoCo clients living in the Malahide or nearby Fingal communities. We are also very excited to expand our network with NoCo as a collaborative partner into other geographical locations, which will be client-driven and demand-led. The future of work and new way of working is very exciting.”

A key part of the membership is the option of utilising open or shared workspaces in any of the locations on the network nationwide or alternatively, clients can have their own bespoke dedicated office network created for them.

Companies like companies like Welltel and Johnson Hana use the service to seamlessly manage their hybrid workspace options via one membership, one monthly invoice and one point of contact

As companies begin to gradually return to the office environment, they are utilising the NoCo network to implement their hybrid working strategies.

“Johnson Hana has lawyers registered on our platform who are based all across the country, and through the NoCo network we can now support them with an appropriate workplace environment – closer to both where they live, and our client sites,” explained Johnson Hana CEO Dan Fox.

“NoCo provides an innovative solution to a constantly evolving working landscape. We can scale our office requirements to suit client demand, and this is now all made much easier thanks to NoCo.”
