The Dublin Docklands: A Global Hub with a Colourful History

What do technology, coconuts and Guinness all have in common?

Believe it or not, there is a connection between the three. That connection? The Dublin Docklands.

Known as the European centre for technology and innovation, The Dublin Docklands are brimming with cutting-edge offices, stylish apartments and trendy event venues. But little did you know there’s so much more to Dublin’s treasure than the fluorescent lights and stunning architecture.

Then and Now: Always A Global Hub

The Dublin Docklands were once the world’s largest docks. Importing and exporting everything from sugar cane and flour to glass bottles and coconuts across the globe, the docks were also the very spot where Dublin’s most famous drink started its journey to become one of the most successful alcohol brands in the world. Guinness, the world-famous black stout we love to hate (or hate to love!) was once shipped in enormous barges from these very docklands, dating back to the 1870s.

Fast forward to the late 1980s, the Docklands were at the heart of a state-sponsored plan to develop an international financial services centre (IFSC). In the early 2000s, a regeneration campaign kicked-off to create a new social and economic hub to attract global businesses to the area. In May of 2014, some 366,000 square metres of office space and 2,600 homes were fast-tracked to be developed within the DockLands.

Today, the Dublin Docklands is as much a global hub as it ever was. Steeped in colourful history, today’s vibrant, trendy and thriving Docklands (a.k.a. the “Silicon Docks”) are home to some of the biggest names in technology employing over 7,000 technology focused professionals.

All the more reason Synergy is excited to announce yet another addition of not one, but two upscale properties to its Dublin offerings in the heart of the Docklands. Thus adding to its ever-growing European portfolio of apartments in London and Dublin.
