DOGPATCH LABS - MEET THE PRESS

DOGPATCH OFFICIALLY LAUNCH THE ‘VAULTS’ [CHQ DUBLIN]


Dogpatch Labs in partnership with Ulster Bank invited me to the Press Launch of The Vaults.

The Vaults is a state-of-the-art dedicated event space in the historic 200 year old former wine and whiskey storehouse beneath Dogpatch Labs, which is set to become a focal point for Ireland’s technology community. The Vaults will comprise flexible workshop and events space, large and small meeting rooms and a bar.

Special guests Minister Simon Harris TD and Neville Isdell former CEO the Coca Cola Company spoke, and we got the chance to meet with the companies based in Dogpatch Labs over breakfast and coffee.

A location like no other building in Dublin, the chq building overlooks the River Liffey and George’s Dock, the site which was to be home to Ireland’s National Theater, the Abbey. The chq building is a grade one listed building situated within the heart of the Ireland's bustling International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) in the Docklands. Formerly known as Stack A, it was built in 1820 as a wine and tobacco warehouse. The then Stack A was made famous when it hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856 celebrating the return of 3,000 Irish soldiers. The building has been magnificently restored and enhanced.

“THE LANDMARK CHQ Building in the heart of the IFSC has been sold by the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) for just over €10 million. The property was bought by former Coca-Cola Company CEO Neville Isdell, who says that the initial plan is to make improvements to the building before deciding on its long-time use”
