A little village in the county of the same name sitting on the Shannon River, Leitrim is in the land of shamrocks and little green men wearing funny hats. The city is the gateway to the Shannon-Erne Waterway and about 155 km from Dublin, so you are not really in the back of beyond. It has a tiny population of about 594 souls, so you will have plenty of opportunity to mingle and chat in the coworking space that has opened up.
Between the years of 2002 and 2007 there was a massive building explosion in the village, which resulted in several large self-catering apartment complexes going up especially around the village's marinas. Leitrim is the perfect base from which to check out some local sights, such as getting lost in the Lough Key Forest Park or the nearby town of Carrick on Shannon to name a few. There is a plethora of cafes, bars and restaurants to linger in and plenty of accommodation options from "glamping" to simple camping or a cute place to park the campervan. If you want to play in the outdoors you can rent a boat or hire a bike.
This river boating hub has a few quaint old buildings to gawk at, such as the super small Costello Memorial Chapel where you can say a prayer for your startup to succeed to the old courthouse houses on the Dock. Leitrim is definitely no startup hub, but it is an escape hatch for those who wish to have a cozy lifestyle with lots of fresh air, rather than fighting their way to work in a big city. Ireland is actually brimming with tech talent and many startups are emerging from what is called the "Emerald Isle". A coworking venue appearing on the streets of Leitrim is testament to the fact that some creative souls thrive when they have a mischievous bearded leprechaun peering over their shoulder as they work.
