#SiliconDocks - Office space is at a premium for the Dublin tech business community located around the so-called 'Silicon Docks', with many start-ups hampered by high commercial rents and landlords' unrealistic expectations.

But as RTÉ News reports, one enterprising business thinks it's found a solution for the newest additions to the booming tech scene - with a floating office right in the heart of Grand Canal Dock.

DoSpace offers flexible co-working space to up-and-coming companies, entrepreneurs and freelancers on board its converted canal barge, the Grey Owl, at berth number 7 in Grand Canal Dock Marina.

With no advertising, word of mouth has seen the space attract a variety of internet and creative start-ups with differing needs, from those that require a dedicated office to freelancers who only need a desk or a meeting room on occasion.

And demand is such that DoSpace has already ordered a second barge to expand its services and provide affordable workspace to today's more flexible knowledge workers.
