Website_DublinHub_bigIt was no surprise to us when Dublin was recently voted the second friendliest city in the world and our Thousand Network’s Dublin Hub is certainly one of the friendliest place to be.

With Ireland being is known as the land of Saints and Scholars, our hub consists of over 30 members. We’ve brought together young achievers and change makers based throughout Ireland who are bound by curiosity and creativity. We too are change makers, entrepreneurs, musicians, investors, consultants, researchers, artists, producers, journalists, and athletes who have decided to come together and share our time to hear new ideas, support each other’s goals, and create once-in-a-lifetime experiences and friendships together.

We hold regular monthly pints of Guinness (we’re in Ireland remember!) and dinners, together with bespoke events so all our members can get the opportunity to share lifes journey amongst friends. Dublin has been known for throwing fantastic retreats in the past, so stay tuned for our next later this year.

We are looking to grow our Dublin hub community so please get in touch if you are young achiever that is interested in becoming part of the family.
