Talent Garden at DCU - Catchy Review of Co-Working Space in D9, Dublin, Ireland 👩🏻💻👨🏻💻
Updated: Feb 13
Consumer Rights Law and GDPR do apply. Customer independent reviews are based on personal experiences and do varies from person to person. Experience matters, honest reviews too, that's how we all can grow as we all provide business, service or product. Professionalism matter.
Most of my reviews 95% are 5 or 4 ⭐ so well done for those who gets 5 (I love it) or 4 ( I like it) stars! 3 ⭐ review is also a good review, more neutral, means "It is OK".
Sadly, some places do need to get 2 (I dislike) or 1 (I hate). I do not like the "hate" word. But well, that's what Google decide. I am not fall in love with Google itself in everything what they do, but actually about reviews, I must say, I do value very much, what they do.
Leaving negative review it is risky, if you meet some unprofessional business owner, because on Google your name is visible, but because it is visible is trustworthy. But I decide to take this risk because my aim is to help businesses growth, to challenge them if necessary and to appreciate them. It is rarely happening that actually I do visit places or receive not so good service or I am not happy with the product. I bring more good by appreciating good stuff about those business and politely highlight what can be improve and/or should be change. However, every feedback is only based on individual experiences and should be always evaluated with other feedbacks.
I do believe as User Experience Designer that User Feedback is EVERYTHING.
More feedbacks from honest Users than better. I feel Google Reviews actually should pay Customers for every feedback they leave. That time every business will get a proper amount of feedbacks from everyone who ever use their services or get their products.
Also, I am graduates from the most recognisable and highly accredited Tourism and Hospitality Industry High School in Zakopane, Poland, and across many years I had been exposed to the highest range of hospitality. This industry teaches you a lot about customer care and service.
Constructive and honest, detail-oriented feedback from Users, Customers and Guests bring value to the business, organisations, companies, hotels, and off course to day to day technologies, which we do use.
Important: Feedbacks must be created to increase the potential of the business, service and product not to bring any harm.
However it is up to the business's owner if can receive the professional feedback well and do not take it personally. Unfortunately, if that's the case, this business is not able to actually grow and bring more traffic to their services, offline or online.
You can follow me on Google as Local Guide to find out what type of style of feedback do I have and what kind fo reviews I do give. 😊 See you there!
TIME TO START REVIEW

Let's go straight to good stuff as there is plenty of them! Hooray!
This is the most catchy of all catchy stuff out here.

Do you need a place to be open 24/7?
Read: regardless what is going on 😉
If Yes, check and join co-working space called Talent Garden
FEW CATCHY STUFF ABOUT TALENT GARDEN 🌱🌿🌳
What brought me here is the Catchy name for catchy people and as said before 24/7 open access regardless of what is going on out there...
Are you Talented Individual and do you like Garden? If you say TWICE "YES", Talent Garden combines both just like the name itself!
Let's start with "GRADEN" word which catch my attention. Good name, because truly is a garden out here.
If I will announce this place in a funny way, I would say: Talent Garden is extraordinary co-working space for Green Lovers and Talented Freaks! 🥰
North side of Dublin, few steps from Botanic Garden and Dublin City University, located not far from city centre and on the way to Airport.
GREEN MATTERS TO ME
- DCU Green Area just around your new co-working office.
- Botanic Garden few steps from your desk.
Catchy green area just perfect for yoga/pilates session and/or jogging in the morning and/or at the breaks or even after your busy creative day.
Catchy view through massive windows, which brings good memories from Dublin Mountains hikes.This impressive view is refreshing eyes and brain just by steering at. Sun is shining through windows and you feel like THIS IS NOT IRELAND. 😄Hard to even believe that Irish Weather does exist when you have a sun on your face all day long. (plenty room for those who doesn't like sun too much).
I DO 💚TREES 🌳🌳🌳 and even I DO HUG THEM.
Weird? Well, if you are Irish by heart you know that Trees mean more to Celts than Stars themselves. Mostly because it was hard to observe Sky in constant cloudy sky, so the trees became the symbols of personality trails instead of commonly used stars everywhere else. Trees also refresh my brain, give vital energy, boost my immune system and connect me with Nature more than anything else. Search Irish Tree Horoscope if you interested to know more).
Here, in TALENT GARDEN are plenty of trees. 🌳Plus impressive view of Dublin Mountain as mentioned before. 🏞 Additionally, lots of indoor natural plants too. 🥰
MINUS: Unfortunately plenty also IKEA ugly fake ones too. Time to let Talent Garden know to permanently exclude plastic fake grass, fake plants, fake trees, fake flowers, which only pollute our Green Planet. Maybe time for the Petition on change.org to ban plastic fake plants in Ikea itself? We do not need fake trees, plants and flowers or do we? 🤔I DO NOT THINK SO!
Let's go straight to 3rd floor and see inside!
AND NOW ABOUT TALENT itself!
This place is created for Talented People with Creative Ideas. All kind of professionals are more than welcome here who have innovative minds and wants to explore possibilities out there on the global and local market. This is a place to be and to create something new and give life to it.
YOUR IDEAS DO MATTER and if ever you forget about it, here in TALENT GARDEN are plenty stimulating quotes display directly in front of your eyes on the big massive walls to get you keep going, to take you out of the stuck zone if you have one, push you further, beyond your own measure and boost your energy regardless what is going on in the world. Because your world matters for Talent Garden and they stay open for YOU and Me, 24/7 and I am so thankful to them for this! THANK YOU TALENT GADREN!

HERE COMES THE BALANCE
LESS GOOD STUFF
As every human, every place, every company, and every organisation has a room to improve here is a honest feedback:
Café at Talent Garden - as Talent Garden is located at DCU Campus, meaning the access to local cafés is limited, the selection of food and snacks could be better.
Coffee - better coffee PLEASE. 🤨
Not sure if Talent Garden has telephone call/virtual meetings rooms free to book at any time and if yes, how many of them is here - it is time to ask and check it out. 🧐
Only 3 hours free meeting rooms per month? Meaning additionally paid meeting rooms? No idea how does it work, so worth checking it!
Worth compering a monthly membership fee with other co-working spaces and what is included in their offers!
Room to improve clutter as there is few places under staircase with random stuff...
As mention before: no need for fake plants - no more plastic please! SAVE THE EARTH!
Desks with draws will be handy to have especially for dedicated desk area.
Wires - come on, hide them so everything is tidy and safe to walk around.
Password for Wi-Fi didn't work out few times - should be updated and checked on regular basics by staff members.
TWO MAJOR RED Flags 🚩 🚩
NO SKYPE (VIRTUAL MEETINGS/ CALL ROOMS) ROOMS. - big NO NO, where should you take a private calls, have zoom meetings etc.? - I was answered "People go to corridors"...WHAT? Excuse me.
Meetings rooms only 3 hours per month for free and the rest is paid extra? Another NO.
You might find more... but I do know other places as big as Talent Garden, which do facilitate Skype Rooms and free of charge meeting rooms as much as you required.
SO THINK TWICE... 😉
Although, I DO REALLY LIKE 24/7 ACCESS ANYTIME. So...
My personal/professional conclusion is to Search and Shop Around, as there is no rush to make any decision.
Because it is fun to give a time to find the better match!
Now it is Time for you to Explore Yourself as every review has a limited individual opinion!
Do you want to know more catchy stuff and also less catchy, come and visit TALENT GARDEN NOW and START TO CREATE YOUR IDEAS HERE, between trees, mountains and sky, if you like it.
I would say YES to Talent Garden just after few hours here I do like it and it is worth the price.
All feedbacks and opinions do matter but they also shift depends what objectives are visible at current stage of mind and time of writing. Tomorrow is another day and I might see more catchy and less catchy stuff, here or somewhere else. What is the most important and why I might decide to join TALENT GARDEN, is that this place give excellent focus with a good vibe and really stunning view. Also if you work full time and also need to catch up with your own project, the most important that you have access at any time 24 hours per 7 days a week including all bank holidays. There is also no restrictions to current global situation. Membership gives you full access to all facilities with no limited time.
Basically place runs as normal.
MEMBERSHIP AND PRICE OFFERS
The best is to check prices directly on their website, however I would recommend to pop in and speak to their staff as I received a better offer. Well, well that's happen often. If you want extra discounts, smile more, catch the attention of speaker with your gorgeous eyes and lean back, let them pursue you. Don't forget you are the CLIENT.
Remember the Sky is your Limit and the horizon is one of many illusions. Don't limit yourself to your house and to the view from your home office (quite often it might be just living room/bedroom/dinning room/kitchen).
JOIN TALENT GARDEN and EXPAND YOUR HORIZON.
SEE THE SKY FROM DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW.
Sending you a good vibe with a sun coming just right on my face.
Catch you later in another catchy place! 😊
