New ‘Remote Working Hubs’ have been set up across Donegal where free remote working has been offered across the county until the end of September.
Donegal County Council has announced that they are providing the opportunity for free remote working from a digital hub. These are split across 11 separate locations throughout the county.
What’s being named ‘Remote Working Hubs’, applications opened from 17 May. They offer the chance provided to work in Donegal throughout the summer until 30 September 2022.
The Council says this allows you to make the most of all the Tir Chonaill county has to offer while working from the space of your new digital hub.
The Remote Working Hub – the new way to work
Donegal became the first council in Ireland to adopt a Remote Working Strategy for Business last year in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the county has since developed an extensive hub network.
It offers workers the chance to balance a committed and dedicated work life with the offerings of the stunning Donegal coastlines, mountains, forest parks, and landscapes. Indeed, the county is renowned for its natural beauty, more so in the summer months.
Cllr Martin McDermott, Leas Cathaoirleach (Vice-Chair) of the Donegal County Council, said that this “provides the opportunity to promote Donegal nationally and internationally as an ideal location for remote workers”, and this “remote working holiday is testament to this”.
Where can you work? – setting up shop in Donegal
There are a total of 11 ‘Remote Working Hubs’ across County Donegal that are participating in this scheme. These are scattered across a range of famous locations throughout Tir Chonaill.
The participating hubs are located in the following areas: Bundoran, Letterkenny, Termon, Dunfanaghy, Derrybeg, Kilcar, Arranmore, Carndonagh, and Stranorlar.
For example, if you choose to work in Derrybeg in Gaoth Dobhair, you will be based out of gteich @ Gaoth Dobhair. This is only 14-minutes from Mount Errigal, and 25-minutes from Glenveagh National Park.
Elsewhere, if you choose Dunfanaghy, you will be based at the Donegal Famine Heritage Centre. There are four sites in Letterkenny, while you will work from the Bundoran Community Centre in Bundoran. This is only an hour from Slieve League and two minutes from the Bundoran Beach.
