We’re pleased to welcome a new local company into Dingle Hub’s co-working space in recent weeks. Dingle Global Education (DGE) was founded by Seán Pól Ó Conchúir and Lenka Bardakova in 2021. They develop and run study-abroad programmes here in Dingle. Their main market is American Third Level institutes and they’ve just welcomed their first delegation last week.
Twenty students who attend Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia are based on the Dingle Peninsula for a month. Their educational programme has been designed by DGE to focus on Irish Literature, Folklore, and Music. Corca Dhuibhne is an ideal location to dig into these areas. Their classes are being held in An Diseart, in the middle of Dingle town.
Seán Pól, from Ballydavid, had been working from home but found home-life distracting and so he decided to trial working from Dingle Hub. He hasn’t looked back since!
“Taking a desk at Dingle Hub was one of the best decisions I’ve taken this year; great facilities and team. But the best asset of all is the interaction with other businesses who also operate from here. You can feel the creative energy! It gives me such a lift and definitely increases my own creativity”
Seán Pól intends to continue working from Dingle Hub for the foreseeable. The next group DGE are arranging logistics for are from the University of Santa Cruz in California. Arriving in June, their focus will be on travel writing.
