It’s been a while since I’ve been on the road, so I decided to take the opportunity of visiting family in Belfast to also check out the tech scene in Northern Ireland. As a resident member of the Isle of Man Eagle Lab, I was warmly welcomed by the management team of Ormeau Baths and the Eagle Labs Belfast.

Tech Space

Housed in the historic former bath house in the centre of Belfast, the local tech community has turned the space into a co-working hub and entrepreneurial campus. The architecture is really unique and has been leveraged in many interesting ways to set modern workspace demands in a retro frame with respectfully vintage styling and decor.

The space is littered with interesting facilities, including an abundance of co-working spaces, shared offices, private offices, meeting spaces, presentation suites, private booths, and an innovative VR suite hosted by Immersion Labs.

Special thanks to Lisa Bailie, Claire, Emma, and the team for such a warm welcome and introduction to so many of the resident members. It’s really inspiring to connect with new people and I’m looking forward to returning before long!
