Dublin is a city that is known for its rich history, vibrant culture, and friendly people. However, it’s also a city that has become a hub for technology and innovation. This makes it the perfect place from which to grow our tech PR agency as it keeps us close to the beating heart of all this exciting action.
There are seven key reasons why we firmly believe that Dublin is the ideal location for our technology PR and digital agency:
1. A thriving tech scene
Dublin is home to some of the world's biggest tech leaders, including Google, Facebook, and PayPal. It’s also jam packed with exciting Irish technology companies from fast-growing AI specialists like Idiro to global HR tech leaders like Workhuman.
This means that there’s a thriving B2B and consumer tech scene in the city, with many startups and established tech companies driving global growth and innovation on our doorstep.
2. Access to top talent for a tech PR agency
The city has a highly educated workforce, with many universities and colleges offering the highest quality courses in technology, marketing, journalism and public relations.

Similarly, Dublin PR companies like Comit can tap into this diversity. They can also work with global clients from different cultures and backgrounds, and use their knowledge and expertise to help these clients to reach their target audiences.
4. A thriving media industry
In Ireland, we’re privileged to have such a thriving network of traditional and new media outlets. From national media such as the Irish Times, Irish Independent, Business Post and RTE, through to highly informative tech news sites such as TechCentral, Irish Tech News and Silicon Republic, they all place a significant emphasis on technology news and innovation. Editors and journalists, most of whom are based in Dublin, are always very approachable when sharing exciting tech news and updates.
Furthermore, these publications are read by millions of people - not only in Ireland - but also across the world. This provides media relations agencies like Comit with the ability to deliver relevant client news to global audiences.
5. A supportive business environment
Ireland has a highly supportive business environment, with many initiatives in place to help startups and tech companies to grow. It has a wide range of practical and financial supports in place, with a particular emphasis on research, development, and innovation funding for high potential tech companies with global growth potential. Government agencies such as the IDA and Enterprise Ireland have incredible success in supporting multinationals and indigenous companies respectively.
More specialised support is provided by organisations such as Furthr who can deliver the investment and know-how to really supercharge growth opportunities for start-ups in Dublin and throughout Ireland. Having such a supportive ecosystem in place is great news for PR companies specialising in tech, who can also guide their clients in the right direction to take advantage of these supports.

Dublin is a very friendly and welcoming city, with a strong sense of community. Once work is finished, the city offers a vibrant nightlife with many wonderful bars, restaurants and entertainment venues, making it a great place to build strong relationships, both personally and professionally.
