"Dublin Mail Drop announces surge in demand for virtual office services as Dublin office rents soar

Nestled away on the second floor of a quaint Georgian building, in prestigious Baggot Street in central Dublin, is a company called Dublin Mail Drop. It is a small company, but it is setting up alternative office space for hundreds of domestic and international clients seeking a business presence in Dublin.

Dublin Mail Drop provides its growing client base, professional virtual office services, an alternative to office rental in Dublin. It offers clients a range of services including a prestigious business address service in which they will receive your business mail at their address, live call answering and meeting room facilities at its Upper Baggot Street office.

Dublin office rents rose by 24% in the 12 months to June according to surveyors HWBC. They also expect a 20% rise this year, meaning that prime office rents in Dublin will have risen by over a third in the space of just 18 months.

The commercial property crash was even more severe than the housing market bust. Prime office rents in Dublin halved from €600 per square metre in 2008 to just €300 by 2012.

The report shows that prices for prime offices rose 10% in the first half of the year to €535psm and are forecast to reach €592psm by year end, prices not seen since the peak of the boom in 2008.

Alan Clerkin, founder of Dublin Mail Drop, announced, "since we’ve established in 2008 the business has grown steadily, however with office rents rising rapidly the past 18 months, services have seen a surge in demand".

“Startups are a particular fan of our virtual office services – as they get a prime office address for their company along with live receptionist, leaving them to concentrate of growing their business”.Alan Clerkin added.

“There are lots of companies in Dublin, renting office space they don't really require - Dublin Mail Drop's clients include small to large companies including airlines, IT consultants, medical firms, consultants and we are even in talks with a Government Department, who are seeking to establish a section of a Government Department at our office" Mr Clerkin added.

Looking out from Mr. Clerkin’s office window, one can see numerous building cranes on the horizon, reminiscent of previous boom times. It seems Dublin Mail Drop has a bright future in setting up virtual office space for its growing client base. Lets not forget to keep an eye out for any mention of a virtual Irish Government Department, in the near future.
