What we're about

TOG is a hackerspace based in Bluebell in Dublin. It is a shared space where members can have a place to be creative and work on their projects in an environment that is both inspiring and supportive of both new and old technologies. It is also a community of fellow minded hackers and makers with varied events for the public.
We have regular open events for visitors and these evenings are usually free to attend. They include lockpicking, coding, crafting, electronics, brewing, wikipedia editing and others. We hold a regular Open Social evening on about the 3rd Saturday of each month, when we just come in and hang out for the evening. We also collaborate on many external events like Repair Cafe and DublinMaker.
Come and visit. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour of the space. Talk to members and visitors about projects or things you’d like to do. If you like what you see, ask about joining as a full member. Membership gives you 24/7 access to the space and all it's facilities, which includes 3D printers, laser cutter, workshop, classrooms with seating and projectors and a fully kitted out electronics lab. We also have eating and cooking facilities and off-street parking. There is also a great community spirit with ongoing community events.
To join us as a member, get to know us, then feel free to sign up for membership using our online form or ask for more information from any of our members.

Feel free to drop in for any of the listed events, or just drop a mail to info@tog.ie to find out when we are open for a look around.

Online only Wikipedia Editing evening

Link visible for attendees

Ever wondered how to get started editing Wikipedia?

Join us online and we will get you adding to the world’s largest open collaborative knowledge project. All are welcome, no editing experience is necessary.

Any level of Wikimedia/Wikipedia editing experience is welcome. This is not a formal workshop, but an informal evening with an experienced Wikimedia editor on hand to help!

If Wikipedia isn’t to your taste, you can learn how to edit the huge linked database Wikidata, or add images to Wikimedia Commons.

The event starts at 7pm and ends at 9pm on Discord.

TOG Grand Re-Opening

Needs a location

We are delighted to announce our grand re-opening. It's been a long road this last two years. A lot has happened in that time. We've moved to a new space in Bluebell and we have been running many of our regular evening events online.

During Covid, we've missed a couple of birthday parties, umpteen Open Socials and so many of our other regular open events. It’s time now to breakout and have one monster re-opening bash. Come along on Saturday 28th May. The fun kicks off about 7PM. Spread the word..... tell all your friends and colleagues. Expect food, birthday cake of course, and whatever else we can rustle up. Bring beer, food, gadgets yourself!

If you’ve never been to the space, we'll be delighted to give you a tour. It's still a work in progress, but that's part of the fun of running a hackerspace. We get to build exactly what we want. If you would like to get even more involved and have the full use of our space, we would be delighted to have you as a full member. Membership brings many benefits. TOG has no funding apart from our amazing members monthly subs, so you could really help to keep a roof over our head by getting involved and joining us.

We are located behind Mr Price and the Bright Lights store on Kylemore Road. There is lots of parking available.

Electronics Night

Needs a location

This is our regular Monday evening electronics nights. The space and our electronics room is still a work in progress.

These evenings are free to attend for members and visitors alike. No booking is necessary, just turn up. Everyone from absolute beginner to experienced is welcome. These evenings are not classes or tutorials, rather a very friendly informal evening.

We have a wide range of people who come. Some are absolute beginners who do not even work or study in these areas but are interested to know more. Others have something that they are already working on. We almost always have some first time visitors and we always give them a tour of the space.

Come in with your Pi, Arduino, or whatever you have. Bring your laptop. Maybe you want to make something, solder, breadboard or use our electronic gear. Maybe you have some vague ideas and just want to get started, but you’re not sure how to. Or maybe you’re just curious……if so, it’s fine to come along and just see what others are doing. Hope to see you on the night.

If you would like to get even more involved and have the full use of our space, we would be delighted to have you as a full member. Membership brings many benefits.
