What we're about

TOG (http://www.tog.ie) is a hackerspace based in Dublin City Centre. 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 some 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.

Electronics, Microcontroller and IOT Evening

Tog Hackerspace

It's our regular Electronics, Microcontroller and IOT evening once again. 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, Galileo 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.
