Consultancy Services


Operating since 2016, we have grown to become Ireland’s largest regional private coworking hub network.


Coworking Hub and Workspace Consultancy Services

Having both individually worked for many years with small businesses and the community and voluntary sector, Tom & Ken noticed a gap in the market to provide affordable and flexible office space in town centre locations, accessible to remote workers, FDI, SME’s and satellite teams.

With over 40 years combined expertise in communications, operations, business planning and development; Tom and Ken started Entàra Group (formerly HQKerry and Workbase) as they recognised the positive economic impact that coworking hubs can have on the wider community. In addition, they have shown through their own hubs how they they contribute to the rejuvenation of town centres.

Coworking hubs and Enterprise spaces are crucial factors in supporting balanced regional development, by attracting multi-national corporations and remote workers to locate in regional and rural centres. These hubs can provide excellent affordability, they engage communities, and they attract a highly educated and experienced workforce looking for an exceptional work/life balance. Coworking Hubs are driving regional economic growth in an era of a new revolution of work.

Now, following on from the foundation of their own network of hubs, Ken and Tom also use their expertise and experience to facilitate others in the planning, development and promotion of other coworking hubs, digital hubs, serviced office enterprise spaces and remote working centres across Ireland.


The development of coworking hubs and enterprise spaces supports economic development, job creation and retention; and provides an opportunity to attract people to live and work in regional areas.
