Almost half of the tenants renting in Dublin’s Silicon Docks are tech professionals from companies like Google, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

Overall, 92pc of the tenants in the area – which includes a huge stock of apartments targeted by tech workers – are not Irish born.

The data comes from the Docklands Residential Report 2018 just published by the Owen Reilly agency, which assists Dublin tech companies with lettings for employees.
