BuzzQuarter opens for digital entrepreneurs in Tipperary


Local Enterprise Office Tipperary is embarking on an exciting new partnership with Limerick Institute of Technology, Tipperary County Council and Enterprise Ireland to deliver a unique enterprise facility for digital media related enterprises.

‘BuzzQuarter’ is the first step in a series of initiatives that will be undertaken to stimulate and support digital entrepreneurs, early stage companies and existing creatives looking for a second centre location. The studio, which is located in Questum in Clonmel, will be the nucleus for a cluster of expertise, knowledge, talent and resources, identifying County Tipperary as a centre of excellence in the digital media space.

Funded under the Local Enterprise Office Competitive Fund Scheme 2015 – 2017, BuzzQuarter aims to support the creation and development of an ecosystem by offering digital space for fledgling micro-enterprises and established organisations within the gaming, digital media, creative media and animation sectors.

The state-of-the-art facilities have been modelled on similar world-class digital centres both in Ireland and abroad, with the result that start-ups and companies who choose to locate in BuzzQuarter can enjoy services such as:

  • desk space
  • specialist hardware and software
  • meeting spaces
  • skills development
  • public relations opportunities
  • industry links
  • high-speed broadband within a unique co-working environment.


“Digital creative industries are growing at a phenomenal rate worldwide” said Rita Guinan, Head of Enterprise of LEO Tipperary.


She added: “BuzzQuarter is the first step in a range of initiatives to build capacity and to facilitate the development of a regional cluster in this sector. The creative digital sector in Tipperary is one that has huge potential to grow, generating world-class enterprises, while creating highly skilled jobs.”

The project was funded under the Local Enterprise Office Competitive Fund Scheme 2015 – 2017. Research was undertaken in 2017 by Ciaran Lynch, Community Engagement Partners, Tipperary County Council and Local Enterprise Office staff who identified the opportunity to create a digital hub and corridor between Clonmel and Thurles.
