We will be operating on a pre-booking basis only.
We will have dedicated hours for studying and work.
Our rates will be on a per hour basis with amended rates for some time.
Please get in touch with us via facebook or email to enquire about your visit
Absolutely loved the place and the people... I wish that every city had a space like this. The space is awesome but the sense of community and welcome is what made is special.
Great hidden gem! A home away from home. Plenty of rooms to chill in and play games. Pop in and pay them a visit, you won’t be disappointed!
Our Main Room - more like Living Room! - is the heart of The Clockwork Door, where you will find a whole stack of board games, including Irish monopoly, Munchkin, Cluedo and lots of other popular games. The Main Room is also where most our events take place. We have a stage for guest speakers, really comfy couches and even a guitar. We are always looking for more event hosts and speakers, so if you want to organize a gaming club or put on a comedy performance, for example, drop us a line!
