Connecting the remote working world.
Ireland’s first remote working conference returns.
Last September, a group of people in a WhatsApp Group who wanted to see if remote working could help our communities ran an event. 30 communities pitched to host us and Tralee nailed it, catering for 150 people from remote workers, remote working companies, and community groups.
More than an event, it gave rise to fostering a community of 50+ communities across Ireland, and Europe!
Building Ireland's Remote Working Community
If you’re curious about remote, and specifically how this can help sustain communities, this is for you.
Grow Remote started from 20 people in a WhatsApp group of co-working managers, freelancers, nomads, remote workers and remote working companies. We believe that developing a community around remote working is key to building brilliant rural communities, and that Ireland has amazing potential for remote work opportunities across the country. We want to bring community groups, companies and workers together to enable our communities to thrive.

What our attendees had to say.
What Grow Remote was, was an excellent forum of speakers (including a guy from Microsoft in Seattle, who, of course, attend remotely via a conference call … and, yes, he was wearing pants when asked) from the leading remote employers, co-working spaces and remote workers themselves giving insight into the ‘remote’ market and their lessons learned.
And we’re doing it again.
This time in Tubbercurry, Sligo with another amazing lineup of international speakers.
We’ve grown into 4 countries since our first event (including Chapters in Portugal, Spain and the US), we’ve knocked down information barriers and crowd shourced best guides to remote work.
In Ireland’s first smart community, we’re bringing it all together. Individuals, companies and communities are learning about the benefits of remote working and so can you.
It’s the perfect place to continue the conversation around remote working, and we can’t wait for you to join our other attendees, chapter leads, members and partners for this event. Be there as we educate, debate and connect on everything remote working. Don’t miss out, join the conversation!

Want to experience rural life?
When your job can be anywhere, why not Sligo?
We’re hosting Grow Remote in Ireland’s first smart community, within the land of heart’s desire.
When remote can be anywhere, the stuff that matters is very local, it’s community. The school, the daily quality of life, the local cycling group or tech meetup – this is something so many rural towns can compete on, and as looks can be deceiving, it’s something you need to experience !
From kids care to activity packages and accommodation – extend your stay in Sligo to experience the freedom you can have, when you get that remote job !
