Recently refurbished Dublin 2 Harcourt centre is in a modern building in the heart of the city's business district. Dublin is an international base for multinational technology firms, including internet service companies, and is home to many financial institutions. The area has many business support companies, including professional advisers and banks. There are nine bank branches within the Dublin 2 business district alone, all a short distance from the centre and some already occupy space at Harcourt. The capital has always fostered a strong entrepreneurial spirit; the growing number of business networking groups that meet within the vicinity of Harcourt is testament to this. The centre is close to transport and a wide range of amenities.
