|The Boiler House|
The Rediscovery Centre is located in the repurposed Boiler House in Ballymun.
The building has undergone a major green revamp and it is now a state of the art facility with a focus on sustainability and reuse. It is perfect for meetings that require a unique setting and that have a focus on sustainability and the protection of the environment.
The facilities in our centre are suitable for conferences, workshops, meetings, team building events and exhibitions.
The Rediscovery Centre is an accredited Discover Primary Science and Maths centre.
Our education team offer interactive and experiential workshops for primary, secondary, and third level students which cover wide ranging environmental and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) topics. The Centre’s translational research activities support national waste prevention and climate action policy and advocate for a more resilient and equitable society.
The Rediscovery Centre is also home to a unique Eco Store located on the first floor. The Eco Store sells sustainably made products from over 20 independent Irish suppliers and from our own reuse social enterprises.
The Rediscovery Centre has opened a best-in-class eco store at our HQ in Ballymun. The Eco Store is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday. Reuse products are available in the shop – a collection built from Rediscover products and other Irish producers whose products exemplify a reuse or sustainability ethos in line with the overall project.
