About Us


The Rediscovery Centre is a creative space connecting people, ideas and resources for greener living in Ireland.

As the National Centre for the Circular Economy, we bring together the skills and expertise of artists, scientists, designers and craftspeople united in a common purpose of sustainability.  Located in a bespoke demonstration eco-facility, we support four reuse social enterprises; Rediscover Furniture, Rediscover Fashion, Rediscover Paint and Rediscover Cycling. These businesses use waste materials for new product development & design demonstrating effective resource efficiency, reuse and low carbon living.

The Rediscovery Centre is an accredited Discover Primary  Science and Maths centre offering interactive and experiential workshops for primary, secondary, and third level which cover wide ranging environmental and STEM topics. The centre’s  translational research activities support national waste prevention and climate action policy and advocate for a more resilient and equitable society.

We also offer a fantastic event venue and meeting space in north Dublin.


The Rediscovery Centre is located at The Boiler House, Ballymun Road, Ballymun, Dublin 9, D09 HK58. The Centre is open Monday to Friday until the 23rd of February and then Monday to Saturday for the remainder of 2019. The opening times for the Centre are 9am to 5pm.

The Centre is based in the repurposed Boiler House in Ballymun which was developed as a prototype ‘3D textbook’ a new concept in experiential learning and the first of its kind in Europe. The centre demonstrates best practice building design, construction and operation and defines the building and environs as an educational tool to effect positive behavioural change with respect to resource management and efficiency.
