Get ready for an exciting gathering of mechanical keyboard aficionados at Tog Hackerspace on Saturday, April 20th, 2024, starting at 3 pm. Whether you’re a seasoned keyboard veteran or just dipping your toes into the world of mechanical switches, this meetup is for you!
Address: Unit 1B Motor City, Kylemore Road, Dublin 12, D12 CF6V
If you would like to donate and support this meet up register through our Eventbrite page. Your generous donations will contribute to the success of future meetups and allow us to continue fostering a vibrant community of mechanical keyboard enthusiasts. A ticket is not required but it helps us plan.
Join us for an afternoon of keyboard exploration, where you can:
Keyboard Showcase: Bring your prized keyboards or simply come to admire the diverse range of setups on display. From vintage classics to custom builds, there’s something for everyone to marvel at.
Hands-On Experience: Test out different switches, keycaps, and layouts. Feel the tactile feedback, listen to the satisfying clicks, and discover which combination suits your typing style best.
Community Connection: Engage in lively discussions with fellow enthusiasts. Share your experiences, seek advice on your next build, or simply geek out over your favourite keycap profiles.
But wait, there’s more! After the meetup wraps up at 7 pm, stick around for Tog Hackerspace’s monthly Open Social Night. It’s the perfect opportunity to unwind, mingle with other members of the Tog community, and enjoy some refreshments.
You can also watch our own long-form video where we reflect on Tog in its current and former setting and talk a bit about what’s going on in our hackerspace.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to our member Morten Jakobsen for putting this video together. If you’d like to support him please give a follow on his socials. Links are on his website at jakeobsen.com

We are delighted to participate in Culture Night on the 23rd of September. Join a tour to find out what projects and technologies Tog works with. There will be demos of fabrication equipment such as 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, and our CNC’s. During the night you can also try your hand at an electronics project with Arduino or Raspberry Pi or for something completely different learn some lock picking. Listen to brewers describe how they manage to create the perfect beer or the crafts group on their creations. Tog encapsulates all of the maker movement with its many facets but most of all it’s a movement that everyone can take part in.
We are delighted to announce our grand reopening. It’s been a long road these last two years. A lot has happened in that time. We’ve moved to a new space in Bluebell and we have been running many of our regular evening events online. During Covid, we’ve missed a couple of birthday parties, umpteen Open Socials and so many of our other regular open events. It’s time now to breakout and have one monster re-opening bash. Come along on Saturday 28th May. The fun kicks off at about 7PM. Spread the word….. tell all your friends and colleagues. Expect food, birthday cake of course, and whatever else we can rustle up. Bring beer, food, gadgets yourself!
If you’ve never been to the space, we’ll be delighted to give you a tour. It’s still a work in progress, but that’s part of the fun of running a hackerspace. We get to build exactly what we want. If you would like to get even more involved and have the full use of our space, we would be delighted to have you as a full member. Membership brings many benefits. TOG has no funding apart from our amazing members monthly subs, so you could really help to keep a roof over our head by getting involved and joining us.
We are located behind Mr Price and the Bright Lights store on Kylemore Road. There is lots of parking available.
