About this site

Wtf is this?

Trying to work is a collection of spaces to work online as a digital nomad or online worker in Belfast, Dublin and London (with more cities coming).

It's a side-project born from a freelancer's frustrations of trying to find decent places to work online when out and about in local city centres.

Often I would get to a coffee shop, order, sit down to work and then discover that the WiFi speed sucks, or worse, doesn't work at all! So I decided to start cataloging local spaces and their wifi speeds to share with fellow remote workers and digital nomads. And so, Trying To Work was born.
