Not sure if these are what you are listing but
DCU Invent Centre
UCD Nova Centre
Just to say they have incubation space in Dundalk and Drogheda but you are a bit away from the network and supports in drogheda.

I graduated from the 2002/2003 Genesis program in Cork. Extremely useful. Genesis has developed a lot since themn and is now housed in an impressive building on the CIT campus.
I manage Create Digital Media EPP for Institute of Art, Design & Technology. Digital Media is our focus and we have desk space in Depot and Media Cube in Dun Laoghaire. I’ll recruit pretty soon for summer start date. Fred
