help us grow The Fumbally Stables

as a community focused,

food and cultural space

position: full time manager

The Fumbally Stables is one of only a handful of independent venues/multi-purpose spaces left in Dublin. With our roots firmly in food education, culture and community building, we are looking for someone who holds these three things close to their heart but also knows the realities of the hard graft of the hospitality and creative industries.

The Fumbally Stables has been evolving since its establishment in 2014 and we’ve thrown our hat at all kinds of everything over the years. We now balance our time between organising and running our own events, workshops, gigs and collaborations, facilitating hire enquiries from outside companies and hosting and cooking for private events.

The job is a hands-on role alongside our existing managers Jael and Anna, that will encompass both in-person hosting and event management as well as business generation, admin time and computer work. The position requires a lot of flexibility. Due to the diversity of bookings in the building, every week is different and you will need to have weekend availability.
