Fumbally Exchange (FEx) is a not-for-profit movement of creative and innovative professionals who share work spaces, collaborate on client projects and support each other on the entrepreneurial adventure.

Across our locations, we are a community of design and innovation focused small businesses, sole traders and start-ups. Our aim is to cultivate an open, professional atmosphere for creative and regenerative growth.

At every FEx, businesses, individuals and entrepreneurs can come to:

  • Work
  • Share information and facilities
  • Research and test ideas
  • Build a honeycomb of contacts

Why the funny name?

Fumbally Exchange takes its name from its first location on Fumbally Lane in Dublin 8. Fumbally Exchange has evolved over time into a philosophy, a movement and an organisation.

More than co-working

We offer low-cost, low-risk, flexible business incubation, but we also offer much more than that.

What else do we do? As part of The Fumbally Manifesto, we aim to bring about:

  1. Urban regeneration
  2. Community consolidation
  3. Industry innovation
  4. Creative collaboration
