Fumbally Exchange (FEx) is a not-for-profit movement of creative and innovative professionals who share co-working spaces. We currently have three hubs: Dublin city centre, Balbriggan (North County Dublin) and Waterford city centre – and more are on the way.


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.


Fumbally Exchange is operating in three fantastic refurbished buildings, each one contributing to innovation, urban renewal and economic resurgence.

We want to see more and more FExes springing up around Ireland. All a FEx needs to be successful is a suitable premises, an enlighted landlord and an enthusiastic group of positive, experienced or emerging entrepreneurs who are willing to get to work.


Our members can use the events and exhibition spaces in Fumbally Exchange (FEx) locations to run exhibitions, workshops, talks, receptions, pop-up shops or any other sort of event they might imagine.
