How to find bar jobs in Dublin

Finding work can be tough at the best of times, and it can be especially difficult in times of economic hardship. If you are looking for bar jobs in Dublin, these tips will help you to locate vacancies.

Look online

It's easy to start your job search online. The major job search websites, such as jobs.ie and nixers.com, list hospitality and bar jobs in Dublin and throughout Ireland. Another good place to start is with free ad sites, like Gumtree. Here you'll find job ads from employers for casual jobs - so if you're looking for a part time or temporary bar job, this is a good place to start.

Call in in person

However, many of the part time vacancies in bars never are advertised. If you want to be in with a chance of getting a job, you'll need to call into the bar in person. Bring your CV and an up to date cover letter in case you don't get to speak to the manager in person. There's no need to dress in a suit, but do ensure that you look neat and tidy. Ask to speak to a supervisor, and if none are available, call back at a time that suits them.

Some of the best places ti look in Dublin are independent hotels in the city centre, the tourist districts such as Temple Bar, and student areas like Rathmines. There are a good concentration of pubs and bars in these areas and there's a good chance of finding a vacancy.
