Danny Boy’s Is Hiring!: Due to a change in circumstances, we are looking for someone to take over the day-to-day running of the bar. I have new work commitments mon-fri day time, and Martina needs to spend more time at home with our little fella.
Danny Boy’s will continue as it is, and we will be there for karaoke, raffle nights, music sessions, pool league and all the cool stuff:)) We need someone now to handle the bar, opening and closing, stock control, and other bar duties as necessary.
Essential criteria:
-Some experience in the bar/hospitality trade.
-Friendly, welcoming and hospitable work ethic.
-Ability to work under pressure when busy, and patience when not busy.

-Positive attitude. Must have a positive and friendly manner. Danny Boy’s is all about our customers, and is a friendly and sociable community bar. We expect the right person to embrace this and engage with our customers in a genuine and pleasant manner.
