Angela has extensive experience in traditional Irish pub design and historical building restoration. She’s an honours graduate of the College of Marketing and Design, now TU Dublin, having specialised in Furniture and Interior design. She formed her design practice in 1994 in Bray, County Wicklow and since then has carried out a wide range of designs for traditional Irish pubs, restaurants and hotel projects throughout Ireland, Europe, North America and Asia.
She’s proud to have played a key role in the Guinness Irish Pub development that brought the Irish pub concept around the world and continues to work with clients on a variety of projects providing successful design solutions.
She has travelled extensively throughout Ireland documenting historical buildings, details, heritage interiors and traditional shopfronts. Previously Angela also spent enjoyable years working for Kilkenny Design Workshops in Kilkenny, Roberts Weaver International Design in London and Gustav Sauter Architects in Killarney and Wicklow.
“I enjoy taking projects from start to finish, creating an interior from a blank piece of paper to a building that's jam-packed with people laughing and enjoying their surroundings,” says Angela, “it’s also really rewarding to return years later and find it still trading successfully, often with only a fresh coat of paint or new upholstery changed. It’s always my goal to create an investment for my clients that will stand the test of time, a pub that will mellow and improve with age, that works commercially from both the staffing or service point-of-view and also from the customer’s point-of-view.”
