We work with a national and international client base. Our many years of experience means we approach each project not only as interior designers but from the client's viewpoint where we try to maximise the client's return on investment. We take the layout of the building and ensure that we are getting the maximum commercial use of the building. We do this by ensuring we understand the stakeholders’ interests, our client's needs and matching those to the target market. Over the years we have done this for corporate entities, SME clients and family run businesses. Whether you are considering purchasing a premises or repurposing an existing one, we have the experience to help you achieve your goals.

Our story

Angela Murphy Design Associates Limited, AM Design, was established in 1994 in Bray, County Wicklow, by Angela Murphy. Since then Angela and her team have been providing authentic Irish and traditional designs for successful publicans in a wide variety of venues throughout Ireland and worldwide. 
AM Design is specialises in providing design and fit-out services to the pub and hospitality industry with a particular focus on traditional Irish pub design. We deal with renovations of existing buildings, development of extensions and also new build projects.  We work on pub, hotel and restaurant design and fit-out projects throughout Ireland as well as in Europe, North America and Asia.
Good design is a key factor to the ambiance and success of a premises. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and providing successful design solutions that stand the test of time. 
Many of our projects involve development of historical buildings and heritage interiors. Authentic design, details, materials, fittings and bric-a-brac constitute some of the key components of the success of our projects.  We keep extensive stocks of salvaged materials, timber fittings, memorabilia and bric-a-brac, a highly-skilled workforce who can work with both old and new timbers and materials, who can restore existing buildings and interiors, redeveloping a wide variety of buildings to suit up to date requirements. 
Each project is unique. We work from an initial brief with our clients through the process of building and locations survey, review of market development potential, to the design process. This is followed by implementation of design, building, renovation and fit-out, all the way through to its final completion.  We’re passionate about achieving the best for each development and take great pride in seeing many of our projects appear in films, books, calendars, advertising campaigns, postcards, etc.


Collaborating design with key crafts people, specialist trades people and builder contractors is a key element in providing successful design solutions.
Angela takes a particular interest in developments in the tourism, cultural, hospitality and entertainment industries. The AM Design team strive to retain the best aspects of our heritage and historical buildings and features, developing these to best effect for contemporary developments, meeting current and future market demands.
