Kilkenny is a vibrant city with so many amenities nearby. We have found it a great place to bring customers over from the UK and introduce them to Irish culture, they always enjoy their time around our medieval city with so many great choices to dine and entertain; it always makes for a pleasant experience. We cannot wait to do this again when its safe.

Being part of Kilkenny Chamber has enabled us to work with and support other local businesses. We are fortunate to work with many great businesses within the county.
Like all businesses across Kilkenny, we have faced a challenging year. Our staff have been working from home and the demand for our products has increased as people renovate their bathrooms. With Brexit we have had to think fast, luckily we have the resources in place to continue to develop and grow.
