....completed to a high standard...
We would definitely recommend Deco-Furbish. We required sanding and painting the woodwork of a staircase and the painting of the walls and ceiling of a hallway. We found everyone we came into contact with at Deco-Furbish professional and respectful. The team of painters were efficient and tidy. The finished product is completed to a high standard. We are really happy with our new hall and stairs!

....reliable, considerate and on time...
I can recommend Deco Furbish without reservation. They were reliable, considerate and on time with both quotation and painting. The painters did a fantastic job especially considering how challenging one room was. They were friendly and helpful at all times and I am very happy with completed work.

....invested time in meticulously sanding, resurfacing...
Delighted to work with Joseph, Marion and their team to complete paint work for private office pods. They invested time in meticulously sanding, resurfacing, repainting and sealing the walls, windows and doors. If you are looking for a company to fix previous paintwork, to reinvent an old building, or to complete a new building. Much appreciated.
Rachel, MixCoworking, Clonakilty (Google Reviews)
Extremely efficient, neat & tidy, expensive but well worth it, they did an amazing job, particularly on the garage which was looking pretty 'grotty'. It has been brought back to its original state, overall extremely pleased and yes I would recommend Deco-Furbish Painters & Decorators.

....Deco-Furbish exceeded my expectations
Deco-Furbish were a dream to work with! The exterior of our house was dated, faded and the wooden cladding was close to tumbling down. No longer! I only asked that it finally looked clean but Deco-Furbish exceeded my expectations. The cracks were rendered, the wood was replaced and the walls were topped off with 2 shiny coats of their magic paint. Marion in the office is a hero and Joseph is a real straight shooter, which I appreciated. The painters were friendly and efficient and here at 8am sharp every morning. I will say they're not a budget option but worth every penny.

...delivered on time and on price with no hidden extras
Very professional company. Excellent painting service. I requested the entire painting of an interior of a 4 bed house. Excellent tradespeople who obviously take great pride in their work. It was delivered on time and on price with no hidden extras.

....house in exposed area
As our house is in an exposed area we reviewed in detail prior to booking any painter and after meeting with Deco-Furbish and reading their reviews we felt that we would be well looked after. From the initial first meeting we knew that we were dealing with professionals with high standards and that opinion was further confirmed once the work started. They arrived on the day arranged and got to work straight away, all work was neat and tidy and we are delighted with the final outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending Deco-Furnish.

...excellent quality finish
5* Service from Deco-Furbish. From the first conversation with Marion to meeting Joseph in person, the experience was great and very professional. If you want an excellent quality finish and a company that will show up when they say they will and on-time, look no further than Deco Furbish (They even arrived on-time during red alert storm Barra, which was not expected :) Thank you to Joseph, Marion, Rory and all your amazing team for providing a dream kitchen that has turned out even better than I thought.

...prepare our 100 year old town-house in Kinsale for sale
The Deco-Furbish team can do so much more than painting and decorating when you need it! We recently engaged with Deco-Furbish to prepare our 100 year old town-house in Kinsale for sale. The house had been rented for some time so it was tired and badly in need of a re-furbishment. Deco-Furbish took on the job and overcame many challenges in order to deliver re-invigorated property that kept its unique character while at the same time delivered a contemporary feel with all of the modern conveniences that we all have come to expect. I can honestly say that Deco-Furbish 'very significantly' increased the value of our property and made it very appealing to prospective buyers. In short, he made it an easy sell. I would highly recommend Deco-Furbish for bringing out the best in your property if you want to prepare it for sale
Kinsale, Audrey Grace (2nd review / newupon sale of the house)
....clean and meticulous
The Deco-Furbish team were a pleasure to deal with and utmost professionals in every aspect of the job from start to finish. Valuable, expert advice was offered at the colour choice stage. When working on site all painters were exceptionally clean and meticulous in covering pathways etc…. You would hardly know they were onsite from the quiet, orderly way they went about their business. I would definitely recommend Deco-Furbish to anyone looking to paint their house and will definitely be using them again in the future.
Kinsale, James K.
....take great pride in their work

...delivered on time and hassle free...
I would definitely recommend Deco-Furbish Painters and Decorators. Their quality of workmanship was exemplary and they had all necessary trades people on hand (tilers, plumbers, carpenters, electricians etc.) to deliver on time and hassle free. They run a great business that is underpinned by excellence and 'does what it says on the tin'.

...money very well spent
Deco-Furbish West Cork finished painting the outside of my house today. I would highly recommend them - they are extremely professional and it looks like they have done an absolutely terrific job for us. Joseph and Marion are both lovely to deal with and their painting crew were a pleasure to have around for the week. I think it is money that has been very well spent. If you are looking for the best, contact Deco-Furbish West Cork.

...work and products guaranteed for 5 years
We were extremely pleased with the finished product that Deco-Furbish achieved, even given the fact that the work was very much start / stop / start based on the poor weather conditions. The quality of the finish and fact that the work and products used are all guaranteed for 5 years was also a major factor in our decision to choose Deco-Furbish.
...immaculate attention to detail...
Joseph and his team have just completed the exterior decoration of our house. The entire process was extremely professional from initial contact, to scheduling appointments and completion of the work. The end result is of the highest standard with immaculate attention to detail and has transformed the property. We would highly recommend Deco-Furbish.

...very pleased with the finish...
Just had my house painted by Deco-Furbish Painter & Decorator and I am very pleased with the finish. From my first visit to their shop in Clonakilty where I met the team to the workmen on site I found them to be very professional and helpful. I would highly recommend this company .
Glanmire, B'Anne F. (Facebook Reviews)
...definitely worth the investment..
It is now 12 months since Deco-Furbish carried out extensive work on our 1930s farmhouse near the coast close to Ballydehob. Because the walls were built of mixed stone, aggregates and slate, we had cracking the outside of the walls and some damp and condensation problems inside the house. The work was carried out very professionally by Deco-Furbish in early 2019. Now in 2020, the outside of the house remains in excellent condition. The opening up and refilling of the numerous cracks, and application of special paints appears to have worked very well, and inside the house the damp staining of walls has disappeared. So I would say this was a job very well done and definitely worth the investment. House-owner, Skeaghanore, close to Ballydehob
...recommend their expertise and devotion to their trade...
Our property is located in a very exposed situation and we wanted a paint finish that would last for years. The colour of the original Acrylic render became faded having lost its color fastness due to the elements. We searched for a solution to help us recreate the original '' sharpness of design ''. After a lengthy deliberation , we chose DECO-FURBISH and their recommended Paint system called STO
And what a fabulous decision that was ....from start to finish the Deco-Furbish team worked relentlessly to achieve our goal. We would not hesitate to recommend their expertise and devotion to their trade, they are quite simply the best by a very long margin.
Many thanks again from a very happy customer!! (details on request)
....smooth and hassle-free, from start to finish
Deco-Furbish made the entire experience of refurbishing and painting the exterior of our detached house smooth and hassle-free, from start to finish. We were given honest advice and exceptional delivery from every member of their thoroughly professional team. We can't thank the Deco-Furbish team enough. The quality of their work and the materials they use are of the highest standard and well worth the investment. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
Bantry, Sean G.
Work was completed to a very high standard...
DecoFurbish have just completed internal paint work in my house. The work was completed to a very high standard, especially the timber work. Josef gave us excellent advice on colour choices at no extra cost. His attention to detail makes the high cost worthwhile. We would highly recommend DecoFurbish to potential customers.
Kinsale, Therese Culligan (see Google)
Workmanship, attention to detail and all round efficiency...
Deco-Furbish and the great team have just finished painting our kitchen which was badly in need of a makeover. I am delighted with the result and would recommend them for the workmanship, attention to detail and all round efficiency. Thanks again .
Kilbrittain, Mary G.
Surface defects and long cracks are now invisible...
Inviting Deco-Furbish to paint our 80 year old masonry house was a decision we are extremely happy with. The entire Deco-Furbish team were pleasant to deal with, kept us well informed, were hardworking and very neat. Friends, neighbours and strangers have commented on how the house now looks like new. Many surface defects and long cracks are now invisible, being filled with German made Sto products that allow expansion. Every inch of the exterior was gone over several times beginning with a strong waterblast, then cracks widened and deepened before the progressive layers of fillers and texture, then final coats were applied.
The wall facing the street around our garden was given the same treatment. They even painted our downpipe and original metal gate so the final finish was perfect. We did pay more than we normally would for a house paint, but felt it was more than justified by the superb quality of the refurbishment.
Clonakilty, Alison and Brian W.
Their attention to detail is impressive...
Our decision to contract Deco-furnish to paint the exterior of our house proved to be a wise move. Their attention to detail is impressive and the various preparation stages has resulted in an excellent finish. The choice of colours is extensive and the quality of the paint is superb. The team work well together and were accommodating when faced with our questions.
We are fortunate to have a such professional company available for projects within our community.
Rosscarbery, Mr. and Mrs. F.
...thorough and professional job
Very thorough and professional job. The finished color is rich and saturated - it looks fantastic. They worked extra hard to meet a deadline I had in spite of unrelenting rainy weather. Highly recommend Deco-Furbish team!
Rosscarbery, Kathi C.
Completed the work to an exemplary standard...
Superb job done at my property by Deco-Furbish. Property needed extensive repairs but as it's an old property I wanted to retain the character or the building. We had some issues along the way, most notably the weather. But the company strove to complete the work to an exemplary standard, despite the weather being against us. To say I'm delighted with the end product is an understatement. Very happy to recommend to other prospective customers. Gneeveguilla, Micheal D.
...preparation prior to painting was outstanding...
When you want a job done right look no further! We recently (Autumn 19) had the exterior of our house painted by Deco-Furbish, the finish is fabulous. The workmanship, care and attention to detail Joseph and his team took over the preparation prior to painting was outstanding. Marion’s assistance in selecting the color was extremely valuable and the result is beyond outstanding. A first class job from start to finish, we got a prompt response on requesting a quote, a very fair quote for the job and that’s what we paid. I would highly recommend Joseph, Marion and the team for your next project. Ballinhassig, Daniel O. (Google Reviews)
...finished with the highest standards
The Deco Furbish team were excellent throughout all the work to be done. Work was done exactly as promised and within the schedule proposed. Great advisers in terms of colors and material to use. Work was finished with the highest standards. They gave our home the final touch and it really made a difference. We would highly recommend Deco-Furbish and would choose them again when having to do more paint work.

Follow up review: The rain rinsed off the walls perfectly...
So delighted to get back to our Clonakilty home and find it looking immaculate thanks to the wonderful Sto paint job from Deco-Furbish in Clonakilty. The rain rinsed off the walls perfectly taking the usual black residue from local winter coal fires with it. No more scrubbing for me.
Three cheers! Alison and Brian (see Facebook)
Attention to detail was outstanding
Incredible decorators. Deco-Furbish have finished decorating my 250 year old house. (Dining room, hall, stairs and landing) Their attention to detail was outstanding. They must be the most patient men ever, the amount of preparation they had to do, so much sanding and filling!! Then came the painting. Absolute perfection and it included a very laborious job of stripping a huge staircase, painting 3 floors and a huge amount of fiddly windows. Inside and out! But they were always cheerful and a great crack to have around. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend.
Enniskeane, Angela T.(see Google reviews)
My walls look freshly plastered as a result of the prep work...
Outstanding. This painting company are really masters of their trade and I will definitely be using them again. My walls look freshly plastered as a result of the prep work and final finishing is blemish-less !! They really do hold themselves to the highest of standards. Thank you Joseph, Rory and Marion. I will be back!
Kinsale, Karen G.
I wanted the best: Deco-Furbish delivered.
Very happy I chose Deco-Furbish. From my initial contact to the completion of the project I found Marion and Josef to be honest, hardworking, diligent individuals, who take great pride in what they do and who really care about giving their clients value for money. These virtues permeate the Deco team - they did an outstanding job, bringing a tired, weather-beaten exterior back to life.
I wanted the best: Deco-Furbish delivered. Skibbereen Tragumna, Ciaran O'Neill
5 star all the way...
Our experience with Deco-Furbish has been 5 star all the way. Josef is a perfectionist and as such, our house has never looked so well. Absolute value for money.
Ballineen, Mary Cooper
Delivered exactly what they promised...
Deco Furbish delivered exactly what they promised. At the start, we were given good advice about colours, types of paint to use. There were several interior wall and woodwork issues to be dealt with (cracks, mapping, wood knots visible through original paint) and we now feel that we have a brand new house! There was really no interruption to our daily living, as the work was carried out during our working day, furniture seemed to not ever have been moved and the turnaround time promised was delivered. The accuracy of the work was outstanding - particularly noticeable where we had built in furniture painted. When the job was finished there was a walk- through with us to ensure that we were happy with the work (even the curtains had been hung back up) and safe to say that all was well. I would have no hesitation to deal with Deco Furbish again and recommend their service to others. Cork, Carmel O.
Great attention to detail...
The Deco-Furbish team recently painted the exterior of my house as well as all the boundary walls, capping and the gates. They showed great attention to detail and I am very happy with the end result. I would not hesitate to recommend Deco-Furbish. Dunmanway, Gretta H.

I had a great experience with Deo-Furbish, Painting Contractors. They gave me great advice throughout the project. The quality of the workmanship is excellent, the whole team were professional and efficient in completing the work from start to finish. The prospect of completing this large contract which consisted of two houses was daunting to me but they made everything very easy for me, even at short notice without hesitation. I would highly recommend Deco-Furbish Painting Contractors to any future prospective Clients.
Clonakilty, Maeve & John @ B&BMacLiam Lodge
We were delighted with the service and the excellent standard of work from Deco-Furbish and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them . As we were in the height of our busy season it was awkward and difficult for the boys to work but they quickly and efficiently got the job done with minimum business interruption . We love the finished product and actually don't feel the picture even does it true justice as the colour appears much richer in reality .

A superb job all round and we are extremely satisfied with the end results. A big thank you to the fantastic painters Paul and Rory super work and to Joseph 100 % perfection.
Reenascreena, Fam. John H.
Deco-Furbish have completed work, including restoration and decoration of our property, to a very high standard. Before painting the walls areas of the plaster surface had to be removed and then made good using a hi-tech flexible filling material as technically advised by their representative. This work was carried out to a high professional standard with remarkable cleanliness and attention to detail. Furnishings were carefully moved as needed. Advice was given on suitable colour matches and combinations of subtle shades for each room. Again the whole painting process was carried out with care and attention to cleanliness. The painting team moved and replaced all the furniture as required. The painters were always punctual so we could plan our own time around them. We would certainly have no hesitation in using them again for future projects.
Dunmanway, Mrs. Clare M.
Well it's a 10+. I'm delighted with the result. Joseph, Rory, Paul and Marion did a fantastic job. Efficiency, professionalism, perfection, great advice, friendly,honest.........A super result by a super team. Is Maith liom é, tá sé go hiontach.

West Cork, Elisabeth O.
"I found Deco Furbish on an online search of decorators in the area. I called around to different decorators but it was difficult to find someone who could do wallpapering. Deco Furbish answered my call promptly and called out to me the following day to give me a quotation of the job. The price they quoted was quite reasonable so I accepted the offer and the work started on site only a few days later. During the work some problems occurred which were completely unforeseen and most of the time out of our hands. Deco Furbish gave me constant updating on the situation and came up with different solutions on how to solve the problems. When we decided on the course of action Deco Furbish was quick to readjust and got on with the work. The work was done to my satisfaction, and the work site was left tidy and clean. During the work the decorators worked very quietly and were never in the way of a busy family life. I can highly recommend Deco Furbish.
Bandon, Catriona O'Donovan, Irish Country Music Singer
"We aimed to redesign our home implementing the color red in a stylish but still comfortable way, what we called a demanding task. The Deco-Furbish team advised us with brilliant design ideas and carried out the work highly accurate and competent. What we appreciated most about working with them was the well organized and hassle-free performance, keeping everyone happy and delivering the expected results. We have worked with Deco-Furbish on residential and commercial projects and are more than happy to recommend them at any time."
Dunmanway, Fam. Peter O. The Old School
"Having just moved into the area without any local contacts I found Deco-Furbish on the web. They quickly understood my predicament and visited the house that very evening. They explained the methods clearly in plain terms and of course the overall cost. With a key handed over, the team began work the next day and worked to a very difficult schedule. They do not accept second rate work and will not attempt to overlook even the smallest of areas. When queried, the item was explained and then quickly returned to the task at hand. The rooms received a deep clean leaving the surfaces, shelves & presses spotless. Also the windows were cleaned both inside and out. An excellent work ethic and great overall experience means Deco-Furbish will be my only call for future projects."
