Welcome to Cooney Decorating

We are one of Corks longest established painting and decorating contractors. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with the highest possible level of service and craftsmanship using only the best quality materials and the best tradespeople. We will transform your home or business premises, taking care to ensure thorough preparation before any paint leaves the tin and we will always leave your property perfectly clean and tidy on completion.

We use only the highest quality products as this allows us to stand over our work, giving both our customer and ourselves peace of mind. DuluxColourtrend, Johnstones premium range, Farrow & BallZoffany and Crown are some of our preferred products. Many painting contractors in the painting business today use inferior products as it increases their slim profit margin, we will never do this.

We are upfront with our pricing, we put everything in a written quotation, and will include for everything to ensure a perfect paint job.

We will not attempt to charge you extras halfway through the job or when the job is done, unless of course you would like some additional work to be done in which case we will gladly quote you.


Beware of painting contractors offering a verbal price only or a written price which is lacking detail, you could end up having to pay dearly for extras which you had expected were included.

We are wallpapering experts having gained a wealth of experience over the years hanging wallpaper in hotels, banks and in many fine period homes throughout Cork city and county. We are comfortable working with quality wallpaper such as ZoffanyHarlequinFarrow & BallTekturaLaura Ashley and Designers Guild.

We have many years of experience in the area of painting and decorating and all our tradespeople are registered and insured and all our work is personally supervised and guaranteed. We are members of both the Master Painter and Decorators of Ireland (MPDI) and Construction Industry Federation (CIF) and we always ensure to keep up to date with all developments in our areas of expertise. 

If you would like a quotation for your decorating project – be it a few rooms to be re-decorated at home or complete decoration of a Hospital, Hotel or Office Block. We have over 70 years experience so give us a call now in our Cork office on 021 4274886 or at 086 2217517.
