"Con and his team’s vast experience in the conservation of the Victorian panelling, resulted in restoring the wainscoting  of Kevin St Library to its former glory. It was a pleasure to see craftsmen working with such informed expertise, care and attention. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Con, Pauric and their team again".

“I have known and worked with CPD Quality Decorators on and off for the past 17 years, in both the Pharmaceutical and the Health sector. CPD Quality Decorators have always proved to be reliable, honest, trustworthy and professional. Where I have used them in the Pharmaceutical industry their work has been critical to how our business works as ensuring that there is no contamination  of the areas or produce is critical to the success of our business. In the Health sector I have used CPD in Our Lady's Childrens Hospital Crumlin where is is imperative that their work and behaviour must be at its highest standard and again they have excelled to the highest forms of professionalism.

CPD staff are always professional,highly skilled, easy to work with, and always Qualified for the Job that they are hired to do and I am looking forward to many more years of working together"


John Robinson - Project Manger, Our Ladys Childrens Hospital Crumlin

“Being an English company working in Dublin to complete a project for a high profile client we inherited Con and his merry band of men and had to ask them to start all over again to a different spec. Lead by Con’s incredible knowledge of subtle colour combinations, mixed in his own workshops, our demanding client soon relaxed and was guided by his choices and achieved not only a very high quality of finish but something very pleasing to the eye. We would recommend Con and his workforce for any size of project and wish them all success in the future”

“We appointed Con to finish a contemporary house by the sea in limewash.  It was essential to have someone as experienced as Con and his team for the specification, preparation and application of such a beautiful finish.  The craft and care taken in painting the house is still evident today, 12 months on. I would not hesitate in recommending Con for future projects and look forward to working with him again soon.”

“As an Interior Designer, one of our main concerns is to find good, skilled and reliable trades to work with. Our work is only great, if our co workers perform well and we all work well together. I have worked with Con Farrell on a few projects, one being a large and important Regency house in Ireland. There was a serious amount of restoration involved before we could get to grips With the actual interior finishes. Con carried out his part of the restoration and preparation work with passion, dedication and great skill. This took some considerable time, due to the amount of work to be carried out, and this did not phase him at all. Then our work getting to the final decorating stage was fascinating to do. Con has great knowledge of the historic colours, and his abilityto hand mix the paints to the exact tones of what was required was magical. We also worked on some glaze painting work, which he applied wonderfully. The end result was exactly what wewanted to achieve and the clients were so pleased and hugely appreciative of his work and skills.”
