wallpaperingAfter a major extension & renovation project on our house we contracted Tony Fogarty to paint & decorate the whole house.
Tony’s work was of a very high standard & he was maticulous in his detail in repairing & finishing any imperfections left by the builders leading to a perfect end result. Tony was trustworthy, punctual & communicated well, taking careful time & consideration as well as giving excellent advice whilst still listening to our preferences, to ensure the paint & materials chosen were suitable & would do justice to their surroundings.
Tony is a first class experienced, wallpaper hanger also, taking a passionate interest in his work & often coming up with innovative suggestions as solutions to tricky situations.
Tony’s total committal to thoughtfulness, diligence & cleanliness on every front throughout the entire time he spent working in our home made it very easy for our family to live & work alongside.
I would fully endorse & recommend Tony as a decorator.

Tony came to my house in Dun Laoghaire to hang my gorgeous Orla Kiely wallpaper.  I have wallpapered before myself but was afraid to ‘have a go’ at this job as the paper was expensive and the angles were not straight forward.  All I can say is that Tony’s work is complete perfection.  He is the ultimate professional arriving with all the right equipment in decorator overalls ready for the job in hand. I would recommend him highly for any decorating job.

Put simply, I have one number in my phone under painter and decorator, that’s Tony Fogarty..

Tony Fogarty and his hard working team achieved a complete transformation of my high Victorian hall and living room back to their former glory.

No crooked corner or damaged surface was too much of a challenge. Tony was also very willing to spend time on the difficult task of choosing colour schemes to suit both the nature of this 1845 home and my taste. A really neat and very professional job was done and all within the time span and price estimate given.

I would not hesitate in recommending Tony Fogarty for any painting or papering projects. In particular I would recommend them for the difficult tasks that appear to be tough propositions but turn out to be just part of the routine for this team.

I write to recommend the professional painting and decorating services of Tony Fogarty, but in particular his expertise in hanging wallpaper.

Our house is a Victorian built redbrick and on first sight is a fine house.  However, it throws up a lot of problems when making changes, improvements and refurbishments.
As with many houses of its age, there is not one smooth surface, not one right angle.

Buildings such as these require a specialist eye and specific knowledge to get the most out of works to be done, not least in the area of redecoration.  The dimensions of rooms, ceiling heights, windows and built in structures such as fireplaces must all be considered in relation to each other, in relation to selecting soft materials and motifs of same, and particularly in relation to colour selection for painted surfaces.

Tony has been in this business for many years, and his confidence and expertise reflect this, but critically he has a passion for his work and great attention to detail.  He assessed the site and discussed all possibilities, so I knew where I stood, and he offered great advice in relation to critical choices I had to make re soft materials.  It was a challenge to hang wallpaper in such a way as to virtually eliminate the structural shortcomings of the house, and to do it within our budget, but the outcome is testament to his professional abilities and good taste.

I would recommend Tony to anyone considering redecoration works.  He is honest, personable and he does a great job.

Put simply, Tony Fogarty is a first class painter. Apart from using him in my own home on many occasions, I have recommended him to family, friends and business contacts and Tony has always impressed. The quality of his work is outstanding. His knowledge of colour and design means that he often gives a free design service as part of the package. His professionalism insures that there is no mess and the work is always completed on time.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Tony to anyone who requires a painter for residential or commercial projects.

During the period, October-January 2011, Tony Fogarty worked for me at the above address as a painter/decorator.

He did extensive work on both the outside and inside of the house. He has a good knowledge of required products, offered good advice and had many creative ideas. He was fastidious in repairing and cleaning before beginning the actual work and thankfully left no mess; everything cleaned and tidied at the end of each day. His painting was excellent.

Another benefit being that it is quite safe to leave Tony access to the house in your absence. He has a very pleasant, business-like manner.

I have no hesitation in recommending him and his painting/decorating business.

Tony Fogarty completed a significant painting job in our school this term. He did an excellent job.  Tony was extremely professional in all his dealings with the school, was extremely reliable, completed the work on time and was very competitively priced.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Tony for any painting work and our school will certainly seek to use him in the future.

Tony Fogarty has worked for us on a request basis over the last 2 years. In that time, he has undertaken a large-scale painting project – 6 outdoor courtyards and all external window frames – and various small to medium projects. We found his expertise invaluable particularly in areas such as wood and metal which had degraded due to a lack of regular maintenance.
On all projects, Tony has been punctual and efficient and has undertaken all tasks with minimum disruption to our tenants. He is friendly and communicative and we have been able to trust him with running tasks end-to-end.
Tony has generally been able to adhere to projected costs and where there was a need for an over-run, he came to us and rationalised it beforehand.
He has experience working in apartment complexes and this was to our advantage. We hope to be able to use his services on future projects
We would recommend him for similar works.


Tony Fogarty has completed painting and decorating work both internal and external on our properties. He is very particular in his finish and all of his work is of a very high standard. Tony is most obliging and no job is too small and always at competitive rates.

We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him.

Aidan and Marie Burke,

“Tony Fogarty has done a substantial amount of work for me painting both the exterior and interior of my home.  The exterior work involved painting the walls and painting/refurbishing wooden windows, using a cherry picker to paint the third storey.  Tony also hand painted my wooden kitchen cabinets. All work was completed on time and in a clean and tidy manner.

Tony is both friendly and courteous and I am very pleased with the result.  I would warmly recommend Tony to anyone and will certainly call him in the future.”

Drumnigh Wood, Portmarnock

Tony and his team painted the external woodwork and masonry of our home.  This was quite a complex job that many painting contractors were unwilling to take on board.  We found him to be very reliable and a pleasure to deal with.  In particular the standard of his workmanship has very high, we are extremely happy with the standard of finish on our home and with the care and attention to detail given to completing the work.

 We would have no hesitation in using Tony in the future or recommending him to others.


Tony worked for us during the summer as we set up our new business premises in Powerscourt Townhouse Centre. He was extremely efficient and listened to our thoughts regarding design and how best to implement our vision for the space. He is courteous, reliable and professional, paying great attention to detail.  We were delighted with the end result. I would highly recommend him to anyone as he is clearly very experienced with a great amount of skill.

claire-wildeI am delighted to recommend Tony Fogarty. Tony recently decorated my living rooms which involved wallpapering the alcoves.  It was a joy to watch the skill and dexterity with which he approached the papering.   We were thrilled with the final result with neither a blemish nor bubble in sight – a thoroughly professional job.

Tony also has a great eye for colour and we were delighted to have his assistance in matching the wall paint colour to the wallpaper.  

He is a very tidy worker and completely trustworthy.

Claire Wilde

We have been using Tony Fogarty to decorate our home for over 8 years.  He has painted and wall papered and we found him to be accomplished at both.  His knowledge of colour and attention to detail is second to none.  He has transformed our home on many occasions.  He goes that extra mile to achieve the best finish filling where necessary before paining.  he is trustworthy reliable extremely tidy and very competitively priced.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Tony for any decorating job.

I recently had Tony Fogarty painters carry out painting works to the entire interior of a terraced house in Raheny.  All work was carried out in a tidy way and on time for a deadline.  The painters were tidy throughout the works and used appropriate dust sheets, masking tape, etc to protect carpet, furniture and surfaces.  Tony provided a competitive quote and facilitated paint purchase at a discounted rate from a supplier.

Yours Sincerely,

David Gardner

The finishing touches and the ease of working with Tony always ensures great results and I will always recommend him very highly.

Yours sincerely,

“We have availed of Tony’s services as a painter and decorator (both interior and exterior) on several occasions in the last few years, and we cannot speak too highly of him. He is prompt and punctual in all of his dealings, his work ethic is top class and the quality of the finished product is exemplary. No fuss – no mess, just a totally professional experience. We wish him well and we are happy to recommend him to other prospective clients”.

Capt. Eddie Keane. Irish Ferries

‘Tony was recommended to me last October when I needed some painting done to the house.  From our first meeting I found Tony to be knowledgeable and helpful, advising on and recommending some colour choices and brands of paint.  His attention to detail and high quality of his work is second to none, not to mention his very keen rates.  He is neat and tidy when working and very trustworthy.
Since hiring Tony initially to paint one room he has been back several times to paint and wallpaper other rooms in the house and I have no hesitation in recommending Tony for any decorating work required.’

Tony Fogarty recently painted our new attic conversion, hall, stairs and landing, bathroom and dining room.  He did an excellent job.  In particular, he gave great advice on the colours to choose. We certainly wouldn’t have the lovely colour scheme we have now without his know-how and expertise.  He did a lovely job and is neat and tidy. He also prices his work fairly. I would recommend him highly.
