1. Accent Webs

Accent Webs is a web design company offering a variety of digital services such as web design, web development, eCommerce, and SEO.
UX research, information architecture, wire-framing—these are just some of the UX design services carried out by their team of UX designers.
But what we like best about this web design company is its well-defined series of steps to achieve the best website for you via what they call the 6-D Process.
This shows them to be knowledgeable at their work by having a clear system to obtain their clients’ needed results.
Starting with step one, or what they call Discovery, they meet up with their client to learn their needs, goals, present situation, and the like.
This is then followed by the Definition stage where they define the scope of work to be done, until such time that they reach the final step in the 6-D Process which involves the handing over of the finished website to their client.
Another great thing about Accent Webs is its client-convenient meet-up options. They can arrange a phone meeting with you, but if you want a more personal appointment, they can also travel to meet you anywhere in the west of Ireland.

Media Pro gets our approval because they can build a good website that’ll turn visitors into customers. More than a visually aesthetic site, they produce web designs that are both responsive and speed optimised.
By measuring and testing all screen sizes, they ensure their client’s website appears properly on all devices. And to make sure visitors’ clicks to your site aren’t wasted due to slow page loading times, they offer WordPress website speed optimisation.
And what’s great about their web design services for new websites is that they pay for hosting for the first year and also include free on-site SEO. And for website redesign services, on-site SEO is discounted.
They even have an entire team for inbound marketing and SEO to cater to your site’s marketing needs.
Moreover, Media Pro can also help you with branding and logo design as well as custom printing design for business cards, flyers, banners, and the like.

Founded in 2010, Armour is a digital agency that has worked with some big-name clients such as Intel and Papa John’s Pizza. This award-winning digital agency has a notable list of services businesses can benefit from.
We like them best for mainly two things. As WordPress experts, they pride themselves in coming up with customized WordPress websites—no themes, just bespoke websites based on your business, technical, user, and design needs.
Secondly, we can’t help but be impressed by the research and planning processes they employ to come up with the best website or digital product for their clients.
With any project, they first conduct what they call a Needs Analysis which involves discussions about business goals, expectations, and scope of work, among others.
They also conduct interviews with the users of their clients’ products as part of their research. Taking the info they’ve gathered in this phase, they use this to come up with User Personas.
User Personas help Armour’s UX design team to solve user problems, thereby improving the overall user experience of your site.
What’s more, if you already have a business website or application, they can also carry out research to determine problems with usability your customers encounter. These so-called usability studies aid Armour in creating solutions to solve user issues.
Check out a couple of rave reviews from their clients:
“Web design and corporate identity are really important for an internet marketing business. We were really happy with the great website that Armour Interactive developed for EzSales. It was really important for us to have a stand-out website, with excellent functionality and cool graphic design and Armour Interactive really hit the mark for us. We have recommended them to many of our clients as a result.” -Sue Palmer
“I asked Armour Interactive to build my company website and they came up with a brilliant design. In no time my new website was up and running and I was reaching a whole new market!” -Joe Clarke
“Have worked with Armour as a client for over 1 year – really creative and on the ball – no messing – the best design & development co in the west!” -Derek O’Dwyer

With specialities in web design along with branding and logo design, Hopscotch can make your business stand out. It’s run by Orla Kirwan, a graphic and web designer who’s handled Hopscotch since 2009.
What we like about this web design company is its focus on making clients’ businesses stand out with its designs. Both their web and logo designs begin with research into your business needs to come up with a site and logo that’s suited for your brand identity and target audience.
Hopscotch also ensures its websites are compatible across all devices and, of course, have user-oriented designs. Meanwhile, you can have printed materials such as flyers, brochures, and more created by them.

7. Torc Web Design
|SERVICES||web design, SEO, recovery, hosting, e-commerce, magento web design, content writing|
|ADDRESS||Torc Web Design, C/O Ocean Sports Centre, Harbour Business Park, New Docks, Galway, Co Galway, Ireland|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+353 86 253 1550|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon – Thurs, 8:00am – 6:00pm|
Fri, 8:30am – 5:00pm
Torc Web Design has been designing responsive websites since 2007. They accept new builds or improve existing sites for all types of businesses, whether it’s just one page or a full ecommerce site.
We’ve checked their portfolio and we’re impressed by how eye-catching some of their work is. But more than the design, we find the sites functional and easy to use—a great marker of well-thought-out websites.
What could be their process to come up with such pro-quality designs? They weren’t as clear about it as the other companies we’ve looked into except for one thing: they offer unlimited design revisions.
That’s a surprise even for custom-designed packages. But perhaps it’s because they’re confident they can hit the nail on the head after just a revision or two.
Torc Web Design’s clients even vouched for their design competence, saying they explain options thoroughly, including what works and what doesn’t. They also make sure all the websites they work on are successful.
Which brings us to the other services they offer that will make this possible: hosting, recovery after Google penalty, copy and content writing all in a range of pricing options.
They also have 100% Irish SEO service, which includes audit, keyword research and on-page SEO to help you rank in Google Ireland.
If you’re interested but don’t want to commit to anything yet, you can take advantage of the free quote they’re offering. They promise to reply within one business day.
But as thorough as their services might be, they don’t seem to offer support for their builds or mobile app development. We hope they do in the future, though.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Niall and his team. They are reliable professionals that you can trust your business to, they do charge fair prices while helping to grow your business . To be noted that Niall is also a friendly and nice individual to deal with. We have been doing business with this firm for many years and they never failed to support or assist, we have been well looked-after throughout. Highly recommended.” – Live in Sardinia, Google reviews
Top class work
“Top class work. Can’t praise Niall enough. Always going that extra mile. I had no idea of the website world and Niall guided me through and created exactly what I wanted. SEO listings are spot on too, page 1 with everything we offer. I have no problem recommending Torc Web Design.” – Colm Galvin, Google reviews
How to Choose the Right Web Design Company
We’ve also gathered a few tips to further help you in your search:
A good web design company should be able to provide you with a portfolio showcasing their past work. This enables you to view the actual websites they’ve created for their clients and the kind and number of clients they’ve worked with.
Look especially for clients that belong to the same industry you’re in.
2. See their own websites
A good web design company should, of course, have a great website! From their website alone, you can already get a taste of their expertise in web design.
See if it is updated, visually appealing, easy to navigate, and has a design geared towards providing a good user experience.
3. Uses responsive web design
Responsive web design is no longer an option but a necessity if you want to reach your target audience.
If a web design company tells you that they’ll just create another website specifically for mobile because they can’t make your site cross-device compatible, that’s a red flag.
A good web design company should have the expertise to make a site that’ll fit across different devices.
