Murray’s Upholstery has been around since the 1980s, providing services to a variety of clients located in different areas, from Limerick all the way to the general Munster area.

If you are looking for an upholstery service with a solid foundation of experience, they are a great choice. They’ve worked for a diverse client range including the East Clare Golf Club and the University of Limerick.

We were very impressed by their gallery of past works as most of them include intricate designed furniture. Specifically, they have exemplary results with tufted upholstery and chairs with irregularly shaped frames.

For those with more curved and complex-shaped furniture pieces, Murray’s Upholstery may be the right fit for you.

Murray’s offers two main types of upholstery, both domestic and commercial. For their domestic category, we are impressed by their re-upholstery quality and range, as they work with many types of pieces including piano stools and large sofas.

They even make sure to check the frame of the concerned piece to ensure that the quality of the end product is as if it is brand new. We like that they don’t skip on the details.

For their commercial upholstery category, what we liked is that there is a great depth of options to their services. For example, they can provide french polishing and cushion matching to any business who requires it.


  • Worked with different types of clients from airports to hotels

If you’re looking towards upholstery options for leather and sheepskin, Irish Hide Designs is your best choice for a high quality service.

Although Irish Hide began back in 2016, their experience as a family business dates as far back as the 1800s. We do like that their rich and vast experience in fellmongering allows them to be highly knowledgeable and skillful in providing customers with advice.

Additionally, due to their reputation for high quality, they have been featured in the likes of The Irish Times and Irish Examiner.

What we can also appreciate about their services is that they make sure they source their materials ethically. The hides and leather come from the Wild Atlantic Way and they make sure to use by-products instead from the food industry.

Taking a look at their products, another highlight of theirs are the look and feel of the materials. Many customers have praised not only the quality, but also the aesthetic that their products bring into a room.

If you’re looking for more unique types of upholstery, they’re the perfect place to check out.

We like that their upholstery and customization service is quite flexible. If you have a look or design in mind, do not hesitate to call and discuss with them any of your requests.

Some limitations we do see is that these materials can run quite costly but also understandably so. Make sure to check out their site beforehand to look at the range of prices they offer.


  • Open 24 hours
  • Extensive and qualified background
  • High quality of materials and source them ethically
  • Flexible upholstery and customization service


  • Services can be more costly
  • Limited options to leather and sheepskin

If you’re looking for a commercial upholstery service provider, O’Doherty is an excellent and all-around choice.

They have both onhand pieces and bespoke services, ensuring that these are all overseen by proficient craftsmen. We like that they are highly skilled and knowledgeable, making them a great choice if you’re looking as well for consultations.

What we also like about Cover All is that their procedures are very detailed and thorough. To start with, they provide consultations and even free estimates.

Following this, they have a good service for color matching as they have a wide range of color samples to choose from. We were very impressed that these steps allow for a fully customized service.

This also carries over to their re-upholstery service, providing customers with a range of fabrics to choose from as well as being adaptable to different furniture designs. We also like that they can provide replacements for covers and foam to fully round out the whole process.

Their stock of items on their site is also quite large in terms of different furniture types. They feature high wooden stools to even durable models for outdoor furniture.

If you are interested in checking these out in person, we also like that they have a showroom to display their available selection.

For those who would like private consultations, especially for more custom pieces, make sure to call ahead as they only do so through appointments.

  • Extensive collection of furniture from stools to tables to outdoor furniture

Mairéad O’Doherty Interiors is your definite go to if you’re looking to match your upholsteries and fabrics to full interior makeovers. 

They specialize in interior design and some of the works they feature includes working for the Fitzgerald Woodlands House Hotel and the Revas Spa Adare. We find their works to be very cohesive and atmospheric.

Their portfolio shows that their work makes the room feel themed yet stylish. We like that they do not shy away from different materials, colors and textures.

They are a great choice if you’re looking to add some personality and boldness to your rooms.

Additionally, they have a great list of options for suppliers especially in the fabric and wallpaper category. Some of these include Skopos Fabrics and Clarke and Clarke.

We like the curation of different suppliers they have, as it makes it easier for the customer to narrow down options and sources.

What we can further appreciate about Mairéad O’Doherty Interiors is that their consultation and coordination ensures that the project is tailor fit to the shopper. They make sure all decisions on pieces are run through by the customer’s approval before moving ahead.

If you want someone who is very involved with choosing the right fabrics and textiles for your space, Mairéad O’Doherty Interiors may be your best bet.

Keep in mind however, that this may not be the best option for more straightforward and singular upholstery services, as their strengths lie more in cohesive and top to bottom interior design.


  • Extensive commercial upholstery work in hotels
  • Portfolio shows works that are stylish, with bold colors and different textures
  • Great range of suppliers
  • Can manage logistics to source products


  • Services might be more costly
  • Not the best choice for a straightforward upholstery project
