Splash Designs was born in Kerry in 1996 and is still going strong
Splash Designs started life as a graphic design business in 1996. We quickly realised our marketing skills and ideas really helped companies so we branched into websites, digital printing, exhibitions and signage.
Stephen is the founder of Splash Designs and has worked in the design industry since 1993. He has vast knowledge of taking projects to the web and developing online businesses. Stephen studied Civil Engineering in Cork and then Software Support in Dingle, where the design bug was first hatched.
We can provide you with everything you need to market your business at an exhibition, online through your social media channels or developing your marketing hook.
Eir Spider - National Website Awards
We won ‘Tourism Website of the Year’ at the National Website Awards the Eir Spiders. Finalists were Failte Ireland, Northern Ireland Tourism Board and the Guinness Storehouse. Killarney on a Map was an allocation based booking engine which allowed the visitor to view rates on a Google map based on when they wanted to visit Killarney. Accommodation providers could login to the system and upload their allocation of rooms and rates. We have also been nominated on 21 occasions nationally for our website work.

It's great to get feedback from clients, below are some comments from projects we have completed.
Steve Gilbert, Rethink Group
Steve has provided us with a video testimonial about the service we provided to Rethink Talent Management
Helena Buckley, FEXCO
Splash Designs provided FEXCO with a professional and efficient website design service for many years. During this time the staff at Splash Designs met all our creative needs to ensure that FEXCO’s corporate image was reflected in the website. As our company grew and diversified into new markets, changes were often required at short notice and Splash Designs have never failed to deliver on time. The team at Splash Designs is great to work with and their experience in this sector ensures the customer gets the results they want.
Stewart Stephens, GoKerry.ie
Following an EU tendering process, Splash Designs were awarded the contract to develop the GoKerry.ie website and destination management system. GoKerry is an ambitious initiative to bring all Kerry localities and businesses together under one brand, in order to maximise the visitor economy in the county.
The challenge for Splash Designs was to develop a system with a high level of functionality for collecting and managing data, which was simple to use by a wide network of novice users and with the flexibility for data structures to evolve over time. Stephen and his team brought a high level of technical and design skills to the project. However, their proactive approach to finding practical solutions and improved features was particularly striking and contributed greatly to the success of the project.
Mark Corkery, Premier Financial
From the initial meeting Stephen and Marc were very enthusiastic about our proposed website and helped me to comprehend the steps in the process to build a modern website. I felt that I could ask them about anything from marketing to a technical query and I always got a clear explanation. I would recommend Splash Designs to anyone who wants to develop a website.
Jerry O'Grady, Killarney.ie
We would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen O’Sullivan and his team at Splash Designs. A short few years ago, together with Splash Designs we created the new killarney.ie website which has developed into our most effective marketing tool and as we write this, we are once again working together with Splash Designs on a major updating of the site.
Kieran Rutledge, Tralee.ie
Tralee Chamber Alliance and its members are very happy with the website and support services provided by Splash Designs. The initial design was spot on from day one and is a great reflection on all that Tralee has to offer. Its ease of use and concise information is particularly useful to visitors to the town.
Menno Roos, Listowel.ie
Splash Designs built the new Listowel.ie website. After carefully researching the market for a destination website we came to the conclusion that Splash Designs was the way forward for the Listowel Marketing Group based on their extensive portfolio of websites completed combined with their experience in the field of destination websites.
Splash Designs provided us with a comprehensive website that looks great, is easy to maintain and offers true value for money! Their experience with destination websites, swift turnaround time, expert advice and ongoing assistance and implementation support makes Splash Designs an ideal partner for any destination in Ireland. We are delighted with the result and can't recommend Splash Designs enough.
Michael Conacur, Thinking Toys
In early 2012, we at Thinking Toys, sat down with the team at Splash Designs to discuss the full re-design of our website including incorporation of E-Commerce functionality. A key factor in the ultimate success of the project was the time spent at the beginning of the project, by the team at Splash Designs, working with us in identifying the specific needs of our business and tailoring the solutions to these needs.
The new site was launched in September 2012 and as a customer, we are delighted with the final product. Even more critically, we have received lots of positive response from our own customers, complimenting the usability and look and even more critically, there has been a tangible increase in website usage and sales since the launch.
Geraldine McGlynn, Golden Ireland
We are very happy with our new website and the feedback from our customers and tourism providers has been fantastic. Splash Designs listened very carefully to our brief and delivered a website that is clearly laid out, dynamic and easy to use. Having almost full control of the admin functionality is an added bonus as well as the capability to allow clients to access their own accounts to amend offers/reviews, graphics etc.
Eamonn Downey, Owens McCarthy
Our business serves a specialist section of the Insurance industry and we work very hard to be Number 1. We choose Splash Designs for a few reasons - track record of an associate company of ours, value, core skills, turnaround speed and ability to understand our business. We got all of these and in addition we got innovation and a true interest in helping our business to improve. Now we would not go past Stephen and the team at Splash Designs (We have just commenced our next development strategy with them).
John Weldon Jewellers
From the moment I contacted Splash Designs I felt I was going to do serious business. I was immediately introduced to Stephen the director who gave me such confidence I couldn't resist. It was explained to me how I would have ultimate control over my own website with easy backend adjustments anytime from anyplace. With having a large, ever changing selection of items with varying prices this was of most importance to me.
We are now often No.1 with many search engines when looking for "celtic jewellery "so not only did I get everything I was promised, the after service is prompt and excellent too! Thanks to the wonderful team at Splash Designs!
We've worked with over 17,000 companies down through the years. From large multi-nationals to Mary's B&B down the road.
