What our customers are saying….

"I had been looking for a really nice sheepskin rug for a while and Irish Hide were recommended to me. I ordered and it was beautifully packaged and delivered really quickly. It's a really beautiful rug and exactly how advertised. I use this rug for daily meditation and lying out very cosy yoga relaxations. It's so cosy and so versatile and would make a really beautiful gift too. I really love supporting this Irish owned company and Derek is very helpful and so nice to deal with! I would highly recommend if you are looking for really excellent quality and service and for a special gift!"

"From my initial enquiry I found Derek to be friendly, knowledgeable and totally committed to helping me choose the right product.  The beautiful cow hide arrived the following working day, beautifully packaged.  It now takes pride of place in our living area and I would not hesitate to recommend Irish Hide Designs to anyone looking to purchase one of their excellent products."

"A massive Christmas thank you!

Hi Derek, Just had to mail you after receiving my beautiful sheepskin rug which has been luxuriously draped over a sofa in my lounge! An amazing product, gorgeous, authentic, great value so much more than the cheap tat you can buy from some stores.  I received my rug within 2 days no quibbles, no loss of package which is a breath of fresh air at this time of year!
All beautifully presented and the icing on the cake a personalized thank you from your self which has compelled me to write to congratulate you on your fabulous product, delivery and service.
As a fellow artisan business owner in Ireland I wish you and your business the very best for the future.
And of course wishing you, your family and your staff the Happiest of Christmas 2017."

“I have just purchased two sheepskins from Hide Designs as presents for two of my granddaughters. The fleece is long and silky, they are cream in colour and very beautiful. I have had excellent service from Derek McCarthy who has been very obliging and, as I have more granddaughters, I shall be ordering again in the future. Both packaging and speed of delivery were very satisfactory. Many thanks.”

Being from Galway myself it was great to be able to get something of this beauty from the Wild Atlantic Way. The quality is second to none and i can’t wait to compliment it with more of their furniture.”
