Following a recommendation by a friend, Deirdre and I, Donagh, met with Tina O’Rourke and Alan Fitzpatrick to discuss designing and creating a new website for our food business, The Bean Tree Ltd. From our first meeting we found Tina and Alan to be clear, informative, professional and pleasant to deal with. We asked them to quote for the work and on receipt of their quote, which we were happy with, we engaged them for the work.
Communicating with Tina and Alan about the basic design/style of the website was uncomplicated and straightforward. Thereafter the work went seamlessly – from the photography and setups which reflected their creativity and technical skill to the general layout/design and narrative. Tina and Alan gave us exactly what we wanted in a website. They also gave us detailed instructions on how to update or make changes to our site and provided training on using social media. We are a food business so the ability to effectively use social media and to be able to make relatively frequent changes to our website is very important to us.
Tina and Alan were a pleasure to deal with all the way through the process and we are delighted with our website. Thebeantree.ie has got many compliments from our regular customers and has been bringing us new customers since it went live.
“I had an old HTML website that was not responsive and to be honest looked quite dated, I wanted to completely upgrade it and bring it bang smack up to date, I then met Tina and in conversation she told me that this was an area in which she had expertise. What an understatement!! Tina developed the exact type and style of website that I was looking for, she was great to work with and I found her advice on hard to understand IT stuff such as SEO very helpful. Tina is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in this area, she is a very pleasant person and I would highly recommend her to any person or any business who is seeking to develop a new website.”

It is then so reassuring to know that Alan is there to help sort you and get get things back on track. Whether your problem is a software one or a hardware hardware issue we have great confidence in him. His advice on updates and new digital innovations have always helped is greatly in our design business.”Peggy McConnell
“Two years ago I set up a historical website emilymweddall.com, containing the blog “The Life and Times of Emily M. Weddall”. I contacted Tina O’Rourke, who was most helpful from the beginning. She took me through the options and suggested the best one for my requirements. She communicated the technical aspects of it with ease and in a manner that I, who is not particularly technically minded could understand. She is also a gifted designer and has a great eye for a website that stands out in its field.”
