About

So who is Fionuala Lennon?

Here’s a quick look at my design background…

BA Hons Degree in Interior Design – 4 years
I was lucky to study interior design right after I finished school, fully qualify with an Honours Degree and realise my dream to create interiors professionally.

New York – 5 years
As a young designer I travelled the world and worked for 5 years in New York which I absolutely loved. The excitement of that city and the opportunities in design that I experienced have stayed with me ever since…

Design Director – The Irish Pub Company – 5 years
When I returned to Ireland I became Design Director with the largest interior design practice in the country and was a critical member of the team who were first to develop the Irish Pub Concept worldwide.

Principal of my own Design Practice – 18 years
I set up business with my architect husband in 1999 and we have designed all kinds of interiors from retail to office to hospitality. I can safely say that I have designed over 100 pub interiors and it is a career that I am still seriously passionate about.

  • Award winning Designer – Opus Award, RIAI Award and many of our Pubs have won various awards.
  • Regular contributor to Update, the Vintners Federation of Ireland magazine over the last 10 years.
