Your Friendly Paint & Decor Retailer
Pat McDonnell Paints is Ireland’s Leading Independent Paint & Decor Retailer
Pat McDonnell started in the paint business with Harrington, Goodlass and Wall (HGW Paints) in 1967. He spent 10
years with HGW paints, which went on to become Dulux Paints Ireland Ltd., 3 of those years in the laboratory and 7
years in the sales department.
Sensing an opportunity in the market Pat left in 1977 to establish, along with his wife Cora, Pat McDonnell Paint Sales
in 63 Grattan Street, Cork. Pat soon outgrew these premises and moved next door to a larger building and then again
to a much larger building around the corner on Bachelors Quay.
A second store in Cork was opened in 1997 on Centre Park Road and then the company grew by opening new stores
in Kilkenny (2000), Tralee (2001), Athlone (2003), Galway (2005), Nutgrove in Dublin (2013) and Limerick (2018).
The company currently employs over 100 staff between its 8 Paint and Decor Stores throughout Ireland. Over the
years all of these Specialist Paint and Decor Stores have been developed and altered to provide the consumer with
the greatest range of colours and finishes available. Each of our stores has highly knowledgeable staff, all the leading
paint brands, wallpapers and decorating accessories along with Free a in-store Colour Consultancy service and Free

know more. We have more“ positioning.
As a Retail, Trade and Wholesale business, the customer base is made up of Consumer, Painter/Decorator and a range
of Paint and Hardware Stores throughout the country. The Irish paint market and the Irish interiors market have
