CLR Design has many years experience in hotel and corporate design, including some of the most prestigious hotels in Ireland.
It was established by Ciara Ní Laoi in 1997, after 13 years working in the area.
CLR has a broad experience in the commercial sector, detailed on the enclosed Project List, and has worked mainly at the upper end of the hospitality area – in some cases working as part of the Design Team (such as Doonbeg Golf Club, St Helen’s Radisson Hotel), in other cases working exclusively with the Client (Mount Juliet, Moy House, Druids Glen, Ballynahinch Castle Hotel, O’Looney’s), taking projects from concept to handover.
We like to get on board as early as possible, as good design starts with getting the layout right and no two projects are the same. When commencing, we spend a lot of time working with the client on establishing the brief and the requirements specific to each project.
When initial layouts are worked out, visuals and sample boards are produced for discussion and approval, and when designs are finalised, working drawings, electrical layouts and finishes specifications follow.
The approach to a project is to work on the basic structure and add the layers gradually. We like a space to look and feel as if it has evolved naturally over time. We aim for a casually elegant, comfortable finish.
We work with an eclectic mix of furnishings, including antiques, and have a specialised group of tradespeople to produce bespoke items. CLR Design can tailor a package to your requirements. Our design package can range from Turnkey solutions -complete design and fit-out, including the purchase, manufacture, delivery and installation of all items – to design only consultancy.

I would encourage anyone to hire her - you will thank me later!
We are currently working with Ciara on the complete renovation of our home. The house, which was derelict, is a 1930's home in the Arts and Crafts style, and Ciara has worked with us to be sympathetic to its heritage, while giving us the modern touches that anyone would want. What we appreciate more than anything with Ciara, is her ability to really listen and understand what her clients want. We regularly wonder how she has managed to 'get into our head' and give us the most wonderful drawing of exactly what we wanted, but with the finesse and elegance that a designer can bring. I cannot recommend her highly enough and would encourage anyone to hire her - you will thank me later!
General Manager, Sligo Park Hotel
Doesn’t feel like walking into a typical hotel room.
Walking into one of Ciara’s rooms at Sligo Park Hotel doesn’t feel like walking into a typical hotel room. It feels like care was taken to create a unique space for our valued guest. Ciara’s work reflects our suburban location on the Wild Atlantic Way. Her choice of colours and textures reflect the natural surroundings of Sligo Park. We are delighted with the result – a fresh, inviting interior which has compounded our strategy of establishing the Sligo Park at the upper end of the four star market.
