Meet the team that makes it all happen
Interior Architect & Project Manager
Our culinary expert, Orla obtained her BA in Interior Design and Architecture while studying in Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin. She has over 18 years experience experience and has worked within many industries including hospitality, retail, health care, office and corporate. During her time with ‘Audrey Gaffney Associates’ Orla has designed and project managed many large scale projects including the Silverbirch Hotel – New Extension, the Skylon Hotel – Bar & Grill, the 4* Cabra Castle Hotel and the Mantis NiteClub and is currently working on 4* Castleknock Hotel and the 4* Beleek Castle.
Amy completed her degree in Interior Architecture and Design at Griffith College Dublin and joined the ‘Audrey Gaffney Associates’ team having previously worked at another design practice. Amy has 9 years design experience specialising in the hospitality and retail sector and has been with Audrey Gaffney Associates from the very start. Don’t be fooled by her angelic looks, she packs a punch with her design skills and has worked on numerous projects including the 5* Bellingham Castle, the 5* Lough Erne Resort, the 4* Cabra Castle Hotel, Customs House Restaurant & Wine Bar and just recently completed the Devon Inns Function Room and Balmoral Hotel, Bar & Restaurant.
Andrea joined the AGA team as a junior designer and has already moved up the ranks currently running her own projects alongside Audrey. She earned her bachelor honours degree in Interior Design from the University of Ulster in Belfast and has previously worked for a high-end interior design and fitout company, based in Belfast. Hailing from Donegal and another woman in the office, the rivalry is fierce during the run up to GAA games! Andrea is hugely passionate about design and fashion and is known for being calm and very level-headed while on site.
Design Studio Manager
Róisín is our Design Studio Manager and is responsible for the efficient running of our office and behind the scenes on all design projects. She holds a bachelor honours degree in Interior Architecture earned at IT Sligo and more recently gained a qualification in Digital Creativity from IT Blanchardstown. She is our ‘go-to’ girl when it comes to office IT and is responsible for all channel and digital marketing and maintenance of our digital media. Her love of coffee helps to keep the design studio alert with a fresh pot always on standby!
When it comes to the accounts Fiona Simpson has it all under control. Fiona manages the books with a strong and accurate hand, and is the person responsible for invoices in and out. She is one well–traveled lady and is well known on the ski slopes of France!
And finally, our photographer. He’s a bit like the Stig from Top Gear in so many ways. Not only does he have a passion for engines but he also likes to remain behind the scenes……or should we say ‘behind the camera’. Niall is responsible for all Audrey Gaffney Associates’ photography. He also takes on projects providing excellent photography for hotels, nightclubs and corporate clients.
