Kilronan Hostel

Kilronan however use Gomio booking software as a solution for taking bookings and payment online.
Galway Website design

WELCOME / FÁILTE

Galway Site Design is based in Connemara More than 30 % of your visitors will be using a smart phone or other device with a small screen so I design websites that check this then load a version that suits the device. Is your existing website mobile friendly? Click here to find out. With over ten years experience designing websites, I can offer you good advice as well as good design skills. I will do my utmost to make your particular website a success. You probably have lots of questions needing answers the FAQ section of the site might help. Ranking highly with the search engines is very important, in fact essential if you are selling a product or your services on line. Using Face Book , Twitter and You Tube to keep your customers informed not only keeps them engaged it also helps with search engine optimization and your rankings. For further information about SEO please read some of my blog posts or give me (Rob) a call, on 0871615645. I advise my customers to use the best possible photographs for their website, I am not a professional photographer but have a good camera and know how to take a good shot so I do offer this service as an extra or we can use professionally taken royalty free images. Some recent projects are www.connemaraoilpaintings.com  www.arangoatcheese.com   
STORY About Rob I’m not what you might expect from a website design savy individual, I’m in my 50’s and you also wont employ me for my looks but then again I’m not selling underwear, it will be my job to help you make the on line side of your business work for you. I come from Scotland originally and haven’t lost my accent although I spent 20 years in Australia and am an Aussie citizen. The accent does not seem to be a problem dealing with my customers and I remember a small amount of Gaelic from back home. If I need to have Irish translation in the site I outsource this work to a person fluent in the regional Irish required. I’m a married man ( for 29 years ) an ex Sea Captain by trade and I have been designing websites now for over ten years, in the time I have been designing websites there have been huge changes and these are ongoing with the search engines constantly changing the way they rank websites. I look forward to working with you.

Below are a couple of websites I had “free reign” designing, from my clients I asked for the “feel” they required and also the type of customer they were seeking to attract.

Glengowla Mines

The tour was wonderful - the history of the mines was really interesting and our guide John was very friendly and informative. We also had lots of fun panning for gold and gems. I'd love to go back!

Website Design based in Galway Ireland

Elaine Conneely artist
Elaine was born and raised on Long Island, New York, in a small town called Cutchogue.  Her family home was on the edge of a creek that led out to Peconic Bay.  Sailing, boating, fishing, living close to the water’s edge defined her entire home life. Connemara’s shores became home to Elaine in 1996 when she moved here with her husband. During her time in Connemara, Elaine has devoted her time to teaching art to children, young adults and adults. For SEO reasons I got Elaine to register the URL www.connemaraoilpaintings.com and I took colour inspiration from her lovely painting series of crashing waves.

Canton Kitchen

This is an example of a very inexpensive website all it is really is two pages acting as a brochure for the restaurant their takeaway menu and an online form to email for reservations.
Gabriel of Aran Goat's Cheese will introduce you to his herd of goats and take you through the process of making his award winning product before sampling and experiencing the range for yourself. His beautiful Nubian and Saanen goats graze on the unique pastures of the Aran Island. I had total free reign with this website and it took less than a week to complete, the goats were a good photographic subject and I love visiting Inis Mór. The company logo already existed so I based my colour pallet around it and the owner was already actively using social media for his business.
