Deaf Enterprises restores furniture with repair, reupholstery or French-polishing for private individuals as well as upholstery work for bars, hotels, nursing homes, schools, barbers, and playschools.

We also sell quality refurbished goods and offer a wide choice in occasional furniture such as fireside-chairs, Queen Anne chairs, pouffes and footstools which can be manufactured to your own spec and in your choice of fabric from our extensive top quality range. Our expert and friendly staff will be happy to assist and advise you in your choice and a home delivery service is available.

Our activities provide employment, training and work experience to the deaf community in Cork.
