A true Irish success story, the company designs and makes custom lighting for the commercial, industrial, hospitality and private sectors. A request to make church chandeliers proved a big break for Mullan Lighting and since then the past six years has proved a boon for the company which have made lighting for Google, Legoland, fashion brand Superdry and even the British royal family.

Established as a one-man business in 2009 by Mike Treanor, in an abandoned mill in the abandoned village of Mullan, the business has grown thanks to its focus on great quality design, expert manufacturing skills, flexibility and speed of delivery of projects to commercial clients. The business currently employs 65 people, a number that is set to rise in 2020, and sells to 55 countries worldwide.

Known for the beautiful aesthetic of their lighting and a firm favourite with interior architects and interior designers, Mullan Lighting have created lights for interiors in many restaurants, hotels and leisure facilities across Ireland, the UK and the rest of the world.

Their lighting is an integral part of the interior design at places such as the newly refurbished Café en Seine bar in Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Costa Coffee, the Jamie Oliver restaurants and the Hard Rock Café. You’ll also find their lights in the Titanic Hotel in Belfast.

We have previously reported on the extraordinary project carried out by the company at Le Mer in Dubai whereby an entire series of highly technical lights were designed and manufactured in Co. Monaghan to withstand excessive heat and potential sandstorms along a boulevard in the city.

One of the largest decorative outdoor lighting projects in the world, the scheme consists of over 1,500 bespoke pieces which were manufactured over a very tight time schedule of just eight weeks - testament to what this incredible company can do.
