About Ian Goodley Painting and Decorating
I have been in the trade for over 20 years and I am City and Guilds qualified and experienced in all aspects of painting and decorating. Customer references are available and most of my work does indeed come from recommendations from previous happy customers. I do not ask for payment until a job is completed to the total satisfaction of the customer and I can guarantee that the work will be finished to the highest standard using quality materials and with the work area left in a clean and tidy condition.

Customer reviews for this trader
Ian painted my lounge to a very high standard. He was clean polite and very helpful with any problems that arose. I would request Ian to do any further work for me. First time I have given a review as I was so impressed with his high standard of work. Would recommend him without hesitation.
This was the first time we have used Ian, he was recommended by a good friend. He did a wonderful job of decorating our hall and staircase, he is very polite, punctual, and is certainly a first class tradesman. The cost for the works was very reasonable and we have booked him to decorate our lounge in the Spring of 2022. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Ian decorated our newly plastered bedroom. He was professional, conscientious and his price was amazing. He came the day before to prepare by masking up and laying his dust sheets. He is a hard worker and very friendly answering any questions we had. We are thrilled with the bedroom and would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Ian!
Once again Ian did a superb job and he came up with suggestions for our poorly ceiling that we had not even thought of. It all looks so clean and light now. We can totally recommend Ian.
Ian has done an amazing job transforming our new kitchen/diner, hall and downstairs loo. He has decorated for us several times before and his work is always superb. He offers help and advice, if needed, and his attention to detail is fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble - but, best of all, he's such a lovely, friendly and trustworthy man that we have no qualms at all having him in our home and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Ian made an excellent job painting the rendering at the front of our bungalow and side of garage, including having to work around a high raised pond! He gave us some great advice too. Ian is very professional, friendly and his work is of a very high standard, at a reasonable price too. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Ian was very reliable did an excellent job and at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend.
Ian has done several jobs for us in the past and we had no hesitation in asking him to quote. His price was excellent and as usual, he has undertaken a fabulous job doing ceilings, walls and woodwork. Very efficient and a lovely finish - all completed in less time than he quoted and below budget. Highly recommended. He is a real craftsman.
This was the first time we have used Ian as he was recommended to us by a friend. He decorated the entire lounge and kitchen and we are thrilled with the work. He is punctual, very professional and the work is completed to a very high standard. The price is extremely reasonable and we have no hesitation at all recommending him to anyone.
We have used Ian before for other works in our house as well as recommendations to other family members. Ian has provided a consistent, reliable and high quality of service which has enriched the quality of our home and we would have no reservation in using his services again and providing a personal recommendation to anyone who is considering his services. Ian provides a very personal service which is a compliment to him.
Ian transformed our House before Christmas. He was tidy and professional at all times and consulted with us every step of the way. We don't usually do reviews but we definitely wanted to on this occasion. A fabulous job and we could highly recommend Ian. We will be using him again and again.
Definitely arrives on time, works really hard, very impressed with his work, great attitude enjoys his work and he also has a great sense of humour which sometimes you need. We would recommend Ian to family friends and anyone else which we have already done so. But he does like a good cup of Coffee.
Ian is a fantastic decorator. He is completely professional and reliable from his initial quotation to completion of the work.
Ian is a true professional who takes pride in the quality of his work. He is also training his son Malachy who has all the respectful qualities of his father and will make a fantastic addition to the business. Ian is reliable and completely trustworthy. He has been coming to my home for several years now and will continue to be my first port of call.
Ian was very professional - his work was first class at a fair price. Thank you Ian.
Ian is always friendly and polite and goes the extra mile to produce a great finish.
Ian did a great job and advised on wall colour to go with the wallpaper. I will use him again, very happy with the service.
Very quick reply to my phone message, polite, cheerful and professional. A can do approach and really proactive in identifying precisely what work is required, and offering his professional knowledge. A great eye for detail thus producing a high level of work with outstanding results. So glad Ian was recommended. I will definitely ask Ian to carry out my decorating in future. Great job, thank you.
Ian decorated our hall, stairs and landing. All work was carried out to a very high standard and we are delighted with it. Ian was punctual, tidy and professional. We have booked him again for more work in April. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Ian.
We have used Ian for a number of jobs over several years now. We keep returning to Ian as we have found him to be punctual, hard working, organised and tidy. He has always been helpful and tried to fit jobs in quickly if needed eg for Christmas. He is a very skilled decorator who is willing to listen to your ideas whilst providing advice about them. We had previously had a number of decorating firms and none have come close to his standard of preparation and attention to detail. Ian is pleasant, friendly and focused and no matter how big the job is he always realises that the home must continue around him. We would recommend Ian without reservation and are already thinking about our next decorating venture.
Excellent professional and friendly service and workmanship. Clean and tidy work, planned job efficiently and arrived as planned and completed in time frame estimated. We have already recommended to others and would definitely use for future decorating needed.
Ian was very friendly, courteous, tidy and professional. I would highly recommend. A true professional.
Ian was recommended to us by our daughter. He was very helpful with his suggestions for decorating our lounge. He was very tidy, punctual and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Ian was recommended to us and we are delighted with the decorating he has done for us. He is professional, friendly and very polite - and just gets on with the job! We have already asked him to do further work for us in the near future and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
We chose Ian to wallpaper our stairs, following strong recommendations. He arrived at the agreed time and brought protective sheets for the stairs. He helped me to decide exactly which walls to paper and advised on a better approach than originally planned. He is very professional, very tidy and survived my coffee making efforts! We are very pleased with the job and can only highly recommend him to others. I only wish he wasn't already so booked up as we will definitely need his help again. Thank you Ian.
Ian has decorated our stairs and lounge and has done an excellent job, the work is to a very high standard. The staircase was wallpapered and the lounge painted and we are extremely satisfied with both jobs. Ian and his assistant Mark went above and beyond by reattaching the bannister on the staircase and moving the furniture back in the lounge for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian to others, we used him after he did decorating for my sister who was also very pleased with his work. A clean and tidy worker, nothing else you could ask for in a tradesperson.
Ian is very professional, polite and considerate. He did an excellent job for us and nothing was too much trouble for him. He made the whole process very straightforward and we had full confidence in him from the very start. Ian explained what order he was going to do things in each morning but accommodated our needs as well. We definitely recommend Ian and will certainly contact him next time we need a painter and decorator.
I originally contacted Ian through Trusted Trader because a previous decorator had let me down. Ian came out and looked at the job, then completed it. I then contacted him to decorate my lounge and he's made an absolutely brilliant job of it. The wallpaper I had chosen was expensive and a bit of a nightmare to match up, plus I had some murals and painting. He completed everything expertly. Ian is easy to get on with, cracks on with the job and clears up when he's done. I thought his price was reasonable. I would definitely recommend Ian.
Ian and his partner was professional and done a great job for us. He made sure everything was tidy and hoover at the end of job. Very pleased with overall.
Wallpaper lined out my living room and bedroom emulsion and gloss. Very clean and tidy and a really great job Oh and he let the dogs out into the garden too for me. Definitely would recommend and will use him again in future.
Ian has just finished a fantastic job painting our hall, stairs and landing plus a bit that needed painting in the kitchen which he kindly did too! Lovely chap, hard worker who just got on. Polite and friendly _" would recommend without hesitation. Great price too!!
We were on holiday whilst Ian decorated our downstairs and hall area. We had no qualms leaving Ian in the house alone. He is very polite, understanding and helpful in choosing our colour scheme. During this time he was responsible for the security of the property and we felt at ease and confident in his ability. On return we were very pleased with his workmanship and the house was left very clean and tidy. Ian is returning in May to complete further work for us.
I was looking forward to having Ian spruce up our entire house, but after over a week of trying to get a date for Ian to start the first room and not even getting a reply I cancelled the work. I felt completely Ignored and wont use a tradesman who has such an unprofessional disregard for customers. TRADER REPLY: I am very sorry to read this. I did indeed quote for decorating a bedroom and a bathroom at the property earlier this year,but was unfortunately taken ill and was not able to immediately reply to a text message received. After getting a second text informing me that I was no longer required to do the work I presumed that this was the end of the matter.I pride myself on the many good reviews I have and can only apologise again for this misunderstanding.
Ian decorated my daughters bedroom. We are delighted with the results, Ian did a great job painting 3 walls and wallpapering the other one. He charged a fair price and he left the site clean and tidy too. We would have no hesitation in recommending him, we will definitely be using him again.
This was the second time we have had Ian decorate our house. And as before he has done a fantastic job, his work is always to a very high standard, he was always on time, reliable and trustworthy, always happy to go out for the day and leave him to it. And what a lovely job he has done. Highly recommend Ian.
Lovely job - will have him back soon.
