Burke by Design, is a family owned Irish business, started in 1998, Burke being our Family name and the ‘by design’ as we had started our business specialising in interior design & the design of beautiful 100% combed cotton bed linen & towels, together with an assortment of carefully chosen gifts for life’s special occasions.   

In 2008 we introduced ‘handbags & clothing’ to our store.

In 2013 we established the ‘Clonakilty Candle Company’ which includes the Inchydoney Candle, the Courtmacsherry Candle, the Timoleague , The Warren & our Mr. Collins, the latter candle being a nod to Clonakilty’s famous Son Michael Collins.   All of our candles are hand poured, fragranced with pure essential oils with 100% natural soy wax and cotton wicks.  

In 2018 we created the ‘Lend an Ear’ Initiative.  A collection of beautiful sterling silver, rose gold & gold plated earrings with monies from the sale of these earrings going toward Pieta House & Lisheen’s House.  Our message ..if you know someone going through a hard time if you can’t visit in person, please don’t text, pick up the phone, hear their voice, let them know you are there and that you care….Lend an Ear

In 2021 we introduce the ‘piercing studio’ into our store.

We deliver nationwide and to all corners of the world. 

We believe it is important to give back & we continuously support all the local schools and clubs. 

We are genuinely grateful for anyone who chooses to shop with us & at all times try to ensure we do our very best.

Our motto to live showing Gratitude, Kindness & Respect xoxo
