Ceadogán Rugs began as a small hearth rug business in Wexford town in 1981 under dye house master Tom Ceadogain. It was acquired by Denis Kenny and Fiona Guilboy in 1989 , Denis having undertook an apprenticeship with Tom (after stints as a fisherman, teacher and pig farmer, a true renaissance man!).
Over thirty years with Denis and Fiona at the helm, Ceadogán went from a small hearth rug business to a leading maker of fine bespoke rugs and wall hangings. Our work can be found hanging or lying all around the globe.
In 2021 the baton was passed again and Colm Kenny and Martina Navrátilová took the reins having spent several years deeply involved in the running of Ceadogán rugmakers. In good keeping with tradition both Colm and Martina found their way to rug making via the scenic route with backgrounds in furniture and fine art printmaking (and a few other detours along the way!)
We are now a team of eight people united in our passion for design and making. We are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in our craft and pride in our work.
We remain true to our roots – fiercely independent, committed to our local heritage and the tradition of exceptional craftsmanship. Our workshop and showroom are situated in the family homestead, a stone walled farmyard that dates back to the 1600s, overlooking Bannow Bay Estuary in Co. Wexford.
