About Beanstalk

Small but Perfectly Formed.

Beanstalk is a small design studio based in Sligo in Northwest Ireland founded by Eddie Johnston. We hand-build accessible, standards-compliant websites, covering every aspect of the process from front-end design to back-end programming.

From custom Facebook pages to blogs, e-commerce sites and web applications, we can deliver comprehensive, self managed solutions to any web development requirements. We’re a small but experienced operation which means that your project will get close attention. We won’t confuse you with jargon or try to sell you services you don’t need; we will build you a professionally designed website that you can update yourself, safely and easily. Whether your business is based locally in Sligo or further afield, we can work closely with you to create a website that fully meets your needs.
