Órla and Tim have great knowledge, vision and understanding of the hospitality industry, the kind of expertise that is adaptable to any city in the world.

Host carry out all the traditional and expected tasks of a PR company with a minimum of fuss and a professionalism, efficiency and expertise that betters most rival operations, a balm indeed to any under pressure writer, but it is Tim and Órla's very genuine love of food and their extraordinary culinary knowledge that so delightfully renders the business of selling pleasure a very pleasurable business indeed.

Host & Co. is well connected, brilliant to deal with and extremely effective. It has secured significant quality exposure for Hidden Ireland houses in the Irish media and it has raised the profile of Hidden Ireland and the individual houses substantially. We also appreciated his guidance and wisdom and we look forward to working with Tim and his team at Host & Co. in the coming years.

Justin Green, Ballyvolane House & Hidden Ireland

When it comes to food Tim and his team at Host know what they’re doing. Over the years they have always had the best interests of their clients at heart and they have the contacts, the nous and the inside knowledge to drive each and every project forward, in exactly the right way. Quite simply, Host really know what they are doing.

Paul Flynn, The Tannery Restaurant & Cookery School

I've always felt that Tim & Órla complement each other excellently. What's prominent with both of them is their true and genuine love for food and continuing intrigue into the restaurant business and all of its challenges.

Dylan McGrath, The Rustic Stone & Fade Street Social

For a hard-pressed working journalist, the provision of accurate, relevant and timely information helps us do our job. PR also involves the keeping of promises and the creation of what I call ‘a climate of goodwill’ in which the client/media relationship can flourish. Tim and Órla, true professionals, understand all this perfectly. It’s always a pleasure to encounter them, the more so because I know they won’t mislead.

Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

The Twelve has worked closely, every day with Tim and Host since before we opened for business in 07. Tim and the wonderful people he surrounds himself with have always by nature from day one not just grasped our concept, but have fine tuned it. Bright sparks, scintillating ideas and now, very good friends.
