They have sold more than half a million doors since setting up four years ago, including one to the Kardashians.

The SME was set up in 2013 amongst four friends with a €8,500 loan, and has been a huge success - increasing revenue by 50 percent to €2.7 million and expanding into markets in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia.

The pair say the success of the business is down to “passion, creativity and determination, plus a sprinkle of fairy magic.”

The firm, which currently employs 15 people, increased its staff costs from €638,086 to €718,915 last year.

In the run up to Christmas, additional staff are recruited to cater for demand of their popular fairy door products
