“Guardian Management Accounts are a great team who have worked together to provide me with sound professional advice. They have taken the time to understand my business and it is a pleasure to work with them. Top quality accounting with a friendly personal approach.”

What our Clients say…

Irish Advocacy Network

“We have found the service provided by Colum, Evelyn and other staff members of Guardian to be professional, friendly, informative and can at any time request a meeting to discuss any aspect of our accounts or budgets for the year. I have no hesitation in recommending Guardian Management to any other organisation.”

What our Clients say…

Keenan Lynch Architects

“It is said that the most valuable person to a business is a strategist. Colum Whelan is a super strategist. And he achieves that by a deep interest in who you are, what you do and where you need to go. And then he tells you how to do it. By that means, Colum brings additional value over and above the basic service of other accountants. I hold Colum in great regard - he is one of our greatest assets - and I recommend him and his team to anyone who finds that their accountant merely deals with their books and records.”

What our Clients say…

Plumbing and Heating Ltd.

“I moved to Guardian Management accounting going on 3 years ago from another Accounting firm who I was with for 23 years. The difference is amazing. My old Accountant never advised on half of what Colum and his team in Guardian Management have advised me on. Such as guidance in relation in what I am entitled to as a business owner. So I would highly recommend Colum and his Team from Guardian Management. Any time you need advice, they are just a Phone call away and with advice you can trust.”

What our Clients say…

Murtagh Security Systems

“We moved to Guardian and the experience has been exceptional. We are kept up to date with quarterly review packages and Colum and his team are always there to assist if ever we have any queries. I would recommend Guardian Management Accounting without hesitation.”

What our Clients say…

CCT Group

“We are a fast growing multinational technology company located in Ireland. Guardian provided multiple services to our Company as it grew – including CFO secondment, accounts payable, monthly consolidated reporting, payroll and local tax services. We found them very responsive and a great resource as we grew our finance team internally.”
