About Spacelab

Based in Galway on the west coast of Ireland, where art and technology rub shoulders every day, Spacelab has been in business since 2016, growing out of a highly successful college graduation project to create a membership system for the 126 art gallery. It now has a strong portfolio of sites, each individually created for its owner.

Spacelab was founded by Richard Chapman, who holds degrees in both arts and science and originally became interested in web design to put his own art online. When not designing he continues to work as a cartoonist, appearing in publications internationally. He is one of the founders of the Galway Cartoon Festival.

Our Service

If you have no Web presence, or just a basic one, Spacelab can create a professional site that fully meets your needs - and looks fantastic.

We do this in close consultation with you, so that the finished product looks and works exactly how you want it to, and we can do it at a price that we think you'll find surprisingly low.

The precise cost will depend on what your needs are - contact us for a quote right now - but you can have a site for as little as €500. Hosting and support plans start at €50 a year.

It can be as simple as a gallery of images or as sophisticated as a system for delivering course materials to subscribed learners; we will make it easy for you to use and attractive for the visitor.

Going Pro?

A lot of people start out on the Web with a free site from services like Wix or Squarespace. As soon as they want to grow though - add video for example, or use their own domain name - they find these stop being free and start to get expensive.

At this stage you are better off having a professional website of your own, designed for your needs, presenting your work as you want it to be presented. We can provide that, and make it even easier to use than a free site.


If you want to sell your work online, we can set up a shop for you - using either WooCommerce or Shopify.

LEO Vouchers

If you want a site that has some online business aspect like sales, or would like to add that to your existing site, you may qualify for Trading Online Vouchers (also called LEO Vouchers), a government scheme to help you start doing business on the Web. We can help you apply for this funding.

You don't have to be selling a physical product; services like distance education or online coaching may also qualify.
