We used CKF mobile kitchens while completely refitting our commercial kitchen. The project took 8 weeks to complete in which we used a mixed double kitchen and refrigerated unit from CKF Hire. The service was invaluable as we were able to continue to serve our customers to a high standard and continued to take in new business. I would highly recommend CKF Hire to anyone considering a kitchen refit or lacking in a kitchen area and wishing to serve food.

Hi George,

Thanks very much for everything. I was delighted with the portable kitchens. We managed to maintain our business through a very stressful month of reconstruction. I found dealing with you and john an absolute pleasure. I found any little problems were dealt with very quickly and efficiently. Its nice to deal with people that understand catering. Hope you have a good summer season.

Dear George,

I would like to thank you and all your staff at CKF Hire for the kitchen and the walkin Chiller we hired from you for the Electric Picnic. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to operate a fully functional kitchen with gas, water and electric in the middle of a field in Stradbally. The professional staff showed us how to use the equipment and always at the end of the phone if we needed them. The kitchen worked well and delivered in excess of 1500 meals per day. The whole event went really well and we had a great time. We will definitely use your services again and will recommend you to our business associates.

We recently asked CKF Hire to provide facilities for a kitchen refurbishment project at one of our sites in Clonmel. The team i.e. Ingrid, John and George were quick to respond and John conducted a site visit to evaluate the requirements we needed. The full proposal was outlined with specifics of the kitchen unit and what we would expect with visuals, drawings etc and questions were answered efficiently. The timing of the project did change several times, and CKF Hire were flexible and accommodating. I received a follow up call afterwards by George personally to see how the project worked for us. I would highly recommend CKF Hire for future projects

We engaged CKF to supply a temporary field kitchen along with all associated equipment and cold storage facilities on a nursign home re-development / upgrade project for a six month hire duration.

It was a challenging project which involved a lot of interface and up-front planning with the Client in order to fully satisfy it in respect of the quality and suitability of the temporary facilities that were being provided. As it was a live healthcare facility particular attention was required to ensure the requisite standards of HIQA and EHO were maintained. We found the experience and professionalism of CKF Hire to be instrumental in allaying our concerns, and those of our Client, in that regard.

The units and equipment were provided were to a high standard and met our requirements in all respects. We are delighted to have partnered with CKF Hire in the delivery of this phase of the works and we are certain that CKF Hire were an integral part of its successful outcome.

We would have no hesitation in recommending CKF Hire for any such future projects.

Seamus Duggan, Joint Managing Director, Duggan Brothers (Contractors) Ltd


Here at Wineport Lodge, quality and service are the hallmarks of our guest experience. It’s essential to work with partners that share the same values. George and the team in CKF Hire exemplify the standard of supplier we aspire to work with. We managed to maintain the same high quality food offering using a CKF Hire Kitchen and successfully renovated our own kitchen without any interruption to the business. I would highly recommend CKF Hire for any hospitality need – big or small – and I would be delighted to use their services in the future.
Ray Byrne, Wineport Lodge


“We have availed of the very comprehensive and flexible services of CKF HIRE on many occasions in the last twenty years. George Smullen has tailored many solutions for us, giving sound advice based on his experience which is always reliable. CKF HIRE were particularly helpful with a state of the art kitchen for our setup for the recent World Mounted Games in Tattersalls.”.
Margaret O'Brien Lynch, O'Brien Lynch Catering


“Just a brief note to thank you and your team for the speedy turn round involved in the fit-out and delivery of our container kitchen for the King’s Hall Pavilions. The unit is easy to work and keep clean and is serving us, and our customers well, providing a method of delivering a hot food service where there wasn’t a planned kitchen facility. On a recent visit of our EHO it was commented that the unit was well designed and put together from a food hygiene point of view.”.
Bruce Kirk, Hamilton & Kirk Specialist Caterers


“Just a note to say thank for your help recently with a temporary kitchen unit. Excellent service &everything was in perfect condition, delivered and collected exactly as promised . Would have no hesitation in recommend your services for any other job.”.

“Ckf Hire under the professional management of George Smullen and John Perkins have supplied refrigeration and mobile kitchen hire solutions for many years at major events like the Irish Open Golf, The Irish Derby, and at festivals and private events around the country and in N.I.
Always willing to advise on the best solution their service is second to none and their help always appreciated, without this service we could not organise major events each year.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any event that requires kitchen and refrigeration equipment solutions, delivered and installed in the most professional manner.”.
John Coughlan, Managing Director, JC CATERING Ltd


“Fairyhouse Racecourse used the CKF Portable Kitchen for catering for 1,000 people at our Meath GAA fundraiser last December 2013. It was a great success, as this plug-in option removed the need to individually source catering equipment and provided us with a compliant area to prepare and cook food. I would thoroughly recommend it and will be using CKF Hire again. It removed one major potential headache with a phone call to George.”.
Peter Roe, Fairyhouse Racecourse Manager
