One of the best-known house builders

D|RES Properties is an established building company which is at the forefront of innovation and ingrained in almost 50 years of Durkan house building history. The Durkan family has become one of the best-known house builders in the Irish market and the name is synonymous with the delivery of quality family homes. The company is run by Patrick Durkan who continues his father’s tradition of good customer service and high quality that tradespeople are proud to deliver.

Award winning homes

We have a long history of constructing quality assured homes across the Greater Dublin and Wicklow area including developments locally in Charlesland Greystones, Giltspur Woods Bray and Wellfield Kilcoole.

Our team delivers award winning homes in healthy living environments to Ireland’s homeowners. Key to the success of our developments is our engagement with surrounding communities, being a responsible neighbour and handling our day-to-day operations in an environmentally efficient and sensitive way.

We are customer focused, which is at the heart of our business. Our commitment is to cater for the homeowner’s requirement of a high-quality home and our intrinsic understanding of the Irish market makes us ideally placed to create Ireland’s next generation communities.

Sustainable living in Eastmount

Eastmount has been designed and built using a timber frame construction method that uses renewable building material which is 100% sustainable. All houses in the development have A2 Building Energy Ratings.

Our houses are designed to be all-electric which is the most sustainable form of energy in Ireland. Ireland produced over 34% of its electricity from renewable resources in 2018 and this is targeted to increase to 70% by 2030. D|RES has been a champion of the all-electric house for many years.

All houses are wired for EV chargers to enable homeowners to use an electric vehicle as the country aims to radically decarbonise its transport systems. There are incentives for buying electric vehicles to make this happen as soon as possible.

We aim to make a difference and ensure that our customers can have a positive impact on both their community and the environment. The Management Team at D|RES has been pioneering in delivering the largest certified Passive House development in Ireland and won the national SEAI award for this achievement in 2017.

Purchasing a D|RES home is a positive statement and the houses we construct are future proofed for renewable energy upgrades if owners want to become energy self-sufficient.
