Our Heritage

The Durkan name is synonymous with quality house building for almost 50 years. It is a reputation built on quality, delivery and excellent customer service.


The Durkan housebuilding story began in the 1960s when the Durkan brothers, from the West of Ireland, went to ply their trade on building sites in the UK. The experience was the foundation for an iconic house building business that would expand to Ireland.

Pat Durkan was responsible for growing the private development division of the company over the 70s, 80s and 90s. It contributed to the family success with the construction of new communities in the Greater Dublin Area and prominent private housing developments in key locations across Dublin, creating quality homes for thousands of Irish families.

This great housing tradition has been carried forward by the next generation of Durkans. Patrick Durkan, CEO of D|RES Properties, has led the delivery of numerous quality residential schemes including a recently completed multi award-winning passive housing scheme.

Innovative Designs

Innovation has been at the heart of Durkan House Building for Two Generations


We aim for the highest standards throughout all stages of our development. We invest in Research and Development to improve our designs and building techniques, creating value for our business and also for our customers who purchase a D|RES Properties home.

We have a proven track record in delivering cutting-edge housing designs and creating healthy homes that produce significant energy and cost savings for the homeowners. Our ability to produce homes to the highest energy standards, at scale, has made us industry leaders in sustainable housing development in Ireland.

The D|RES team were involved in the delivery of the award-winning passive housing development at Silken Park in Citywest, the largest single passive housing scheme completed in 2017.

Creating Desirable Communities

A focus on building in attractive locations with opportunities for sustainable expansion.


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 requirements of a high-quality home in a sustainable and desirable community.

Our intrinsic understanding of the Irish market combined with our expertise in planning and development, coupled with the ability to build at scale, makes us ideally placed to create Ireland’s next generation communities.
