Derry Quay Construction Ltd completed the considerable extension work to our home in 2009.

We are overjoyed with the works completed and in particular with the manner in which they were carried out. We expected "hairy times" when we had our newborn baby right at the time that our old home was to be "broken" into our new extension....but we needn't have worried. The attention to detail as well as the forward planning carried out by Donoghue Contruction ensured that this period of the development was stress free.

Considerable landscaping works which included a paved patio were also completed to the highest possible standard and this along with their competitive prices left our family delighted with our choice of builders. Thanks for all the inputs and advice that was given on the way John, your knowledge of interior design complements your business acumen exceptionally well.

We did not know John before we chose him out of three possible contractors to take on our house extension and as we were new to the area we had no prior knowledge of his work. He was the third person to view our property and we knew after the first five minutes, even before estimates were suggested that he was the man for the job. He is approachable, professional and very patient. We had zero experience of taking on this sort of project. From first stage to final finishing touches he insistd on the highest standards and was always on site when we needed him or on the other end of the phone if we had any queries however small. I don't remember a time when he did not return a call if he was not available right away (and we called alot!). We were also very glad to find John was open to giving his own suggestions based on his experience and his input was not only very much appreciated but invaluable. We were so pleased with our newly improved home that we have recently had John back to landscape our garden. Again the end result that was achieved from the price that was quoted surpassed our best expectations.

Cheers Buddy!

1. Derry Quay Construction completed the work and again both John and his guys were fantastic. John came looked and priced the job and came the day he said he would. The job took the time he told us and when they were finished they cleaned up so well after themselves that you would never know that they had been. We were really impressed with John. We have another small job next year and will ask John to do that and would highly recommend him to anyone. Having been horrified some years ago when we were doing an extension with the Builders we had, our experience with John was the complete opposite a pleasure to deal with.

I was throughly impressed by John and his team. He rang the evening that I posted the Job to get more details on the job. His brother stephen then made an appointment that suited me. I got a full and detailed quote with what I thought was a fair price. The team arrived at 8.45am and stayed to finish the job until 7.00pm. The place was left clean and tidy. I will definitely be using them again.

Derry Quay Construction recently completed a summer works scheme in our school. He was extremely competitive in his price. The work was completed in the given time and either himself or Stephen were always at the other end of the phone. Any time we met with them they were always co-operative and helpful. At the end of the job when we returned to school Stephen called for the few jobs that needed the final touch and even more little jobs we came up with. I would highly recommend them and overall a job well done with no headache and total co-operation.

John we are most grateful for the beautiful job you did on the house in Cornamona. We are delighted with all the work and it will be a pleasure to spend time there anymore. Your attention to detail was A1. This is just a small token of our appreciation.

We built our house in 2010 just like alot of our friends. However, unlike most of our friends we enjoyed every minute of it. John took the stress and strain out of every decision. He talked us through our options and helped us decide on the most suitable one for us. If John told us that he would be at the house at a certain time your are guaranteed that he would be there. His workmanship is second to none and this can be seen in every thing he does. We are sure without John our house would not have the "Wow" factor. We are delighted with the work carried out for us and would highly recommend Derry Quay Construction to anyone. We asked him to build our house but instead he built us a beautiful home. We will definetly be using Derry Quay Construction again.

Just a few lines John to say the work you carried out for me at my uncles was to a very high standard and the fact it was an old house you were able to recreate some fetchers so the old and new looked the same. The fact that you were able to accommodate that Johnny would be living in the house as you worked and the works were carried out in time. From start to finish its great work from floor to roof and the place was left clean and tidy. With the new dry-lining and windows the house is super hot. It was also great that you were available in the evenings to go over any queries and keep me up to date and point out any issues in the build. Thanking you very much.

When I decided to renovate my uncle's house, a neighbour recommended Derry Quay Construction, and from the word go, we never looked back. John was reliable, approachable and full of common sense. He gave us great ideas and made us feel that they were our own. We hadn't a clue where we were going half the time, but John was very patient and explained everything in detail no matter how daft the question was. He consulted us all the time and was always on the other end of the phone. When Stephen came on board, we felt that we were getting two experts for the price of one. I can only repeat what every one else has said about John and Stephen Donoghue. We were so impressed by them. They are the kind of people who give builders a good name. We never felt that our renovation was just another project for them to get through. They were as interested as we were in getting everything right. We are so pleased with the finished work. If the building industry had more people like Derry Quay Construction we would have a very bright future and our country would be in safe hands.
