Steve & Sarah Daly - Foxrock, Dublin
Taking on the renovation and restoration of a 150 year old protected structure under the watchful eye of a renowned conservation architect is a big ask. However, Doran’s more than rose to the challenge and delivered an exceptional result. They turned a dilapidated Victorian farm house into a gracious, solid cosy family home that will last several generations to come.
Dealing with The Doran family and their extended team was a pleasure from start through to completion. No problem was too big and no crisis was insurmountable. They dealt each step of the process in a sensible, timely and effective fashion. Kieran Doran, who acted a project lead and foreman, was in a class of his own and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his commitment to delivering a first class renovation.
Gary Heaney, Flagstaff Lodge
“Doran Contracts ltd recently constructed a new bedroom block to Flagstaff Lodge (formerly known as Newry Golf Inn) consisting of 18 Bedrooms, 21 Bathrooms, Lift, Stairs and Reception Foyer.
The quality of their work was to the highest standard and the manner in which they planned and carried out the complete project allowed us to continue business as normal, without interruption. They were very helpful throughout the process and willing to put forward ideas on how to improve the design. Their suggestions were of considerable benefit in optimizing the design, and led to reduction in duration and costs. Their approach throughout the project was both professional and positive. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

“With no experience of house renovations, we approached the building of a major extension of the kitchen area with trepidation.
We need not have worried as Doran Contracts Ltd completed the work with minimum fuss, and we were able to operate in the rest of the house during the work. One of the greatest contributions made by the company related to the practical advice on matters which improved the overall layout considerably.
The project was completed on time and within budget and the new living area which was competed to a very high standard has been very much admired by our friends. We would have no hesitation in recommending Doran Contracts Ltd.”
Nora Byrne - MD Dealgan Nursing Home LTD
“Doran Contracts Ltd undertook the construction of the second phase of Dealgan House Nursing Home which consisted of 20 en suite bedrooms, sitting rooms, visitors and staff rooms etc. I can honestly say that the workmanship expertise and attention to every detail of plans was outsatnding and professional.
They have also attended to further structural works in Dealgan House with the same level of attention and care. I whole heartily recommend Doran Contracts Ltd for any building work big or small.”
