Eileen Fitzpatrick, Fitzpatrick & Mays Architects

We have worked with Dolmen Construction on a number of residential projects and can recommend them wholeheartedly. They are committed to their work and extremely honest, Their relationship with us and with our clients has always been a very positive one. We would be more than happy to speak to any potential clients to give a personal reference.


I had a bathroom and bedroom extended by Dolmen Construction in 2010 and have to say that I cannot speak highly enough of the work that was carried out. Not only were they very competitive price wise but the quality of the work was to a high standard. Several times since I have called on Dolmen to assist with household repairs and they have always obliged without delay,irrespective of how small the job was.I always recommend Dolmen to my friends and those who have used them have also been very impressed.

Entrusting the care of your family home of over 20 years to someone else is a big deal. However after years of planning, we decided to extend and modernise our home. We selected Dolmen Construction from a number of potential building contractors because of their competitiveness and reputation, the quality of their work and reassuringly their presence in our locality. As we left our house prior to the start of work, Brendan assured us that he would look after it well for us …. and so it turned out to be.

Over the next four months, Dolmen transformed our home from an ordinary three-bedroom, two-storey, semi-detached house to something which still gives us a wow-factor every day. From major structural demolition and building, through underfloor heating, electrics, to wall insulation and decoration, Dolmen addressed all aspects of the build with their customary efficiency and good-humour. The quality of the build was apparent from an early stage and no detail was too small for them to address; such as putting up a locked post box for us outside property so that we could continue to receive our post. Dolmen were happy to meet regularly to review progress and handled the inevitable issues that arise in a build of this scale with ingenuity and care. Their staff made excellent suggestions when any issues emerged and followed these through the quality workmanship. We appreciated the fact that they started our project on time and maintained momentum until the job was fully complete. Dolmen completed our project on time and within budget; we have found their after sales service to be more than excellent.

Brendan and his team are not only 100% professional in their business dealings but a pleasure to do work with. We would be delighted to recommend Dolmen to anyone considering an extension or other home improvement project. We are very glad that we chose Dolmen: they are local, reliable and completed our project to a very high standard.

We have known Dolmen Construction for a number of years and they have completed a numbers of projects for us on both on our home and another property. We have always found Brendan and his team to be reliable, hard working and trustworthy. They arrive on time and clear up before they leaving each evening. We were happy to leave them in our home while we were at work.

Dolmen has a core team of tradesmen and easy access to additional tradesmen when needed to ensure there are no unnecessary delays. Brendan took the time to explain any hitches that arose during the work and how best to resolve them. We were very happy with the outcome.

We found Billy Guinan and his team to be conscientious and reliable at all times. Billy is an absolute gentleman and completely trustworthy. Although we were completely new to the process and it was a large renovation project, our architect assured us that Dolmen’s fees represented excellent value for money. We were delighted with the end product.

The guys from DOLMEN CONSTRUCTION exceeded our expectations. The men were fantastic and the project came in within budget and on time. My wife and I have done a few other construction projects over the last 30 years, but the quality of DOLMEN’s work was the best we ever experienced. Moreover, our architect was equally impressed that Brendan and the gang delivered on every assurance and undertaking that was given. Could not be happier with the end result.
