From the moment we first met Denis McGlynn we hoped he would take on our construction project.

Denis is personable, professional and fair. His attention to detail is excellent, and nothing phased him on our job.

His team are equally diligent and dedicated. They work quickly and cleanly and are skilled tradesmen.

We love the home that McGlynn construction built for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better contractor and we now consider Denis a friend.

Derval & Marcus
Glenageary Co. Dublin

Denis and his team completed a substantial and complex renovation of our 1930’s Tudor house to include an attic conversion, along with a major part single, 2 story extension to achieve an ‘A’ rated home.

We were introduced to Denis in November 2021 and upon completion of a negotiated tender, works commenced in May 2022. While the build program was an 8 month build the ask / target was to have us back in for Christmas 2022 which Denis delivered.

Throughout the entire project the Mc Glynn team were fully engaged, professional, trustworthy, helpful, personable and went above and beyond to deliver us a wonderful family home.

We would have no hesitation in recommending McGlynn Construction.

Without a doubt Denis McGlynn is one of the most reliable and meticulous builders with extreme attention to detail. Denis is so professional and accommodating. From the very start to the end of our project Denis was hands on and able to give us direction and guidance to achieve the best possible outcome. We are so happy with our renovation/extension I would 100% recommend Denis and his team.

We used Denis for our home renovation having had several people recommend his work. He has built a very loyal team over many years and they gel really well on site – we didn’t experience any drama that typically comes with house builds. Apart from delivering what we asked for per our design, Denis also worked with us at each step to see how we could improve things or to more easily and effectively deliver an end result. We are delighted with our new home and would highly recommend Denis to anyone thinking of a home build or upgrade.

Choosing a construction company to carry out a complete redesign, modernisation and retrofit, with just the original roof remaining, is a big decision.

Denis and his team took all the risk and hastle out of the programme of work, managing all aspects of the build end-to-end, helping and advising us on key decisions and sticking to the agreed timelines despite three lockdowns. Denis was and is always available and has a very skilled and conscientious team of people who delivered excellent workmanship to us. We would highly recommend Denis Mcglynn Construction.

Stewart & Anne

Denis and the team from McGlynn Construction did an amazing job refurbishing and extending our period house. The project started just a few weeks before the start of Covid so they were working in the most difficult of times with stops and starts beyond any of our control. Renovating a listed property is never without its challenges but no change (and there were many!) was ever a problem. Denis is very attentive on site and very quick to find a solution when problems arise.

The job was completed to a very high standard, and within budget- two very important and welcome qualities but aside from that we found working with Denis and his team to be a real pleasure. We have no hesitation in recommending McGlynn Construction and wish Denis and the team all the best for the future.

Grove Ave, Blackrock

We had a major renovation done on our house in Blackrock through 2020. As you can imagine we experienced a lot of disruption due to the Covid 19 situation. Even during the height of the lock down Denis stayed connected to us and we kept the project moving forward with good planning and engagement. The quality of the work and attention to detail was outstanding with Denis himself standing over every piece of work. This was not an easy project rewiring, replumbing, upgrading insulation in a 200 year old house while maintaining character and the history of the property.  Working with Denis was always easy as he is open and approachable and listens to the client throughout the entire process. He prides himself in delivering a top class finished home that meets both the needs and the dreams of the client.

I would have no issue at all recommending Denis and his team to any type of renovation work. Thanks to McGlynn Construction we have our dream home balancing 200 year old character in a modern warm and wonderful family home.

Tadhg & Lou
Lucan, Co. Dublin

We had a great experience with Denis and his team. Through the Summer of 2016, we completely renovated our house, and Denis delivered to our budget and before the estimated time to completion. We found that there was always solutions presented alongside any issues that arose, and were delighted with the quality of the build and the finish. Two years on and our home is still as good as new. Denis was super-organised and no question or suggestion was too big or too small before, during or after the build. We would have no problem recommending him for any home renovations.

We worked with Denis and his team on the refurbishment and renovation of our Edwardian terrace house in Dublin from February to September 2017. Teamed with our architect, Denis reconfigured the downstairs layout of our home and delivered a whole new living space. He and his team carried out their work with professionalism, integrity, attention to detail, respect for an old building and with consideration for our neighbours from beginning to end. Denis is easy to work with; he managed the project (and us at times!) extremely well. His finishing of the project and his attention to the final and finer details in our house underline his work ethic and quality focus. We are delighted with Denis’ work, so happy with our home and would recommend him wholeheartedly.

Una and Paul
Dollymount Dublin 3

Denis carried out a house renovation and extension for us in Clontarf and we were delighted with the results – the work was carried out efficiently, with a minimum of fuss and, crucially, on time and within budget. We would heartily recommend Denis’s work.

Sinead & Martyn Holmes

We worked with Denis on a major home renovation project – split over 2 stages, each approx. 3 months two years apart. The first stage was to demolish existing building extension, gut, re-wire, re-plumb and basically re-build the three bed semi-d from scratch. The second was an attic conversion creating attic room with en-suite as well as additional bedroom on first floor and increasing size of boxroom to double room.

We would recommend Denis to anyone considering a home build or renovation. From the outset, Denis proved himself to be completely reliable; he did exactly what he said he would do – when he said he’d do it! He worked will with all his team, with our architect and communicated regularly with us. This for us was really key. The standard of his work is excellent. Having worked with Denis and his team twice over the two stages says a lot about the quality of his work and the way he works with people. Denis was not just the obvious choice, but the only one as far as we concerned. There’s nowhere left to build now, but if there was it’d be Denis for stage 3. Maybe we should think about that cellar room after all…

Greg and Lin

Thanks for a super job on our renovation Denis. We’re absolutely delighted with the job – the finish is fantastic. We didn’t realise how many decisions would be needed over the course of a 5 month project – but you gave us plenty of notice – you were super organised and flexible. We found you very practical, fair and always in great mood throughout the project. The best bit was that we came in on time and under budget. We’ve been happy to recommend you to loads of our friends ever since. Thanks for everything.

Denis McGlynn completed a major building renovation on our home in Goatstown Dublin in 2011. The period of work was over three months. This involved removal of internal walls, installation of a new heating system with underfloor heating, (including installation of new flooring) conversion of three rooms into one open plan area, upgrading the overall house insulation including external wall insulation, and all plumbing electrical paint and tiling finishes. Conversion of box room to utility room and upgrade on bathroom.

Denis liaised and coordinated with our architect and the relevant specialist contractors. All works were completed on time and within budget. Denis was very reliable, and a solid, hard worker who kept us regularly updated throughout the process.

We would immediately contact Denis first if we were to engage a builder again and we would recommend him highly and without hesitation.

Jacqueline Garvey
Killiney, Co Dublin

Mc Glynn Construction renovated our house in 2011. I found Denis and his team to be trustworthy and to work to a high standard. There were no surprises regarding costs or timeframe and Denis maintained excellent communication throughout. I would happily recommend them.

Michael and Yvonne Cleary

We had a construction project that required us to move out of our house for 6 months while significant extension and remodelling was carried out. Our architect suggested a tender process for the builder and that is where we met and appointed McGlynn construction. Denis McGlynns work is of the highest standard and the follow up customer service is excellent. Denis was extremely easy to work with during the project. He has great attention to detail and a great work process. We rate Denis Mcglynn and McGlynn construction very highly and would strongly recommend him.

Paula Flynn

Denis McGlynn and his team did a complete refurbishment on our home including a significant extension. We couldn’t be happier with the finished result which surpassed our expectations. Throughout the project, Denis was an absolute pleasure to work with, always considerate, as well as utterly reliable and hardworking. The build was finished to a very high standard and the quality of workmanship was very impressive. I have no hesitation recommending Denis to anyone who is considering refurbishment or any other building work.

Churchtown, Dublin 14

Denis was a pleasure to work with. From the very first meeting to the end result. He delivered on budget, and weeks before the estimated time! He answered quickly to any worry or problem and the end result is of very high quality. Nothing was a problem to him, his team is amazing. He has great organizational skills and brings great ideas as well. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Karen & Denis
Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

In 2014 Denis McGlynn rebuilt and transformed our 2 bedroomed one storey house (750sq ft) into a modern spacious two storey 1900 sq ft home. The rebuild involved knocking all but the front two rooms of the old Edwardian cottage to create a spacious modern interior. Not only did Denis undertake the work with good humour and diligence but his attention to detail and time ensured that the work was completed within the agreed 6 month time frame and within budget. The standard of finish is superb. It’s four years now since Denis began the work on our house and we have had no problems.

Denis is not just an effective project manager, he also has an excellent eye for design. His guidance throughout the building process was invaluable; his advice on the sourcing of materials to the placing of everything from showers to the kitchen aided us immensely in the decision- making process.

We really can’t recommend Denis enough, his work was outstanding.
