This is to confirm that Padraig McGovern, builder, did an extensive renovation, rebuild and renovation of our home in Donnybrook, Dublin 4 about four years ago. Padraig and his team did an absolutely excellent job. His workmanship was of the highest quality, he completed the job on time and within budget cost. As well as that he and his entire team were most receptive to any views we had to express. I would have no hesitation in stating my complete confidence that Padraig will deliver on whatever he commits to. Padraig has our contact details and we would be happy to elaborate further on request.
McGovern Builders worked on our 1950s house in Stillorgan in early 2016 to rebuild a single storey extension to the back of the house. This involved moving some internal doorways, opening up an unused chimney for a gas fire and installing a steel beam across the neck of the house. He got on very well with us and with our architect and engineer, keeping us up to date and helping us to continue living in the house while work went on. We had a clear schedule and budget and stuck well to both. Padraig and his team were also accommodating of the kitchen installation team. They had great attention to detail and we would have no hesitation in recommending McGovern Builders for your home renovation or building work.

Padraig and his team at McGovern Builders did a fine job on the refurbishment of our four bed house in Terenure. Their attention to detail was excellent and Padraig liaised very well with our architect to ensure that things were done right first time and the way we wanted. Padraig was also thorough on the snagging and attended to all of the outstanding items on the list. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and his team.

McGovern Builders carried out a full renovation of our Edwardian-era terraced house in Drumcondra. When we bought the house it was in a terrible state: it had damp, the ceilings were failing in and it was uninhabitable. McGovern Builders gutted the house and built it back up to be the family home of our dreams. Padraig and his team were a pleasure to work with throughout the project. We really appreciated their flexibility, advice and problem-solving throughout the course of the project. They worked to schedule and were meticulous and clean in their work. We would have no hesitation in recommending McGovern Builders.

It is with genuine pleasure and satisfaction that we recommend McGovern Builders. Padraig was always professional, pleasant and courteous, as well as the team he brought with him. The build was completed on time as promised and we were delighted with the end result. We can highly recommend McGovern Builders.
Larry & Sandra Bacon, Griffith Avenue, Drumcondra
Working with Padraig and his team was an absolute pleasure. Padraig was always professional in his dealings with us and very fair when it came to discussing any changes to the plan or any issues that arose. Padraig obviously takes pride in his work but he was particularly proud of the specialist brickwork in the house and how well it looked. We enjoyed working with Padraig and the team, they also worked very well with our architect and that made life easier for everyone. We would have no hesitation in recommending Padraig and would be delighted to work with him again in the future.

McGovern Builders carried out a major renovation of a period house for us, and we couldn’t be happier with his work. The job was completed on time and within budget. More importantly, the quality of the workmanship was faultless. Padraig managed the project from beginning to end and produced a fantastic end product. The entire team were very easy to deal with and worked with us on every step of this journey. It was a pleasure to work with McGovern Builders and I would happily recommend them.

McGovern Builders undertook an extensive renovation/new build of our 1950s bungalow to provide additional attic bedroom and kitchen space and we are very happy with the completed project. The build involved a lot of complex roofline and glass work and was finished to a very high standard inside and out. Padraig's attention to detail was second to none.
John McGuire, Mount Merrion, Dublin
We found McGovern Builders great to work with. No detail was too small or problem too big for them, and we were delighted with the finished product. They were reliable, always available, and managed the process while facilitating us continuing to live in the house. Any issue that did arise, Padraig just looked for a solution rather than to assign blame.
David & Susie, Ranelagh, Dublin 6
My husband and I have been using the services of McGovern Builders when revamping our new family home. Padraig has been a real partner and has managed our project on time and on budget. He has also provided us with regular updates and has gone beyond the original brief to ensure we had an end result matching our expectation, even when facing unplanned issues. Finally, McGovern Builders are fully RECI and VAT compliant, which proved useful when we wanted to avail of the HRI revenue initiative.

We employed McGovern Builders to undertake an extension and complete refurbishment of a property built in 1930 in Terenure in Dublin. The property, whilst extended in the 1990’s, was in a general state of disrepair. Padraig McGovern ran the project in a very professional way, constantly liaised with the architect and demonstrated an exemplary attention to detail that a period house requires. The project was completed on programme and on budget and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective client.
