A small example of some of the stone walls we have built.
Stone work is usually made of local materials varying from limestone, granite and sandstone. However, the quality of building stone varies greatly, both in its endurance to weathering, resistance to water penetration and in its ability to be worked into regular shapes before construction.
Having created many quality stone work garden walls, steps and household entrance ways etc. we feel sure that together we can create the ideal stonework for your needs. Our professional work shows no boundaries when it comes to a high quality job and we are sure that you will be happy with the outcome.
Dry stone walls –
The traditional dry stone wall is a hallmark of the Irish landscape, and its inherent beauty and functionality make it the perfect dividing line in any Irish garden.
Dry stone walls use irregularly shaped stones carefully selected and placed so that they fit closely together without slipping. These stone walls are typically wider at the base and taper in as height increases. The weight of the stone pushes inwards to support the wall, and any settling or disturbance makes the structure lock together and become even stronger.
Mortar jointed walls –

A driveway entrance is a welcoming introduction to your house so why not give it that extra special presentation and build it from stone. Whether it be Limestone, Sandstone, Liscannor or Granite, or any other stone type, our quality Stonework entrances and gateways are second to none and will make you and your guests feel welcome whenever they visit.
We can build a stone entrance or stone entrance pillars from scratch or we can face an existing entrance in stone. Additionally, we are also able to make repairs to existing stone entrances and piers if they have fallen into disrepair.
