O’Malley Construction is celebrating its 50th year of business! The local House Builder / Development company was founded in 1971 by three Brothers from County Mayo and is unique as one of just a handful of House Builders in Ireland to be constructing new homes, after 50 years of operation.
The company has built over 12,000 homes in both Galway and Dublin and this is a testament to the dedication and work of the many people, that have worked on these projects.
The company has provided housing for close to 50,000 people between its Private and Social homes and continues to deal with second and third generation buyers looking to live in an O’Malley home. O’Malley’s has earned a reputation for delivering high quality homes with attention to detail both in the house design and throughout the landscaped scheme layouts.
Over five decades, the company has experienced many changes in the housing market and the technologies used to build houses for discerning purchasers.
During the 1980’s the country experienced record levels of financial difficulties. In Galway, Government Tax Incentives helped in the development of shops, offices and overhead accommodation right in the city centre and on lands previously used for Dockland activities. O’Malley’s were involved in the Development of many landmark buildings in Middle Street, High Street, Cross Street, Merchants Road and St. Augustine Street and construction of the Eyre Square Shopping centre in 1989.
It was also during the 90’s that Apartment living in the city became popular and O’Malley’s developed schemes in Barna (Creagan), Salthill (Dun na Carraige) and Terryland (Gort na Coiribe). Dun Aengus, Aengus House and Portmore provided a new streetscape along the Spanish Arch and The Long Walk riverside.
It was during these same years that several landmark buildings were also constructed by O’Malley’s to include Jury’s Inn Hotel, Brennan’s Yard Hotel, Galway Bay Hotel and a number of high-profile schemes in Dublin which included Churchfields in Milltown, Adelaide Road, Ballsbridge Wood, Sunbury Park in Dartry and later, Wyckham Point Development in Dundrum.
