Completed Projects

Latest Projects

Domestic Renovation - Murvagh

A complete renovation project on a holiday home that had been built in the early 1970's transforming it into a much more contemporary and comfortable living space. The owners wanted the materials & design to reflect the coastal location so this informed our choice of materials and the overall design.

Extensive House & Garage - Laghey

An extensive five bedroom modern house & garage build project. The project included new roof with skylights and loft accommodation and associated landscaping work. A high quality finish throughout using the latest energy efficient building materials and techniques.

Beach House - Rossnowlagh

This family home was built with a contemporary style in mind - with external wooden cladding and an extensive, easy to maintain decking area lending a modern but practical implementation to the build choices. Glazing and roofing materials were elected to withstand the weather conditions associated with a coastal location.

We’ve Been Building A Better Donegal For Over 25 Years

Micheal’s father, Frank, started the family business back in the early 1960’s and soon developed a reputation locally as a hard working, conscientious and reliable builder. If you wanted a job done properly, Frank was the man. Today, Micheal maintains the same tradition. Equipment, techniques and regulations may have changed – but the same qualities that clients relied on Gallagher Builders for back then, apply today.

Client Testimonials

“Having been involved in several building projects in Ireland and the UK I know how important it is to find a builder you can trust to deliver. Micheal and his team have transformed our property – effectively converting it from a drab, dated building into a modern, stylish contemporary home. He was proactive, and worked hand in glove with our architect to come up with some great suggestions and solutions as the work rolled out. He kept us informed of progress when we were off-site. As well as being friendly and professional, the workmanship was superb – I couldn’t recommend Gallagher Builders Donegal more highly”

“Living abroad we took Micheal Gallagher on to build our holiday home in Donegal on the basis of recommendations from previous customers. We repeatedly heard of his reputation for great project management skills, exceptional craftsmanship and being very pleasant to deal with. We are delighted to say that we have no hesitation in passing on this recommendation to others. Taking on a new build project is unnerving in its own right but Micheal was fantastic in keeping in touch with both calls and photos. There is nothing that we would fault or express reservations on – which is quite rare! We have no doubt that, should you choose Gallagher Builders for your project you too will be delighted with their service.”

This was a big project for all of us – transforming what was as a treasured but ageing family farmhouse into a modern home. Micheal was very patient as we explored various options and came up with some practical solutions when we had questions about the right materials for the job. His local knowledge meant we could trust the various suppliers so that deliveries on site were on time and hassle free. He completed the work ahead of schedule and we’re delighted with the end result.


Where possible, we use local companies who partner with us for the supply of building materials & any services sub-contracted to our projects. Our longstanding relationships with these companies translate into great service and quality work for our clients.
