Join de Blacam and Meagher Architects on a tour of Donnybrook Gardens, a development by Cairn Homes plc of just 85 bespoke apartments and penthouses tucked away in a new enclave off Greenfield Park in Dublin 4.

These gracious modern homes are inspired by the tradition of grand apartment-living found in the great cities of the world. Designed and constructed by a dedicated team, every detail has been painstakingly considered to create an exceptional place to live. Donnybrook Gardens was formerly home to UCD’s School of Horticulture and the name was inspired by the horticultural history of the site. This heritage of research and teaching has informed the landscaping design of the development, resulting in an intricate environment that displays the best traditions of craft gardening.

The five apartment buildings are linked together by a series of shared common gardens with a central south-facing lawn and orchard planted with fruit trees. Formal knot gardens, lines of pleached lime trees and mixed herbaceous borders are influenced by the horticultural traditions of the French renaissance, while a kitchen garden encourages residents to add their own touch to the gardens, reflecting the spirit and history of the site. The apartments are crafted from a wholemeal, nutty buff brick set into a light champagne mortar. This is set off against green/black low maintenance Umbra Scandinavian Alu-Clad windows which possess low u-value for energy efficiency.

Every home features full wraparound paved balconies with exterior lighting and structural glass balustrades, offering a peaceful outdoor retreat with views of the woodlands of the Belfield campus, while you can catch glimpses of Killiney Hill, Dublin Bay and the Dublin Mountains in the distance, and the skyline of the city to the north.
