BUILT BY PARK Developments and Savills, Glencairn Gate is a collection of three, four and five-bed homes with prices starting from €745,000. 

The new development sits proudly on the grounds that once housed Murphystown Castle, which was designed in 1859 by Benjamin Woodward. From castellated towers to granite columns, this site holds plenty of historical significance. It has been the British Ambassador’s residence since 1963 and continues to be the home to Woodland Park, which is open to the public.

dining and kitchen space

Offering a choice of three property types, Glencairn Gate houses are designed as nearly zero-emission building (NZEB). The custom kitchens, courtesy of O’Connor’s have quartz countertops, integrated appliances and over-counter lighting, ensuring both functionality and style.

These homes are adorned with attractive bathrooms and en suite bathrooms that are extensively tiled and equipped with thermostatically controlled showers. Waterloo Bathrooms provide the top quality sanitary ware, while Brogan Jordan contributes custom made vanity units to the main en suite bathrooms and guest toilets. The attention to detail and masterful craftsmanship elevates the interior to provide the perfect canvas for the new owners to get decorating with their own styles. 


Glencairn Gate embraces sustainable living with super-efficient Daikin air to water heat pumps for hot water and thermostatically controlled radiators. The integration of Heatmiser Neo Hub and smart home technology via the Heatmiser App adds a layer of efficiency to these contemporary homes.


Stone walls surround the development, providing a warm and homely character. In terms of location, new homeowners will have the Luas at Glencairn just 200 metres from the entrance of the estate. And easy access to M50/N11 road networks further makes commuting a breeze. Leopardstown Shopping Centre is also within walking distance.
