Riverwood Construction - Castleknock Dublin 15


Pat and his team worked on a renovation project for us in Portobello between Nov 2014 and March 2015. They were a pleasure to work with. Their approach to work was refreshingly professional, with great attention to detail, pride in their work, and undertaken with a great sense of humour - a real bonus! Pat’s extensive experience and creativity was invaluable when we were faced with the myriad decisions involved in such a project. We felt we were in safe hands during every stage of the process. Pat's post-completion service (snag-list) has also been impeccable. We are very pleased with the results and can heartily recommend Riverwood Construction.

Two main factors stood out for us when we engaged Pat to build out our extension in 2013... one; the quality of his work [we were familiar with a number of projects completed for neighbours] and two; his cost competitiveness when compared to larger operators.
Elma and Paul, Portobello.


Throughout the build Pat and his chosen sub-contractors were a pleasure to deal with and all were efficient, communicative and responsive.  Where changes were necessary, either by design or enforced through unforseen circumstances, they were attended to without hassle or fuss.   All in all a job well done with the build completed on time and on budget.

We couldn't be more pleased with the end result and would have no hesitation in using Pat again or in recommending him to others.
Tony & Eilish, Castleknock.


We found Pat very easy and reasonable to deal with and true to his word. He came to us via a personal recommendation and would have no hesitation recommending him to others. Very happy with the job, progress was rapid and disruption kept to a minimum.  Any changes that we made were attended to prompty and without fuss. All snags were attended to immediately. The job was finished on time and on budget. We would use him again.

We asked Pat to tender for our project based on a friend's recommendation and were made feel at ease in that everything we wished to do was possible. Elements of the job which appeared to be troublesome to other developers were considered routine and possible by Riverwood. 'Leave it to me' has to be Pat's motto. Since our first meeting, anytime we needed reassurance or advice on different possibilities Pat would sit down without rushing anything(even at the busiest of times), listen to us and reinforce our trust in him and in the outcome of the project. He was able to source all materials and tradesmen needed for each element of the job. We chose to remain in the house while the development proceeded and watched closely as Pat & his Riverwood Construction team transformed an ordinary mid-terraced house into a bigger, brighter home for our family, fulfilling all its potential within budget and on time.

We have kept in touch with Pat since the project was signed off and are happy that he is always a call away to tend to our needs. We would have no problem recommending Pat & Riverwood Construction to friends, family or anyone who asked.

Pat was a complete pleasure to deal with when building our extension and was extremely helpful throughout. He knows how important the planning stage is and spent significant time discussing the project with us beforehand. He suggested some marvelous ideas which we would never have considered ourselves and which have added to our home immensely. Pat has great attention to detail and very particular about providing high quality workmanship. He also worked to within the agreed timeframe and budget and there were no ‘surprises’ at the end.

Pat has a real ‘anything is possible’ attitude which made him very easy to work with. We are absolutely thrilled with our extension and are constantly receiving compliments regarding the high standard of workmanship. We cannot recommend Pat highly enough to anyone who is looking for a builder for their home.

I'm very happy with Pats work. We transformed a dark kitchen and underused dining room into a bright living space. Pat helped us through the design phase and the work was done on time in two weeks. Great value for money and high quality finishing.
Mike Brennan - Sandyford


Pat was recommended to us by friends and we employed him to build a porch for us in 2012.  The work was completed quickly, efficiently and without any mess.  We were totally satisfied with the work done and would have no hesitation in recommending Pat and his team to anyone. We would be happy to use them ourselves again.

Engaging any tradesman nowadays is a cause for worry. What's the standard of their work like? Have they done similar projects in the past? Will they turn up daily and complete the project on time, on budget and without major disruption? From the very outset and after an initial consultation with Pat our mind was put to ease. Pat contributed greatly in meetings with our architect in drawing up plans for our attic conversion and putting forward practical and cost saving ideas. During construction disruption was kept to a minimum which was invaluable given the fact we had a new born baby in the house. Notwithstanding the poor weather the attic was converted on time and more importantly on budget. What was particularly important for us was that Pat was always on site and available to answer any queries we had. The workmanship and standard of finish is exceptionally high. I'd have no hesitation recommending Pat to anyone interested in any construction project.

Pat and his team were as good as it gets when it comes to dealing with builders. From the get-go, Pat put in a huge effort to discuss every option possible and advised us on every aspect of the build. He gave very practical advice and has a very good eye for detail. Throughout the build, queries were discussed and resolved very quickly and without conflict or commotion. Pat himself is very obliging and easy to deal with. We are delighted with the finished job and we would highly recommend Pat and his team.

Pat did a great job in completely renovating our 1950's house. The job was completed on time and within budget. Pat was easy to deal and nothing was ever a problem. He worked well with our architect and engineer and was good at coming up with practical solutions. Thanks to Pat we now have a wonderful family home.
Sean O'Neill - Churchtown


Riverwood Construction took a lot of stress out of building a new home. Pat is very knowledgeable and seems to keep up with the current trends and materials. He is very creative and offered great ideas, when we came across any structural or design issues, he would always say "leave it with me!", and he would be back the next day with the solution. The first and second fix carpentry was excellent; the guy he uses was very creative and did a great job. Everyone who worked on the job was helpful and respected our home. When it came to the timeline and closing out the job with the agreed date, Pat was second to none. Other people which were through the house with two weeks to go, said, "It couldn't be done; you won't be in before Christmas". We were having dinner in our fully finished house on the 15th of December. We would HIGHLY recommend using Pat and Riverwood Construction.
