New Builds

Peter had an eye for detail and made a number of design suggestions that we incorporated into the build of the house as well as ideas that led to a more cost effective build. We wanted an “A” rated house so we were pleased to find Peter has strong knowledge of modern construction methods and was able to work smoothly with our engineer in respect of the more technical details of the build. Murphy Building & Civil Contractors employees produced quality work and we found everyone of them professional and extremely easy to deal with…in short we are delighted with our new home.

Always tolerant of the inevitable changes which will be sought by clients on the course of construction, particularly in one off projects.

Frank & Dorry O Flynn, Blackrock road, Cork City – November 2015

In 2010 we approached a number of builders to quote us for building our new home. After looking at all quotes and meeting with the contractors, it was obvious that Peter Murphy &sons was the best fit for our needs.

It was a decision we did not regret. From the demolition of the old house in 2012 and right through to when we moved into our new home in 2013, Peter Murphy was extremely professional and efficient. Throughout the build, they worked closely with us to ensure that we ended up with the house we wanted. Any problems or unexpected developments that occurred during the build were solved to our satisfaction with the minimum of fuss. Since we have moved in, many people have complimented us on the extremely high standard of the finish in the house.

We would be glad to recommend Murphy Contractors. In fact since we moved in, a number of our relatives and friends have engaged them to build their homes.

Tom Kelly, Carrigaline, Co.Cork – Jan 2014

Having seen the high quality of the work that Peter did for our sons John and Alister in building their new houses, we approached him about renovating our old farmhouse. From beginning to end Peter’s main concern was that everything should be done to the highest standard.

Peter was always ready to discuss any problem that arose and we found him willing to suggest and implement solutions to problems that come with challenging renovation projects.
Peter was honest, patient and understanding, which is important during stressful building projects.

His staff and tradesman were always very helpful, courteous and very professional.
They carried out the work to a very high standard. We are very pleased with the finished work, we now have a lovely warm home.

We have no hesitation in recommending this company and have in fact used them on another project ourselves since with similar service delivered.

Civil Works

When, after many years of planning and fundraising, Carrigaline Tennis Club was ready to commence development of its new green field site in Kilnagleary, Carrigaline, Co Cork we were anxious to retain a builder of the highest standard but competitively priced to carry out ground works and to construct our new clubhouse. We ultimately settled on Murphy Building & Civil Contractors and we are delighted with our choice as in November 2013 we moved into our new facility, of which we are very proud.

Peter was true to his word and contract in every way and he and his employees were a pleasure to deal with. We are very happy with the quality of the build and we are happy to recommend Peter Murphy and Murphy Building & Civil Contractors.

College Corinthians AFC engaged Murphy Building and Civil Contractors to carry out ground works in Castletreasure, consisting of draining a carpark and adjoining pitches / training areas into a swale. Murphy Building and Civil Contractors clearly understood our needs, and carried out the works on schedule and within budget. They also showed interest in the final job by revisiting site during wet weather to prove the system worked. We will have no hesitation in contracting them for future works on site.

Peter Murphy Plant Hire were very helpful and obliging throughout the installation process. They prepared the area,installed the culverts,reinstated the road and did everything from A-Z in the most efficient professional manner. Peter Murphy Plant Hire did an efficient no nonsense job.They worked away themselves and did as good a job as if they were putting in the underpass for themselves. They took pride in their work and displayed excellent workmanship. I was extremely pleased with the end product. They gave a top class service and I would highly recommend them.
