Having trained as a bricklayer and stonemason, Sean Mulryan started his own building company, Ballymore, when he was in his early 20’s. He first sourced, vetted and supplied bricklayers for local contractors before starting his own development company, primarily in the satellite towns around Dublin. Ballymore moved into bigger population areas of Dublin and by 1992, Ballymore had grown into one of Ireland’s largest home builders. Growth was achieved on the back of a reputation for excellent quality, creative design and good value. Word-of mouth was and still is essential to Ballymore. People knew that Sean set exacting standards and enforced strict quality control for every home built. Ballymore is proud that this continues today.
In time Ballymore sought opportunities outside Ireland. Sean was quick to recognize the potential that London offered. It is one of the world’s great cities and the population was destined to rise with people coming to London from all parts of the world. Ballymore became synonymous with regeneration of whole areas of London and today you will find Ballymore active right across the city.
Ballymore is now established as one of the top developers in London. In more recent times, Ballymore has expanded across Europe. Our development in Bratislava, just half an hour from Vienna recently won two major European Awards for Best Building of the Year 2010 and Best Retail Development 2010, showing our depth and breadth of knowledge in building mixed use developments combining office, retail, hotels and leisure facilities.
