Lagan Homes Ireland creating great places to live

24 May , 2024  

Drawing upon decades of experience as an award-winning developer and home builder of choice, Lagan Homes Ireland has made an instant impression upon entering the Republic of Ireland market. With three more stunning developments on the way in 2024, Building Ireland touched base with Head of Sales and Marketing Vicki Tadros to find out more.

Having already delivered up to 500 high-quality modern homes across four magnificent newly-created communities within the city’s commuter belt in counties Louth and Kildare, Lagan Homes – synonymous with a prestigious portfolio of award-winning private housing developments across Northern Ireland and the UK since 1983 – has hit the ground running since entering the Republic of Ireland market during the summer of 2020.

This year will see three new premium developments launched in Drogheda, Duleek and Lusk as Lagan Homes Ireland copper-fastens its reputation as an industry-leading developer of exceptional living spaces in the Republic of Ireland.

As a group, Lagan Homes pride themselves on being modern, innovative, and different. With a proven track record for delivering stylish homes for comfortable living, in convenient and desirable locations, Lagan Homes is at the forefront of high quality home building and their strength lies in their people – from experienced innovative architects to skilled meticulous craftsmen.

Every Lagan home is meticulously designed and built to offer occupants unbeatable quality, performance and comfort, invariably reaching the highest levels of energy-efficiency in creating futureproofed, sustainable new neighbourhoods not just for today but for tomorrow too.

Although Lagan Homes Ireland is a relatively new division, focused on developments in the Republic of Ireland, Lagan Homes’ reputation as a developer and home builder of immense status precedes them. “Lagan Homes is well established at this point,” confirms Head of Sales and Marketing Vicki Tadros. “We have been delivering high-quality developments in Northern Ireland and the UK since 1983 and launched in the Republic of Ireland in 2020, with our first development – Hammerstone in Straffan, County Kildare.”

A wonderful 82-unit development of elegant, energy-efficient three, four and five bedroom houses, Hammerstone quickly sold out and Lagan Homes Ireland subsequently launched three new sites in 2022. “We have quickly gained a foothold in the Republic of Ireland market and we are growing year on year,” Vicki continues. “The number of units being delivered is rising annually and we are delighted to be launching three more new sites in 2024.”

The trio of sites launched by Lagan Homes Ireland in 2022 were Newtown Wood in Drogheda, County Louth; Hillfort in Kill, County Kildare; and Lumann in Straffan, County Kildare.

Ideally situated on the Termonfeckin Road, only minutes from Drogheda town centre, Newtown Wood is perfect for both couples and families. Designed around open green spaces with modern houses of various styles and sizes, this 177-unit development is designed to suit every lifestyle.

Hillfort, meanwhile, is a wonderful development of A-rated one, two, three and four bedroom homes ideally positioned just off the M7 in the picturesque village of Kill, which perfectly combines country living with easy access to Dublin city. Hillfort offers a superb standard of finish that is second to none, combining spacious accommodation within beautifully landscaped surroundings.

The homes at Hillfort have been designed and built with the quality and attention to detail that any discerning purchaser would expect. These generously proportioned A-rated homes offer a perfect balance living and bedroom accommodation, with stylish kitchens and contemporary bathrooms.

“We have launched and sold four phases at Hillfort, with Phase Five, comprising 24 units, due to launch around February / March,” says Vicki. “Lumann in Straffan – which is 69 units plus the crèche – is located directly behind Hammerstone and those two developments will complement one another perfectly. Lumann is almost completely sold, with only a couple of units available.”

Occupying an unrivalled position in Straffan, accessible up a sylvan avenue and nestling in a beautiful parkland setting in this most picturesque of Kildare villages, Lumann offers a selection of two, three, four and five bedroom A”-rated homes which have been creatively designed with great attention to detail. Granting spacious and light filled accommodation in beautifully landscaped surroundings, these generously proportioned contemporary homes provide a perfect balance of living and bedroom accommodation, combined with high quality kitchens and bathrooms.

“The response to all of these developments has been fantastic,” Vicki notes. “There is very strong demand in the market for new homes at present, and Lagan Homes are renowned for consistently delivering a high-quality product, which has stood to us. Our good reputation goes before us and we pride ourselves on always delivering high-quality finishes with the keenest attention to detail.”

Located on the Old Slane Road in Drogheda, Gort Mell is a beautiful development of 237 three and four bedroom homes due to launch towards Q2, 2024, which should coincide with the launch of 141 units at Weaver’s Lane in Duleek followed closely by a 41-unit development in Lusk, County Dublin.

“Between those three sites we have plenty of work ahead of us going forward and we will have units in all three of those new developments ready for handover later this year,” Vicki enthuses. “Construction has commenced on the three sites and we expect to see first completions in those schemes from September.

Lagan Homes Ireland has hit, and exceeded, all its targets since inception and it looks like there is much more still to come from this outstanding developer of superior living spaces at a time when we desperately need to increase our housing stock.

“In terms of delivery, we completed almost 220 units in the Republic in 2023 and that is a great achievement. There has been strong demand for all our developments to date. We aim to continue in the same vein.

Being part of the successful and established group of companies confers many benefits upon us including the fact that we can source all our timber frame systems from FastHouse.

“These are exciting times to be part of Lagan Homes Ireland. I’ve been here 18 months myself and it has been great to be a part of this journey. Our unit numbers are increasing year on year. It’s been busy, in a positive way and these are all exciting projects to be involved in.

“We invest a lot of time, effort and expertise into making sure that the lay-out and spec of every home is well thought and ensure we deliver a high-quality product.”

Lagan Homes Ireland’s Managing Director, Chris Carroll has big plans for the business, going forward Lagan Homes will continue to add to their land bank and grow the business increasing the number of units delivered year on year and become even more established in the Republic of Ireland.  With a strong management team in place, Lagan Homes Ireland has all necessary skills and expertise under one roof. This combined with the fact the business is well capitalised and the in-house connection with Fast House ensures Lagan Homes can continue to deliver a high- quality product and achieve these goals.
