Cherrywood Village to deliver 1,300 new homes by 2025

  • Quintain launches Masterplan for most connected village in Ireland
  • Extensive public parks, transport links and community amenities
  • Located on 65-acre site with views over the Dublin Mountains and the Irish Sea

Quintain, one of the largest residential developers in Ireland, today launches its Masterplan for Cherrywood Village, which will deliver 1,300 new homes in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Co Dublin by 2025.

Cherrywood Village is located on a 65-acre site within the Cherrywood Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) and will comprise a mix of new houses, duplexes and apartments with two public parks, 27 acres of green space, and over 4,300m² of retail and civic amenities in the village centre.

The plans for what will be the most connected village in Ireland and have been made available today at www.cherrywoodvillage.ie, where prospective homeowners can register for a tour of the site.

The project has been designed to create a diverse new community that will be easily accessible by public transport, with a strong emphasis on sustainable development that protects existing heritage sites.

The Laughanstown Luas Station is located at the heart of the project, and there will also be extensive cycle paths and walking routes, including The Cherrywood Way, which will connect the village to Loughlinstown to the south, and Foxrock to the north through a network of greenways.

Quintain plans to start construction before the end of the year, with the first homes completed by mid-2021. There is an ambitious timeline for the project that will see all 1,300 homes built and the Village fully occupied by 2025.

Cherrywood Village is situated close to major employers like Vodafone and Microsoft in Sandyford, and Dell and Elavon in Cherrywood Science and Technology Park. Quintain is also factoring the increase in working from home into its plans and looking at innovative options to incorporate office space into its new houses, and to build more shared workspace in its apartment developments.

The Masterplan will build on a large network of infrastructure that is already in place, including a road network, the Green Luas line, and public parks. The fully completed Beckett Park has an abundance of amenities include all weather sports pitches, tennis courts, jogging tracks, a boules court, an outdoor gym, playground, and a sport pavilion with changing facilities and café.  Tully Park has been completed on the western side of the site and is built around early Christian monuments and Tully Church dating from ninth century.

Cherrywood Educate Together National School, adjacent to Tully Park, opened in September, and a secondary school is expected to open in September 2021.

Eddie Byrne Joint Managing Director Quintain Ireland said:

“We are excited to be launching this Masterplan for what will be the most connected village in Ireland, putting community, accessibility and sustainability at the centre of its plans. Cherrywood Village will deliver much needed new housing supply to an area that is well-connected to existing infrastructure and amenities. The 1,300 homes we are planning will cater to a range of different housing needs with a particular focus on young families and first-time buyers.”


Michael Hynes, Joint Managing Partner of Quintain said:

“Cherrywood Village is in a stunning location with views of both the Irish Sea and the Dublin Mountains. Cycleways and pedestrian routes will link to the LUAS and Dublin Bus stops, and a vibrant village centre will provide shops, restaurants and cafés, and crèche facilities. Our design approach will incorporate features to facilitate working from home, and deliver a high standard of energy efficiency.”


Cherrywood Village represents around half of Quintain’s 118-acre land holding in the area that was acquired last year from Hines and King Street Capital. When fully developed, Quintain will deliver over 3,000 new homes in an area with extensive transport links and high-quality local amenities. 

In addition to its land holdings at Cherrywood, Quintain will be responsible for the residential development of a further 340 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, and Portmarnock. Overall Quintain plans to develop 600,000 sq. ft. of commercial space and more than 9,000 new homes making it one of the largest residential developer in the country.

Quintain receives planning permission for 245 new homes in Lucan

·      Latest Quintain development for Adamstown Strategic Development Zone
·      Gross development value of project of c.€82m
·       Mixed development of apartments, duplexes and 3 and 4-bed houses
·       Development will also include a new park and new primary school

Quintain has received planning permission to construct 245 new homes at Tandy’s Lane in Lucan. The site is around 20 acres in size and includes a large linear park running through the neighbourhood providing high visual and social amenity value.

The site has a gross development value of c.€82 million and construction will begin at the end of the year, with the first homes coming to market in the middle of 2021. The development will include 213 houses, 16 duplexes and 15 apartments. The range of unit types provided will allow for lifetime living whereby people can trade up or down within the scheme should the need arise.  This in turn lends itself to the creation of a diverse community.

Tandy’s Lane Village is close to Quintain’s Somerton development where the first phase is complete. Both developments are near the amenities of Lucan town centre, as well as transport links offered by the M4 and N4 and Adamstown rail station.
A standout feature of this new Quintain neighbourhood is the crescent of houses facing the attractive linear Serpentine Park, which in turns connects to the bigger 20-acre Tandy’s Lane Village Park, ensuring the development contains meaningful open spaces.

Quintain have also reached agreement in principle for the delivery of a new primary school at Tandy’s Lane with the Department of Education. They are targeting a 2023 opening for this new primary school. Delivering new schools in tandem with new housing is a vital part of Quintain’s development philosophy which is to create sustainable new communities with amenities and open space placemaking an essential component.

Quintain is developing 220 acres in the Adamstown/Lucan area, where it plans to develop over 4,000 new homes and 600,000 sq.ft. of commercial space. The company’s broader land portfolio covers 460 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, Portmarnock, and Cherrywood, and when developed will make Quintain the third largest residential developer in the country.

Michael Hynes, Joint Managing Partner of Quintain Ireland, said:
“We are delighted to be making further progress on our residential pipeline in the Lucan area with this planning approval for Tandy’s Lane Village. These 245 homes will form part of a growing community with access to green space and school facilities, and the wider amenities of Lucan on the doorstep with easy access to Dublin city centre.
These homes will be completed to the high building standards and leading environmental specifications that Quintain guarantees to its buyers. They represent the latest stage in Quintain’s plans to deliver 9,000 homes across four sites in the Greater Dublin area.”

The 245 planned new homes include:
·       45 four-bedroom houses
·       169 three-bedroom houses
·       8 three-bedroom duplexes
·       8 two-bedroom duplexes
·       2 one-bedroom apartments
·       13 two-bedroom apartments

Just like Dún Sí, the new homes will provide residents with a travel time of less than 20 minutes by Dart to Connolly Station and are located just minutes from Dublin Airport, the Port Tunnel, the M1 and the M50. Residents will have easy access to Portmarnock Village, the sandy coastline of Velvet Strand, and several high-quality local schools.

These new homes will continue these high standards and provide home owners with a fantastic opportunity to live close to the sea and Portmarnock village, but with an easy commute to their place of work.”

Quintain launches Irish subsidiary to develop more than 9,000 homes

·       Will oversee 460 acres of prime development land in Ireland
·       Led by experienced Irish management team, Eddie Byrne and Michael Hynes
·       Assets will make Quintain the third largest residential developer in Ireland

Quintain Limited has established a subsidiary in Ireland with plans to develop more than 9,000 new homes and 600,000 sq. ft of commercial space. The newly incorporated business, known as Quintain Ireland, will be responsible for the residential development of over 460 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, Portmarnock, and Cherrywood. All these sites are owned by affiliates of Lone Star Funds and will be managed directly by Quintain.

The business will launch with an experienced 12-person team focused solely on Ireland, jointly led by Eddie Byrne and Michael Hynes. The Quintain team in Ireland is expected to grow to over 25 next year and will manage a range of local construction partners. The Irish team will be fully integrated with the wider London-based team.

Quintain will be resourced to replicate in Ireland the parent company’s strong record of delivery in London.  The existing Irish portfolio, covering over 460 acres, will make Quintain the third largest residential developer in the country. Adamstown can accommodate approximately 5,000 homes across 220 acres of land, with further land at the neighbouring Clonburris site, to build approximately 350 houses; the recently acquired Cherrywood site is 120 acres and has an expected capacity of 3,000 homes; and the 87 acres in Portmarnock has the potential for 1,000 homes. The company intends to utilise its extensive experience to deliver market leading developments on its existing portfolio with a strong appetite to expand its portfolio of future development projects.

The decision to expand into Ireland follows the increase in demand for housing, especially in the Greater Dublin area, as more people move to take advantage of the strong economy and job opportunities.

James Saunders, Chief Executive of Quintain Limited, said:
“Quintain has been actively looking at new opportunities to expand its business for some time and I am therefore extremely proud to announce our expansion into Ireland, with a huge commitment to take on the delivery of more than 9,000 homes across four sites spanning 460 acres in Greater Dublin.
We have an established team on the ground in Ireland led by Eddie Byrne and Michael Hynes, who have over 40 years’ experience in the Irish and international property market. When you mix this local expertise with Quintain’s track record in taking forward major mixed-use development schemes, I am confident we will turn these sites into exemplary new places.
Alongside our Irish business, we remain focussed on continuing to invest and build out our flagship Wembley Park development in London and have further appetite to secure more development opportunities in the UK and Ireland.”

Eddie Byrne, Joint Managing Partner of Quintain Ireland, said:
“We are excited to launch this new venture, with the potential to deliver more than 9,000 new homes in the Greater Dublin area, where there is a pressing need for increased housing supply. Quintain Ireland will combine the knowledge of our team on the ground with the wealth of expertise of our parent company in delivering major residential projects. In 2020 we expect to more than double the size of our team in Ireland and expand our development pipeline.”
