We believe that by working closely with our customer through all the stages of the project, that our customer becomes the most important member of our team.

Since established in 2013, Placelift has become a leading provider of high-quality building and renovation services throughout Dublin and Wicklow.


In 2011, Clodagh Doyle and her husband were responsible for selling a family member’s property. As the months rolled past with very little interest or viewings, Clodagh felt a more pro-active approach was necessary.  “It was obvious that if we wanted to achieve the best possible price for the property and quickly, that we had to go that extra mile and give this property the competitive edge”.  

“We decided that if we were to show this property in its best light, we needed to focus on what improvements would greatly enhance it.”  “Carrying out a full inspection inside and out, we compiled a long list of recommended improvements.  We were fortunate in that we had the necessary skills and experience to take care of the entire project - seamlessly without any hassle or stress”.

“With my passion and creative flair for all things home improvement and Ivan’s years of building experience, we set about revamping this property.  After all the major repairs, painting and decorating were completed and the property was cleaned, I set about styling the property while Ivan concentrated on the exterior and landscaping.  When our agent revisited, he was so impressed that he immediately took new marketing photographs.  We promptly organised an open viewing, from which a viewer made an offer.  The property sold quickly and for the most we could possible achieve for it at that time.  We had no doubt, that it was down to our focused effort on maximising the potential of our property that got it sold”.  

It was through this experience that Clodagh got the core idea for Placelift.  A company that could seamlessly project manage and execute full home renovations with design in mind from start to finish.  With Ivan's 25 years’ experience in the construction industry and our shared passion for all things home improvement, we had the perfect blend of skills to bring Placelift to fruition.  

“Placelift's offering is perfect for home owners wishing to refurbish and modernise their existing or new home and for property owners hoping to get their house ready for sale or rent, so that they can achieve the best possible return”. 

“Nothing comes close to the genuine job satisfaction we experience following a property transformation on handover day.   Knowing that our clients are completely happy with our services means so much to us.  We are truly passionate about what we do and how we do it – we love what we do!”


“Placelift project managed and undertook the refurbishment of a rental property for me and did a first class job. The project came in on time and on budget with very little direction or involvement from myself. The service, expertise and attention to detail as well as the interior design taste was excellent. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Clodagh and the Placelift team”. - Fergal Feeney (Selling).
