McKeon Group was commissioned to implement an interior refurbishment and maintenance update on the 12th Century Malahide Castle, to bring the derelict space in the castle back to life for use in the museum’s public installation.



The key factor in the success of this project was the Meticulous Attention to Detail given to the intricate and ornate fixtures and finishes in this Historic Building.


McKeon Group Craftspeople Nurtured this Project a labour of love, included restoration of existing floor boards, careful installation of new floor finishes memetic of their surroundings, discreet opening up for fire-stopping and services, a completely New Electrical Layout, Re-Wiring and Protective Services.


Also, sliding sash window restoration, bespoke fire doors and fine finishes such as carpeting and painting. Unique Measures were taken to ensure the building and its contents were protected and surprises were aplenty, for example, glass shards were found protruding from the walls which was later revealed to be an ancient rodent control technique, walls opened to reveal storage areas and long lost fire places.
