The most active conservation-oriented developer in Ireland in recent years is Oakmount, the development vehicle founded by Paddy McKillen jr and Matt Ryan. Though best known for their hospitality business Press-Up, their conservation work, not alone in Dublin, but also around the country has resulted in an impressive portfolio of old properties that have been given a new lease of life.

This year, Oakmount’s most ambitious conservation projects will be unveiled: Clerys on O’Connell Street.
