The House the Fireman BuiltJanuary 30th 2019
Log homes are a rare sight to see in Ireland and, I had the pleasure of taking photographs some years back for Honka Log Homes who are a leading Nordic company. The owner of this house, Lee Conlon built his rather unique home located in Co. Monaghan. Lee, a local fireman, was determined to build a log home and researched and visited many different homes before settling on the supplier of his choice. The timber regulates the indoor climate, reducing and keeping the humidity levels constant.
The walls of the house consist solely of logs, which are 230mm thick. So without any insulation to speak of, it may be surprising to learn that the house is actually quite easy to heat. Log homes are an increasingly popular alternative for more organic, healthy and ecological living and are certainly quite fascinating to see nestled into the Irish landscape.

We were delighted to provide the marketing imagery for this landmark development.

The Johnstown EstateOctober 9th 2018
I was delighted to work with the entire team at The Johnstown Estate over the course of 8.5 days of photography shooting during late 2017 and 2018. The hotel & spa is set on 120 acres of parkland, overlooking the river Blackwater and nestled between the villages of Johnstownbridge and Enfield.
Contemporary House HowthSeptember 1st 2018
Gareth Byrne Photography was commissioned to photograph a new 2,700 sq. ft contemporary house located on a back land site in Howth for Adrian Hill Architects.
The design of the house looked to create a family house that sits on a triangular site. The aspect of the house aligns itself with a winding driveway and new bridge access.
Victorian House Renovation & ExtensionAugust 15th 2018
Gareth Byrne Photography was delighted to photograph this wonderful Renovation project for Studio Red Architects.
A Protected Villa-Style Victorian House in Ranelagh, Dublin 6, they used a courtyard scheme to maintain light levels to the original garden level spaces. Salvaged Dolphin’s Barn brick is used as would be typical to the rear of this house type. A muted palette of materials is employed for the contemporary addition – polished concrete, brick, zinc, dark framed glazing.
Garryvoe HotelJuly 4th 2018
The Garryvoe Hotel is a family-owned independent four-star hotel. There has been a
hotel on the beach at Garryvoe since the early 1900s and while the world has changed beyond recognition, some things have thankfully remained the same – the golden, sandy, five-mile beach; the view of Ballycotton and its lighthouse.
We have been delighted to be working with the team at Garryvoe since 2016 when they revised the ground floor layout to bring a new air of comfort and sophistication with an enlarged dining area, a bespoke library bar area, a new reception and the culmination is a wonderful sun room facing seawards.
