The Garden Pod provides solutions for people who want a garden office so they can work from home, an art studio (for music, painting, sculpturing, pottery, etc), a children’s playroom or teen den, a home gym, a games room, a therapy room, or simply a refuge of calm outside the house.
Our Garden Pods are well-insulated and thermally efficient, so they’re warm and cosy throughout the winter.
We can supply a combined heating/air-conditioning system to ensure maximum comfort all year round.
We provide our services in the Greater Dublin area. If you're outside that region, just send us an enquiry, using our contact form, saying where you live, and we'll let you know if we can assist.

Expanding your home at low cost
When families need more space, to enable home working, say, or to cope with the needs of a growing family, they generally think of building an extension or moving house.
Having a garden room is a cheaper way of expanding your home – thus avoiding an expensive extension or paying tens of thousands of Euro in order to move to a larger house.
And you stay in the same area you currently live in, thus avoiding changing school or sport club, or removing your children from their current network of friends. Quite apart from all the benefits you get from having a garden room, it’s estimated that it can add up to 7% to the value of your home. Even if you’ve got a small garden, people often find that a fine-looking Garden Pod actually enhances the space.
We give a 10-year structural warranty.
We make every effort to ensure that the Garden Pod, when well maintained, has as long a service life as possible. That’s why we use high-quality materials so that the Garden Pod will look well and perform well for a long time. We offer a routine maintenance visit 4-5 years after the Garden Pod has been installed, to deal with any issues that have arisen.
