Our Story

Ballymore is a developer with vast and varied experience, acknowledged as pioneers of some of Europe’s largest regeneration projects. Today, we remain owned and managed by the Mulryan family. Chairman and Group Chief Executive Sean Mulryan founded the business with his wife Bernardine Mulryan, in Ireland, in 1982.

We work in complex urban settings both new and old. In emerging markets, we create transformation and opportunity with ambitious mixed-use developments like Eurovea in Bratislava and we carry out sensitive modernisation in established and historic cityscapes like Old Spitalfields Market in the City of London.

"Today, we remain 100% owned and managed by Sean Mulryan and his family, who founded the business, in Ireland, in 1982"

Our development vision is creative, carefully executed and broad in scope, from five-star hotels in Prague to housing developments in Greater Dublin. We’ve created and delivered corporate headquarters for KPMG and Barclays Bank Plc, and our developments at Pan Peninsula, Providence Tower and Wardian in London have established three of Europe’s tallest residential addresses.

Ballymore takes its responsibility as a place maker very seriously, putting quality of life and a connection to arts and culture at the core of our work. We developed a new headquarters for English National Ballet on London City Island, our ground-breaking project just south of Canary Wharf. We worked alongside the US government to move their embassy from Grosvenor Square to Embassy Gardens at Nine Elms, establishing a new riverside cultural district for the city and signalling a major shift in London’s diplomatic centre of gravity.

“The scale and ambition of our work has grown with the business.”

Today, after 40 years in business, we are one of the UK and Ireland's most innovative and dynamic property developers, having completed more than 7,000 homes in the UK and Ireland in the past five years. Our residential portfolio pipeline give us the capacity to add a further 15,000 homes to meet future demand, and we’re adding to our commercial, retail and leisure portfolio, with around 4.5 million sq ft of commercial space in our planning pipeline.

Yet, as the scale and ambition of our work grows, we never forget the importance of working to the highest standards on every individual element of every development, creating places in which people, business, culture and society can thrive.
