Pavement & Patio Contractor

Your home’s exterior is often the last concern when embarking on a new construction journey. Still, pavements and patios can make a tremendous first impression and contribute to your home’s overall aesthetic appeal.

We have all become more inclined to spend time in our gardens recently, especially throughout the summer months. When looking to enhance your garden, one of the first things to look at is walkways, pavements and patios. However, you may have a current patio or none at all, or you may want to create or expand upon an existing area.

At Castle Masons, we can assist and inform you on the best solution for your garden. When it comes to material selection, we can provide access to quality products, including many different types of slabs and bricks. This allows you to get the colour and style that you would like to match your existing architecture.

We work with you to determine what you have in mind, and together we can create a stunning look to your home, garden, patio, and any other property that you may want to improve aesthetically. We also provide this service for commercial and public spaces.

Types of Patio Slabs Typically Used in Ireland


Sandstone is widely used for patio areas in Ireland due to its exceptional weather resistance and durability. It has a high aesthetic appeal with a variety of colour and pattern options that enhances the overall look of your garden or external space. Sandstone requires little maintenance, making it an attractive choice for home owners.


Its natural beauty with a range of colours adds an elegant touch to any patio design, while the textured surface ensures slip resistance and safety. The premium appearance of granite also adds value to the property, making it a sought-after option for homeowners looking for a durable and stylish patio solution in the Irish climate.


Limestone is also a favoured option for Irish patios for several reasons. Its natural beauty and earthy tones lend a timeless and elegant look to outdoor spaces. Its durability and resistance to harsh weather makes it an ideal solution for the Irish climate. Limestone is relatively low maintenance and can retain its appearance for years with regular care.

Concrete Paving

Concrete paving is also a popular choice for Irish homeowners looking for a versatile and affordable patio solution. Concrete slabs offer a wide range of design options, including various colours, patterns, and textures, making it adaptable to different aesthetic preferences and patio styles. It can also be designed to offer slip resistance for added peace of mind and safety.

Common Questions from Clients

What Patio Material is best suited to the Irish climate?

Generally speaking, sandstone, granite, limestone and concrete are well-suited to our Irish weather. They have long lasting visual-appeal if cared for correctly, but we can discuss the ins and outs of each material option at our initial consultation. Usually, material choice comes down to budget and the overall look you wish to achieve.

What is the cost of installing a patio?

The cost of installing a patio can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of the patio, the type of materials used, the complexity of the design, and the location. Feel free to contact us for a free quotation.

Is there any drainage considerations for a patio?

Yes, well-planned drainage is an essential consideration for any patio installation. Without adequate drainage, water can accumulate on the patio surface, leading to potential issues such as water pooling, erosion, and damage to the patio materials over time. We consider slope, grading, surface drainage, downspouts and guttering when planning your patio installation.

Can you provide examples or references from previous patio projects?

Yes, we invite you to visit our project section to discover some of our latest work. We can also provide more examples along with testimonials from past clients.
