The Building


The Malt House was originally constructed in the late 19th century by the Guinness family, to serve as a grain store. The building was connected to the brewery in St. James’ Gate via the Grand Canal and River Liffey. It continued to function until the late 20th Century.

In 1995, as part of a large scale urban renewal and regeneration project, the building was redeveloped to provide a mix of uses including a restaurant on the ground floor and a combination of office and residential accommodation on the upper floors.

Today all that remains of the 19th century fabric is the external walls and two internal walls which separate the North, Central and Southern portions of the building.

Malt House South


This iconic development will provide a contrasting blend of Victorian and contemporary design, with a stunning 4 storey glass extension rising above the existing stone clad building.

Malt House South boasts over 60 metres of unobstructed views of the Grand Canal basin and upon completion the development will comprise of approximately 30,000 sq. ft. of vibrant office space over 8 floors ranging in size from approximately 2,200 sq. ft. to 4,800 sq. ft.


Malt House is targeting a LEED V4 Gold rating.  The key sustainable items contributing to the highly coveted award are;

  • Re-use of an existing city centre building – resulting in a lower carbon footprint as the quantity of new materials is reduced, with less waste transported from site.

  • Multiple accessible transport links within a short walk including Dublin Bus, Luas & Rail/DART services, with excellent connections to all areas of Dublin and the surrounding area.  In addition, numerous amenities (cafes, shops, etc.) are within a short walking distance for future occupants to enjoy.

  • Reduction in water use – water efficient sanitary fixtures specified to reduce the overall building water consumption.

  • The materials specification developed to ensure specification of products and systems produced regionally, containing high levels of recycled content, with sustainable certification which will reduce the buildings carbon footprint

  • Excellent indoor air quality – with low VOC finishes to ensure a healthy indoor environment.

  • Energy efficient mechanical and electrical design to maximise energy efficiency within the building
