Customer Feedback

Imprinted concrete driveway and patio, Blackrock, Co. Dublin

Rated 5 out of 5

Well done to Pat and his team on a fantastic job. We really love our new imprinted concrete driveway and extended patio at the rear. A lot of work was done for a fair price. The job was started earlier than planned and was completed ahead of schedule. The team was well organised by Pat and the labourers were extremely hard working. They were very punctual, clean and obliging. All in all, they paid great attention to detail and had a very professional approach to everything they did. It was obvious that they were very proud of their work. O’Brien Driveways were a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone else.
