Harcourt Developments is one of Ireland’s largest privately-owned property companies. Retained assets include business parks, shopping centres, visitor attractions and hotels in nine different countries. The Group provides full-time employment to over 1500 people.

An important part of our philosophy is to integrate cultural and artistic elements into all our projects, adding long term value to the civic space and enhancing local communities. Arts and culture can help to enrich the public realm and shape the identities of places.

Harcourt's proven commitment to the arts, architecture, social issues and the environment has been recognised by many awards. We pride ourselves on creating beautiful buildings and attractive amenities, revitalising urban spaces, and planning for the future.


We evaluate and manage property investments to deliver strong and sustainable investment returns. While continuing to develop, we manage a prime investment portfolio generating revenue from a combination of retail, offices, industrial, leisure and residential accommodation. 


Pat Doherty, chairman and founder of Harcourt Developments, established a successful construction business in London in the early 1960s and went on to grow a property portfolio which became the origin of Harcourt. His unique skill in evaluating opportunities and his judgement and expertise has been the driving force behind Harcourt.
The Company remains a family-owned business.
