Clondalkin Round Tower Visitor Centre
Clondalkin Round Tower is thought to have been built in AD790 and forms a unique part of the heritage landscape of South Dublin. To bring a more immersive experience to visitors to the region, an extensive renovation was undertaken of the nearby 19th century Mill Cottages to transform them into an interactive visitor centre. Calsitherm moisture control boards were fixed to the walls on the ground floor, while Gutex natural woodfibre insulation was used on the first floor. Thermafleece sheep’s wool insulation was then fitted above the flat ceilings and airtightness addressed using Pro Clima tapes and membrane.
