Out with the old, in with the new.
Welcome to the new Doran Estate website. As you may have noticed we have updated our branding. During this extraordinary time we have taken the opportunity to reflect on our beginnings and envisage where we see ourselves over the coming years enabling us to create a new brand image that best represents Doran Estates and the premium service that we provide.
Over the past fourteen years our steady growth has brought new clients, new team members, and moved us into a new modern purpose built sales office located on a high street. The new identity had to satisfy all of the existing expectations of what our original identity stood for, while simultaneously moving the brand forward to acknowledge the maturity, accessibility, and excellence of our service.
You will see it’s not just our logo that is changing. We’ve changed our website, our social media, our messaging, and our focus is still on helping our clients to succeed. What we’re saying shouldn’t be unfamiliar to our existing client base.
We are proud of what we have achieved at Doran Estates over the last fourteen years and we owe our success to the team members, the partnerships that we have made and the clients that have supported us along this tough journey.
We owe this rebrand to all of you.
Our Door is Always Open!
Stay Safe, Stay Home.

Renting during Covid-19
Covid-19 has brought significant challenges to both landlord
and tenants. On the 27th of March, the Dáil passed an emergency legislation
which included measures to protect and support tenants during this uncertain
The Covid-19 Act 2020 introduced moratoriums on both rent increases and notices of termination. This means that rent increases and notices of termination cannot be issued while this legislation is in place. If either was issued prior to the 27th of March 2020, its effect is paused until the legislation is lifted. The legislation is to be lifted three months following its commencement, however it may be extended depending on the Health Authories advice to the government.
Advice for tenants renting
While tenants are obliged to continue to pay their full rent,
the government have taken several measures to provide tenants with financial
support. If you are renting and your employment has been affected by Covid-19,
we recommend that you apply for rent supplement which is a means-tested payment
from the government. The Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment may also be
available to you if your income has been affected. In order to apply for either
payments, you can contact your local Intreo Centre by phone or email. For
safety purposes, the applications can be done online so you do not have to
visit the Intreo Centre itself.
For further information on the emergency measures taken
during Covid-19, the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) have a helpful download available
to the public, which answers frequently answered questions on the subject.
