MG Architects DonegalMichael Galbraith Architects are an established RIAI registered architectural practice based in Buncrana, Co. Donegal. Michael Galbraith founded the practice in 1990 and worked tirelessly to gain the strong practice reputation that it holds today. His daughters, Anita & Breege, now run the practice after Michael’s passing in 2016.

MGA work with many different project types from small domestic extensions to large commercial developments. Practical experience together with theoretical building/design studies have made us aware that a building must function in harmony with the needs of its users and that this is fundamental in achieving a successful design solution and completed project. We believe in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and consider it essential for the professional architect to remain in touch with the changing technology and standards. We have a wide range of experience in projects which encompass all aspects of the professional architect’s private practice - including private and social housing, commercial and industrial buildings, hospital refurbishments, school renovations, housing development schemes, hotels and leisure projects.

It is our policy to provide quality and confidentiality in our work to all our clients and we are confident that our reputation for providing a professional service is the key to our continued success.
