Key factors in our success include stringent quality control, efficient turnaround times, and effectiveness to provide superior customer service at all times.


Our History

Murphy Surveys was established in 1983 by Peter Murphy; a visionary of his time in the field of surveying. He believed that the future of the industry lay in technological progression, and from the very beginning he knew the key to Murphy Surveys’ success was to leverage this to deliver a more efficient and quality-focused service, with precision as the cornerstone. Prior to the establishment of Murphy Surveys, Peter had learned his craft well as Chief Surveyor at Tara Mines and Aughinish Alumina. Peter Murphy was awarded a fellowship of the Institute of Surveyors in recognition of his contribution to the industry.

Murphy Surveys has grown from a small, family-run business to the largest survey company in Ireland. When faced with adversity upon Peter Murphy’s passing in 1995, a new generation of Murphy Surveys began; the ethos for continual progression remaining firmly in the company culture.

Over 30 years later, Murphy Surveys has offices in Kildare, Dublin, Cork, Belfast, London, Manchester and Glasgow. We employ more than 200 staff and offer world-class solutions globally to public and private sector clients, including government bodies and blue chip companies. We have grown year on year – even through recession – because of our innovation and core understanding of our clients’ needs.


Our Mission

Murphy Surveys are dedicated to the provision of comprehensive and cost-effective survey solutions to public and private organisations globally, across a vast range of sectors. We recognise that our growth is driven by our client-centred approach, our technologically-advanced and innovative services, our highly skilled and experienced personnel, our proven methods and outstanding quality control, and our ongoing investment in the latest technologies and equipment.
