Graham Dwyer's house

This is the former home of convicted murderer Graham Dwyer.

It is situated at 6 Kerrymount Close in Foxrock, Dublin.

Dwyer lived in this 3-bedroom house with his wife, Gemma, and their two children until his arrest in October 2013.

In August 2012, the architect murdered 36-year-old childcare worker Elaine O'Hara and dumped her remains at a remote spot on Killakee Mountain in the south of County Dublin.

To this day, it remains one of Ireland's most high-profile murders.

When O'Hara went missing, her friends and family were initially concerned that she had committed suicide, as she was prone to self-harm and had been in and out of psychiatric care since the age of 16.

However, in September 2013, three fishermen at the Vartry Reservoir in Wicklow discovered evidence that would turn the missing person case upside down.

On September 10th, 2013, the men found a bag containing clothes, handcuffs, and restraints. This led to a larger search of the reservoir and the discovery of a knife and two phones. The phones in question contained text messages from Dwyer in which he spoke about his urge to "rape, stab, or kill".

Also found among the items was a supermarket loyalty card, which the Irish police were able to trace back to O'Hara.

In a remarkable coincidence, a dog walker named Magali Vergnet discovered O'Hara's skeletal remains on Killakee Mountain three days later.

On September 13th, 2013, Vergnet's dog, Millie, disappeared into some bushes.

When Vergnet went looking for Millie, she found her chewing on a bone. There were also pieces of clothing scattered on the ground nearby.

Concerned that the bones were human, Magali left and sought the help of the landowner and her friend. The three of them then returned to the site shortly afterwards to take a better look.

It was at this stage that they spotted a human jawbone and called the police.

After 13 months, the remains of Elaine O'Hara had finally been found.

During their investigation, detectives uncovered information that linked O'Hara to an architect named Graham Dwyer. They also learned that the pair had been in a secret relationship involving violence and bondage.

Using data from Dwyer's work phone, investigators were able to piece together all of the locations that he had visited over the previous months.

On October 17th, 2013, the police arrived at this quiet cul-de-sac in Foxrock and arrested Dwyer for murder. A search of the house was carried out, and several items of interest were seized.

Dwyer went on trial for O'Hara's murder in 2015.

After two months of testimony that included 197 witnesses and 320 exhibits, he was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison.

Following Dwyer's conviction, his wife, Gemma, and their two children moved out of their family home in Foxrock.

The property remained vacant for a number of years, during which it was reportedly burgled a number of times.

In November 2019, the house was listed on the market for €595,000. Two months later, it was sold for an undisclosed price.

The Dwyer family moved into the house in August 2007. Previously, they had lived in a cottage in Rathmines.

Initially, they had ambitious plans to renovate the property. However, Dwyer's wife, Gemma Healy, lost her job after the financial crisis hit in 2008. His employer had also forced him to accept a significant pay cut.

Dwyer and his wife share the same birthday. Coincidentally, they were celebrating their birthdays at a Mexican restaurant on the exact same day that O'Hara's skeletal remains were discovered on Killakee Mountain.

Newspaper reports indicate that Gemma and Dwyer are now estranged. In 2019, she visited him twice in prison to present him with papers to sign. She did not visit him at all in 2020.

Vartry Reservoir in Wicklow

Vartry Reservoir in Wicklow

Three fishermen discovered two phones, a knife, and O'Hara's loyalty card at the Vartry Reservoir in Wicklow.

At the time, the water in this man-made lake was at its lowest level, as Ireland was experiencing its hottest summer in 18 years.

Usually, the reservoir is about 6 meters deep. However, by September 2013, the water levels had fallen to just under half a meter.

This significant drop exposed the items that eventually led to Dwyer's arrest.

Low water levels

Vartry Reservoir

Incriminating evidence was recovered from Vartry Reservoir after the water fell well below normal levels.

Had Ireland not experienced such a dry summer, Dwyer would still be free today.



During the murder trial, Dwyer's wife said that a spade found near O'Hara's remains looked similar to the spade that went missing from this garden.

She also said that the "orangey red" paint droplets on the handle of the spade looked like the paint that her husband had used to treat their fence and shed.

Although the paint was very similar, a technical examination found that they were not identical.
