Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services - Blackrock Hospice

Welcome to Blackrock Hospice

Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services Blackrock Hospice was established in 2003 and we provide Specialist Palliative Care in our 12 bed in-patient unit, our out-patient services as well as in patients own homes via our Specialist Community Palliative Care Team (CPCT). In 2022, Blackrock Hospice underwent a significant refurbishment that included extending our patient bedrooms and upgrades to clinical, patient and communal areas. The site was closed throughout 2022 to allow for these substantial works and will reopen to patient admissions in January 2023.

What is Palliative Care?

We provide Specialist Palliative Care in both our in-patient unit as well as in patient’s own homes.

Our multi-disciplinary specialist teams include both clinical and non-clinical staff.

Patients requiring our specialist support are referred to our team by their GP or hospital Consultant.
