Middletown House Nursing Home & Retirement Village

Middletown House is set in just over four acres of landscaped gardens.

It originally formed part of Lord Courtown’s estate and is mentioned in Historical records dating back as far as the early 17th century.

Middletown House was built as a gothic style house. The present house dates back to the 19th century and was used as a hotel before becoming a Nursing Home in 1984.

Middletown House has since undergone considerable development in line with its new role as a Nursing Home. Great care has been taken to conserve the character of the original building and surrounding grounds.

We are located 1 mile from Courtown and 4 miles from Gorey town.
