Raheny House Nursing Home

In the early 1980’s the Garda Siochana Benevolent Society became aware and concerned for the needs of retired members and their spouses and so set about providing a suitable retirement home.

Raheny House was acquired in 1984 and after extensive refurbishment works opened its doors to retired Gardai and their spouses as well as those who had no connection to the Gardai.

 

In March 2010 the home was acquired by Arbour Care Group and underwent

further renovations and up-grades whilst retaing its homley and friendly

ambiance.

The home is currently fully registered with no conditions and can accomodate 42 residents.
