The Nursing Home is situated approximately 15 miles north east of Galway City, adjacent to Ballyglunin Train Station famous for its part in the film “The Quiet Man”. This station is being re-opened as part of phase one of the New Western Railway corridor linking with Galway City.

Brooklodge stands on four acres of landscaped private grounds adjacent to the river Abbert and bordering Blake’s Castle and Estate.
