Deerpark Nursing Home

Deerpark is a single storey building in an ‘L’ shape, very easy to navigate for all.

Surrounded by beautiful gardens/fountain etc, plenty of room for walks, and in front of the Galtee Mountains.  We are 3 Kilometres from Tipperary town, easily enough to access by car.

Great effort is made to make the nursing home a ‘home from home’ there are  services going on continually.

Deerpark welcomes visitors at all times. We adapt to suit the resident, and accommodate as best we can, all their wishes, while adhering to HIQA standards at the same time.

We would welcome you to visit us any time, we will glad to show you round, and we can share a ‘cuppa’ and a chat.
