Ave Maria Nursing Home

 

Ave Maria Nursing is a family run nursing home, the proprietors and their children reside on the ground of the nursing home with both children participating in the busy life of the nursing home.

Ave Maria is conveniently located in the picturesque village of Tooreen between Ballyhaunis and Charlestown.

We are close to Knock International Airport and the Marian Shrine in Knock.

Ave Maria is a purposely built single story nursing home with an enclosed garden with Ploy Tunnel at the rear of the building.  This is used by the residents to supply the kitchen with fresh herbs and vegetables.

Many hours are therapeutically spent gardening and collecting free range eggs for breakfast and for making breads.

The nursing home provides a self catering cottage for accommodation to facilitate visitors.  Visitors are welcome at any time.
