Glenaulin is an award-winning, family-run private Nursing Home set in a tranquil corner of Chapelizod, Dublin. Housed in a beautiful period residence, it combines state the art residential nursing home facilities with elegant surroundings.

At Glenaulin, we ensure that residents feel truly at home. Maintaining an independent lifestyle whilst providing security and care for all our residents is of paramount importance to our staff.

Our home combines the best of  modern and traditional and stands amid two acres of parkland where the River Liffey laps gently by. Design for the new extension, completed in 2012 was researched to reflect the importance that facilities have in ensuring optimum quality of life here.

The original house, built for the First Governor of Ireland, Tim Healy in 1903 is part of the architectural heritage of Dublin.   New additions were carefully and sympathetically blended to create the home as it stands today. We consulted specialists in dementia care design regarding layout and decorative features. Our approach also reflects our wish to ensure a pleasant, productive and safe working environment for our staff.


Throughout our 27 year history, we have built a solid reputation of excellence in person-centered quality care.  Today, Glenaulin is one of the leading Nursing Homes in Dublin through our commitment to developing expertise in nursing, nutrition, recreation and quality of life for our residents in our care.
