Welcome to Beaumont Hospital. Our aim is to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients, excellent training to our students, and a friendly, stimulating and professional environment for staff. The information on this website is organised to meet the needs of different types of users. All suggestions for improvement are gratefully received.

Beaumont Hospital is a large academic teaching hospital 5km north of Dublin City centre. We provide emergency and acute care services across 54 medical specialties to a local community of some 290,000 people. In addition, we are a Designated Cancer Centre and the Regional Treatment Centre for Ear, Nose and Throat, and Gastroenterology. We are also the National Referral Centre for Neurosurgery and Neurology, Renal Transplantation, and Cochlear Implantation.

We employ approximately 3,000 staff and have 820 beds. We are the principal teaching hospital for the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. We also enjoy close links with Dublin City University, especially in the area of nurse training, and with other academic institutions in respect of training and research.

St. Joseph's Hospital, Raheny, is under the management of Beaumont Hospital  Board  since the 6th of August 2004. St. Joseph's is an acute Hospital and provides both Medical and Surgical in-patient care, Day Care Services, Outpatient Physiotherapy and Radiology services.  The Hospital has also developed a Rehabilitation Unit. At present St. Joseph's can accommodate 69 patients.


Beaumont Hospital opened in 1987, following the closure and merger of the Charitable Infirmary, Jervis Street and the Richmond Hospital.  Both hospitals had a long and proud tradition of advancing patient care and a strong association with pioneers in medicine, such as Sir Dominic Corrigan.  This tradition of excellence in patient care and clinical research is at the core of our ethos.


Beaumont Hospital plays a leading role in the transformation process in the Irish health services, including establishment of a number of clinical directorates, the development of formal academic and service development links with sister hospitals as part of an academic and regional network.  It looks forward to continuing to strengthen its national and international role in provision of quality health care, innovation and patient management.
