Hiqa Reports

Lisheen Nursing Home is a purpose built privately owned nursing home which has been run by the Joys for the past twenty three years.
Lisheen is built on a landscaped site with views of the countryside.

Previously Lisheen was the home of Christy Brown, who was born with severe cerebral palsy, then became an artist and distinguished author, writing “My Left Foot”, “Down all the Days, and “Of Snails and Skylarks”.
A painting by Christy Brown hangs in the hallway.

Lisheen Nursing Home is designed to provide a pleasant living environment so that when you walk through the door you feel comfortable and at ease.

They have for many years provided Day Care for persons in the locality for periods of time prior to hospital / nursing home admission.
This has been a great benefit to many families and can also make the transition into long term care easier for the resident.

The centre is located in Rathcoole Village in South County Dublin. Rathcoole is on the N7, approximately 10 km from Dublin city Centre, close to shops, community centre, churches and Avoca Handweavers.
