Founded in 1974 by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and operated as a ‘not for profit’ charitable foundation (CHY 5840). Uniquely designed and purpose built to cater for the elderly, Carrigoran House prides itself on its long track record in setting new standards in care and retirement and offering and maintaining the highest standards and comfort to our guests.
Carrigoran House had its beginnings caring for a small number of local residents in a modest cottage.
The mission of the House commenced when a homeless woman arrived at the convent and requested care and respite. It grew from there to a 113 bed centre that offers a variety of services to residents of the immediate areas of Shannon, Newmarket on Fergus and Limerick City and the wider communities of Counties Clare. Limerick and North Tipperary.
