Coronavirus (Covid-19) latest information

The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents, staff and Sisters remains our top priority. We are cautiously resuming visits to some Nazareth Houses and facilities where the infection risk is low and visits can be conducted safely. Before travelling, please contact the house to check whether it is open, make an appointment to visit and follow the visiting requirements. Houses in some locations remain closed to visitors. We will keep the position under review and may need to close a home to visitors at short notice to protect those in our care. For further information please contact the relevant Nazareth House or service. Contact information can be found on each house page. We thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Nazareth House overlooks breath-taking views of the Inishowen Peninsula. We have been here since 1981, where it has been and continues to be, our privilege to enable you to live life to the full.

Nazareth House Dublin

Situated on eight acres of rolling parkland close to the city centre, Nazareth House opened in 1970 to provide care for older people in the North Dublin area. Since then we have kept our traditional core values and ethos while constantly updating our facilities and raising our standard of care.

Nazareth House Camberwell

Nazareth House Camberwell is a 100 bed accredited residential aged care facility founded in 1929 providing care to residents of all faiths and denominations. Located within spacious grounds in the leafy suburb of Camberwell and within close proximity to local amenities and transport links with ample onsite parking. The community of Sisters provides spiritual, pastoral and emotional support to residents. Daily mass, rosary and other services are celebrated onsite in our expansive and recently renovated chapel which will always be at the heart of our Nazareth community.
