At Bloomfield Hospital, we’re on a mission to provide outstanding treatment and state-of-the-art support to adults with severe and enduring mental health needs. 

We are Bloomfield Hospital

For more than 200 years, Bloomfield Hospital has provided specialised treatment, care, and support to adults with a range of severe and enduring mental health issues and neuropsychiatric disorders including Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, schizophrenia, and Parkinson’s disease.

Set at the foot of the Dublin mountains, our purpose-built facilities and landscaped grounds offer state-of-the-art care as well as rest and recuperation. Bloomfield is more than a hospital; it is a second home, a place where our residents are made to feel comfortable, welcome, and cared for.
