Blackrock Hospice Renovation Project

Dec 14, 2021

Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services is undertaking a €6.5 million major renovation of Blackrock Hospice, Sweetman’s Avenue, Blackrock.

Blackrock Hospice will temporarily relocate its services during the extensive building works, which will commence in January 2022 and last for approximately nine months.

This work is important to ensure Blackrock Hospice can meet the needs of the community now and for future generations.


We will be making significant improvements to the environment where we provide our care.

Each of the patients’ en-suite bedrooms will be extended in size and fitted with essential medical equipment that supports our patients with dignity and comfort. The interior environment will provide a sense of calm, warmth and tranquillity. Our beautiful garden and patio areas – much loved by all – will be developed and enhanced.

Clinical and out-patient areas will be upgraded to create a more improved environment for patients and visitors.

Fundraising will fund 100% of the build costs. We have fundraised approximately €4.5 million (70%) to date and we urgently seek the support of the local and business community to reach our target in support of this extensive refurbishment project.


It’s not practical to keep the Hospice open while work is underway so from the 15th December, Blackrock Hospice will relocate temporarily. Patients normally visited in their home, by the Specialist Community Palliative Care team will not experience any changes in their care. Out-patient appointments will be provided for patients at our new base on the Merrion Road.  Those coming to us as in-patients will be offered a bed in our Harold’s Cross or Wicklow Hospice sites depending on their preference and bed availability.


Blackrock Hospice will close to the public from Monday 20th December at 5pm and will reopen in late 2022.


Please continue to support us by phone 01 2064000, online at  or email [email protected] if you would like further information on how you can support this wonderful project.


We look forward to welcoming you back to our new and improved facility in late 2022.



Many thanks
