Gormanston Wood Nursing Home is ideally located just minutes from the beach and the M1 motorway, close to Balbriggan and 15 mins from Drogheda and Swords. It is well serviced by public transport including a regular bus service. We aim to provide a service with the resident front and center in an atmosphere of welcome and caring.
Gormanston Wood is well established within the community and has its own respected history. It maintains a country estate feel even though it is located close to the beach with good access to road and rail connections.


  • The home is set in beautiful extensive grounds
  • Internal gardens to enjoy
  • Home cooked food daily using fresh local produce
  • Weekly extensive activity programme


  • Care focused on resident needs
