Samaritans is the only charity in Ireland offering emotional support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for anyone who needs someone. We have been supporting people in Ireland since 1960 through our phone helpline, email and face-to-face support and outreach in the community. We have had millions of potentially life-saving conversations over the past 60 years.

We deliver the Samaritans service through 21 local branches on the island of Ireland (13 in RoI and 8 in NI). Each branch is run independently by a network of volunteers, with support given from the Samaritans Ireland office staff on Usher's Quay, Dublin.


Samaritans provide a 24-hour helpline service for people who are in distress, lonely, struggling to cope & who are in need of emotional support, including those who are feeling suicidal.

Volunteers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on the freephone helpline number 116 123 & email [email protected] - answering over 600,000 calls for help each year.

Samaritans Ireland is the national umbrella organisation which supports the work of Samaritans branches throughout the island of Ireland.

where your money goes

Just 53% of our annual income is statutory funding from the Health Service Executive (HSE). Additional funding is made up from corporate and public donations, and legacies.

These funds support the branch network nationwide, which has suffered considerable loss in fundraising due to Covid-19 restrictions.
