Marymount University Hospital and Hospice

At Marymount University Hospital & Hospice we offer you three distinct services:

Our Hospital offers respite, intermediate palliative and residential care services for the older person.
Our Hospice offers specialist palliative care services, at both inpatient and community level.
Our Education Centre offers University and other courses, placement and conference facilities.


Marymount University Hospital & Hospice (Marymount) provides specialist palliative care services and services to care for dependent older people. We are located within a state-of-the-art facility providing specialised and expert care to a population base of 560,000 people. 

An independent voluntary hospital governed by a voluntary Board of Directors, Marymount works closely with the statutory health services, is a section 39 organisation under the Health Act 2004 and a registered charity. 

Its origins date back to 1870 with its foundation by the Religious Sisters of Charity in Cork. The original hospital was built on the north side of the city on Wellington Road. The service relocated in 2011 to purpose-built, modern, high-quality facilities in Curraheen, Cork. 

As the specialist palliative care service for Cork city and county, Marymount Hospice serves as a centre for co-ordinating the delivery of palliative care services across all care settings in Cork. Our services include a 44-bed in-patient unit, a day care service (day hospice), an out-patient department, community-based services and bereavement and family support services. For older people, Marymount Hospital provides long-term care, respite and palliative care support services.
