Brídhaven opened in 1989 with 24 beds, the site having been acquired by the Mills’ Family from the Sisters of Mercy. It is named after Saint Brigid (Irish: Naomh Bríd), one of Ireland’s patron saints. The nursing home offers residential care services to people from Mallow, North Cork, Cork City, and surrounding areas.
Brídhaven was acquired by Virtue Integrated Care in early in 2021 and is situated in the beautiful and vibrant town of Mallow, County Cork.
Mallow is approximately thirty-five kilometres north of Cork city and only a twenty-five-minute drive. The town is known as the ‘Crossroads of Munster’ and is Cork’s largest town.
