Brídhaven Nursing Home opened with 24 beds in 1989, 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.

The home was recently acquired by Virtue Integrated Care in early in 2021.

Brídhaven Nursing Home is situated in the town of Mallow, County Cork, approximately thirty-five kilometres north of Cork city and a twenty-five-minute drive. It is known as the ‘Crossroads of Munster’ and is Cork’s largest town.


Excellent clinical care is of utmost importance for us but we don’t stop there.  We appreciate that life’s little things mean a lot so we take our time to really get to know what matters to our residents.  We are passionate about doing everything we can to make sure our residents have joy in their lives, a sense of purpose and feel at home in their surroundings.

Person and Family Centered Care is at the core of our ethos.  We recognise that a resident’s experience of care is better when we have a collaborative relationship with families.  We have a new dedicated Resident & family liaison manager who provides family support and consultation.
