About Us

The €5.5 million project, which was established by the Knights of St. Columbanus and opened in September 2005-. provides 26 en-suite family rooms with a supporting kitchen and lounge.

Our charity is more than just a house or a facility it is a home to the many families that stay here. Brú Columbanus, offers families the gift of time. Enabling them to be close and spend time with their relatives.

Brú Columbanus aims to be the best we can be in everything we do. The families with whom we work, deserve that. Our partners expect it of us and those who support us have shown they trust us to do so. We will ensure all families with a seriously ill patient are accommodated in a calm, caring, welcoming environment. Looking after Families is always our primary responsibility. Being sensitive to and aware of their circumstances is essential at all times.

Brú Columbanus is run by an independent Board of Directors .The overall responsibility for running the house is vested in the Board.
