Borris Lodge Nursing Home About Us

Borris Lodge Nursing Home is situated on the out skirts of the beautiful, historic and tranquil village of Borris. It is not far from the towns of Carlow and Kilkenny and just an hour and twenty minutes’ drive from Dublin. Surrounded by mature landscaped gardens the location is unrivalled for peace and serenity and provides the ideal setting for a retirement home for those who wish to enjoy peace, security and a warm friendly homely atmosphere. Scenic tree lined walks and lawns are over looked by Mount Leinster and The Black Stairs Mountains.

At Borris Lodge we provide Nursing care for the ageing, convalescent, and for those who may simply need care during a holiday period. We provide different levels of care with fully trained nurses and care staff on duty 24 hours a day. Our goal is to provide quality nursing care to our residents in a dignified, friendly and safe environment, while at all times respecting their privacy and independence.

Borris Lodge nursing home is operated and managed by Helen and Jimmy O’Keeffe, who are both responsible for the day to day running of the home. Helen and Jimmy are qualified General and Psychiatric Nurses who have worked in Ireland, England and the Middle East. Jimmy is also a qualified Counselor and Hypnotherapist ( not currently practising ) and has a diploma in first line management. They both have extensive experience at operational and managerial levels.

Prospective residents and their family are encouraged to visit the home prior to admission. Within one month of admission we enter a contract of Care with each resident in which we detail rights and entitlements and what we should expect from each other. Details can be requested by contacting Helen O’Keeffe at 059- 9773112.
