Healthcare in Dublin

Healthcare in Dublin is first-rate and the city's hospitals offer quality care and treatment. Ireland's healthcare scheme gives free or subsidised access to expats planning to reside in Ireland for one year or more. Nationals of EU countries have similar benefits.

Usually, a general practitioner first recommends a patient to receive care in a hospital. Patients who are treated at a hospital without a doctor’s referral are charged. Waiting lists for treatment can become long, sometimes even for urgent care. This has led many locals and expats to opt to pay for private insurance.

Private medical insurance in Ireland gives expats access to private hospitals and medical facilities with no waiting lists, though expats with overseas insurance should check which hospitals accept their coverage. Many companies that employ expats in Dublin offer private insurance.
