Our Home is really focused on ensuring residents
are in a calm environment with the knowledge they are free to
live how they choose to.

Aperee Living Belgooly is ideally located near the pretty seaside town of Kinsale in West Cork and is within easy reach of Cork City. Situated in a delightful period residential estate with 14 acres of mature grounds, our home accommodates 68 residents in both single and sharing ensuite bedrooms. 

Aperee Living Belgooly has a proud tradition of being involved in the local community, and our residents have been involved in some wonderful community projects. Recently, Aperee Living Belgooly was part of the Caring Together Initiative, a campaign led by Nursing Homes Ireland which aims to reduce the stigma associated with nursing homes. We are delighted to have achieved recognition for our efforts to create happy homes for our residents.

We are always focused on the wellbeing of our residents, and we do all we can to create a warm, secure and comfortable environment for you. As soon as you come to our home, you’ll have access to a dedicated team of carers who will make sure you’re fully part of life in our nursing home and that you’re valued for who you are. The dedication, commitment and competence of our staff helps us achieve the highest standards of care.

We make sure our residents can relax in a quiet, peaceful and safe setting, with extensive grounds that are ideal for walking and relaxation. Our enclosed garden is filled with flora and fauna. One of its most striking features is a large enclosed pond, and all our residents and visitors comment on how therapeutic and relaxing it is. All our nursing home rooms are modern, tastefully decorated and give you access to the gardens. We also offer a choice of day rooms, conservatories, and an elegant dining room for you to relax in.

In 2017, we completed a major renovation programme to revamp the older parts of Aperee Living Belgooly. As part of this, we replaced multiple-occupancy bedrooms with double and single rooms that have ensuite bathrooms, to give you dignity and privacy. On top of that, we added another 26 bedrooms in 2019, so there’s plenty of room for everyone.
