About Us

Ashbury Private Nursing Home

The Fagan Family are delighted to introduce you to Ashbury Private Nursing Home, situated in Blackrock in the heart of South Co Dublin.

Ashbury Private Nursing Home swings between the old world and the new, with the historic and protected original main house, sitting proudly and protectively over its more modern Grange Wing extension. Ashbury Private Nursing Home has been restored and modernised so that today, its old world charm still abounds, despite incorporating all that one would expect from a premiere nursing and care establishment. It is comprised of two wings, The Main House and The Grange Wing, with a combined capacity for 99 residents. Upon entering Ashbury Private Nursing Home residents and their families will immediately sense the warm and homely atmosphere, creating an environment where residents feel secure, well cared for and very much “at home”.

Ashbury Nursing Home is registered with HIQA and all other relevant authorities. Among its many services Ashbury Private Nursing Home offers its residents daily delivery of newspapers, hairdressing, laundry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetic and nutritional support as well as a limitless array of activity therapies. We celebrate Mass each week and have strong contacts within the community who support our residents of varying denominations. In addition, our 24 hour nursing and care team are on hand to ensure that all nursing, medical, and social needs are tailored to and catered for.

Our wheelchair accessible bus guarantees that we can transport our residents not only to medical and hospital appointments, but that we can offer our residents the choice to partake in trips to see a show, or visit a local attraction. Our dedicated Activities Team ensure that regular outings are a priority, and they continuously strive to incorporate new outings in to our resident’s activity schedule. Other areas of our service include Dementia care, Palliative care, Convalescing and Respite and Day care. A full list of outings / activities / services is detailed in our information booklet.

Our aim is to provide, encourage and facilitate our residents to live as full and stimulating a life as possible. We believe that as we age, our minds and bodies thrive on being kept active thus encouraging our residents to participate in active retirement and social engagement is a cornerstone of our care delivery.

Our nursing and care staff are qualified, educated and highly skilled. They are encouraged and assisted to regularly update their knowledge and training so as to deliver person- centred care of the highest standards and quality.

Each wing has various dining and sitting room options which ensure that at any one time the atmosphere in all areas remains secluded and comfortable for all users. Our catering department ensures that the home baking and traditional yet wholesome and mouth-watering fare nourishes our residents. All food is prepared and cooked on site, and as such, our catering staff can accommodate any specific diet, taste or fancy.
All bedrooms are equipped with telephones, Satellite Televisions and Wi-Fi, along with infra red nurse call systems for residents with specific safety needs. Equipped with two hair salons, treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor gardens, dining and sitting rooms, relaxation and quiet lounges, amongst many other fine facilities, Ashbury Private Nursing Home is sure to appeal to those who wish to engage and socialise, as it is to those who prefer to while away their time in moments of tranquil relaxation and quiet. We have lifts in both wings which serve all floors and a private car park.


We encourage any prospective residents and their families or friends to visit us and experience the comfortable and homely atmosphere in Ashbury. We invite you to make an appointment with our accommodation and enquiries manager for a viewing and to obtain further information.
With best wishes,
The Team at Ashbury!

Family Values – Our Team!

The Fagan Family have deep roots in the care sector, and since 1989 have been at the helm of nursing home care in south Dublin. They adopted the operating name of ANH Healthcare Ltd in 2014. The ethos of ANH healthcare Ltd is one steeped in family values, and as such, the Fagan Family have a very hands on approach in the management of both Ailesbury & Ashbury Private Nursing Homes.

Robert and Ursula Fagan purchased Ailesbury Private Nursing Home in 1989. They expanded the nursing home over the years to a 46 bedded nursing home, and in 1998 Robert Junior came on board to work within the family business. The Fagan Family acquired Ashbury Private Nursing Home in 2001. Alison, their daughter joined the team in 2002, after completing her nursing studies in the UK, and furthering her education again in Trinity College, Dublin in 2003.

As a team, they refurbished Ashbury Private Nursing Home in 2005, restoring the original house to its former glory, and subsequently in 2012 further refurbished The Grange Wing of Ashbury Private Nursing Home, giving a current capacity between both wings of 99 residents.

Today Robert Jnr holds the role of Registered Provider of both Ailesbury & Ashbury Private Nursing Homes while Alison holds the role of Person in Charge and Director of Nursing. Robert and Alison have been joined in ANH by their respective spouses, Wendy and Adrian and they are further supported by their dedicated management team.

We, the Fagan Family are proud to promote both establishments as being family managed and operated. Our hands on approach leads to developing strong relationships with our residents and their families which enables us to deliver care that is tailored to the individual needs of our residents. This is further enhanced by the dedication and commitment displayed by our qualified and experienced staff.

We firmly believe in and consistently promote and encourage an ethos of openness, honesty and transparency within our homes and we very much welcome feedback from all of our residents, their family members and their friends.

We are always aware of the onerous responsibility we have in caring for our elderly members of society. Our daily aim is to provide an excellent standard of care to our residents and to enable them to live out their lives with us in the comfort and dignity they deserve.

The Fagan Family.

“Thank you. To all the staff at Ashbury, it would be impossible to express the gratitude we feel to all of you for the wonderful care, love and friendship you gave to my father.”
