Belmont House provides short-term care for residents requiring either a period of convalesce or simply a relaxing break.
A period in a hospital can be a particularly traumatic experience. With demands on hospital beds high, a period of convalescing is normally required before returning home. Relaxation and recuperation with full nursing supervision can restore the feeling of well-being and enhance recovery.
We have a minimum stay of two weeks and the fee is €1,750 per week.
Bookings should be made as far in advance as possible as rooms do book up quickly. At the time of booking we do request a booking deposit of €250. This deposit is fully refundable if the booking is cancelled at least three days prior to the date of admission.
All bookings are subject to a telephone assessment with the Clinical Nurse Manager, the purpose of which is to ensure that we can meet your care needs during your stay with us.
Our short-stay accommodation consists of single ensuite bedrooms on our 5th floor, which has its own sitting room and dining facilities.
Our bedrooms are bright and spacious and are all fitted with televisions, direct-dial telephones and have scenic views of either the Dublin Mountains or Dublin Bay. All bedrooms are fitted with a nurse-call system.
Admissions are Monday to Friday only between 12pm and 2pm. We do not take admissions over the weekend or on Bank Holidays. We ask that the room be vacated by 11am on the date of departure.
We ask that you bring any prescriptions (originals) and toiletries with you that you may require during your stay with us. All bedding and towels are provided.
Breakfast is served in the bedroom from 8.30am onwards, and lunch and tea are both served in the dining room. Patients are encouraged to dine in the dining room, where they can be assured of a quality dining experience. Our menu provides good wholesome and nutritional meals, and also features tasty home baking.
We can also cater for special diets, such as low fat, soft diet etc. There are staff on hand during meal times to provide assistance if required.
All meals are prepared by our highly trained chefs in our state-of-the-art catering facilities, all of which are HACCP compliant.

If a resident is leaving the nursing home for a period of time with a visitor, we ask that you let the nurse on duty know, and also sign out at Reception and provide a contact number.
We are registered with VHI as an approved convalescent facility. The fees are paid in full to Belmont House and you must then submit a claim to your health insurance provider.
