Corrandulla Nursing Home was opened in March 1990. It was originally built as a Franciscan monastery in the mid 1850’s and then converted in 1989 into Corrandulla Nursing home. An extension was added to the home in 2001 & 2013. On the ground of the home also consists of independent living units and an activity centre.
The Home is situated in six acres of beautiful landscaped grounds with small orchard, in the village of Corrandulla. It is 9.5 miles or 15.3 kilometres from Galway City and 7.5 miles or 12.1 kilometres from Headford town.
