South Dublin County Council has reportedly approved plans for a nursing home and independent living complex after previously rejecting a request for permission.

The approval was only given by the council once some stipulations were agreed upon with the developer.

The facility will be on the grounds of St Mary’s Priory in the Tallaght suburb.


The council only agreed to provide permission after St Mary’s Medical agreed to reduce the size of the independent living blocks to two storeys. The initial plans were for four- and five-storey buildings, the Irish Echo reported.

The number of units was also reduced from 60 to 25.

The nursing home facility will include 106 en-suite bedrooms, as well as a pharmacy.

A previous request for permission to build a five-storey nursing home was denied by the council in 2021.
