St. Gabriel’s Foundation was founded in 1961. It is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity and is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors.
St. Gabriel’s provides services to children with disabilities and their families through two Children’s Disability Network Teams (Treehouse and South City), Hydrotherapy, Orthotics and a purpose-built state of the art Children’s Respite House in Mungret.
Both hydrotherapy and orthotics are community based services available to the public. They are essential services that support people’s health and well-being and have a positive impact on people’s overall quality of life.
A newly developed regional children’s respite service providing overnight and short-term respite breaks for children with physical disabilities and complex medical needs was recently opened in a specially designed purpose built 6-bedroom facility at Mungret.
St. Gabriel’s Special School is situated on the Dooradoyle campus and provides education for children age 4-18 years.
Our Mission is to support children and young adults with disabilities to reach their potential to live their best life
