Main phone: 056 778 5000 followed by 6 for the operator. Call this number and they will direct your call to the clinic or ward you need.

Hospital car parks are usually very busy or full. Arrive early as you often have to wait for a space.

The public car park is at the rear of the hospital, and the car park entrance/exit has a one way system. All traffic, with the exception of emergencies, must use Entrance 1 (the entrance closest to the Car Park).

The daily fee is €4. The first 30 minutes parking is free. If you are leaving and returning during the same day, pay the initial €4 and then proceed to the Security Office located inside the main entrance where a ‘multi-pass’ will be given. A barrier system is in operation – take a ticket on entering the car park.

Payment: Coins and card accepted

There are external clampers in operation in St. Luke’s General Hospital and cars parked in non-parking areas or who have not paid may be clamped.

Disabled/Blue badge parking
There are free designated disabled parking spaces – a disabled parking permit must be displayed.

Finding the ward
The Paediatric Inpatient Ward has its own external entrance, accessible from the rear of the hospital. There is no need to walk through the main hospital corridors or other adult wards to access the children’s ward.
