Brampton Care Home – A Luxury Facility in the West of Ireland

The Project:


Brampton Care Ltd is a company established to run Brampton Care Home (“BCH”), an upmarket, modern care home situated off Main Street in the heart of Oranmore, County Galway, in the former Galway Oyster Hotel premises.

Opened on 26th November 2018 BCH currently has capacity for 46 residents, already with 65% occupancy as of February 2019. BCH is one of the most modern and spacious nursing home facilities in the West of Ireland.

It is intended to grow the facility to cater for 140 residents, in managed phases, to reduce the operational and financial risk. When completed it will be the largest private nursing home facility in the region.

The EIIS funds raised in the 2019 private placing will be used to fund the development and construction of Phase Two comprising of 31 bedrooms on the third floor, including 13 premium suites with views over Galway Bay and Oranmore Castle. This phase will be completed in 2019.

A further Phase 3 will be financed through a separate private placing in 2020.
