Ireland Medical Tourism Fame

Ireland is a newcomer to the medical tourism sector and foreign patients generally seek cosmetic surgery and dental treatments. However, hospitals and clinics in Ireland offer a variety of services including cardiology, pathology, pulmonary, and physiotherapy. The Joint Commission International has accredited 16 hospitals and clinics in Ireland, which are mostly located in Dublin and Waterford which is 98 miles (158 km) south of Dublin. There are also clinics in Galway (136 miles (219 km) west of Dublin), Cork (160 miles (257 km) southwest of Dublin), Tralee (186 miles (300 km) southwest of Dublin), Sandyford (within city limits of Dublin), and Kilkenny (73 miles (117 km) southwest of Dublin).
