Ireland is a newcomer to the medical tourism sector, where 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. There are also clinics in Galway, Cork, Tralee, Sandyford, and Kilkenny.
