                    Careers at Áras Chois Fharraige 


If you are committed to the highest standards in elderly care and want to progress your career in a modern community-based care home, where staff are valued, then contact Áras Chois Fharraige. Irish-speaking applicants are particularly welcome.

We offer our staff a great work environment and the opportunity for ongoing professional development. Many of our health care assistants undertake the nursing qualification at NUIG after beginning their career at Áras Chois Fharraige. 

We are always interested in receiving applications from nurses and health care assistants, who are committed to the highest standards in elderly care.

Each year the Áras, and Údarás na Gaeltachta, fund nursing bursaries for local student nurses.

Since 2010 the Gradam Áras Chois Fharraige  has given €20,000 to local student nurses.

The closing date for the Gradam is September 30th each year.
