McGarry House

McGarry House in Limerick (formerly known as Bridgeland House) was opened in 2002 and became the country’s first low-threshold, direct access emergency facility. It has subsequently reduced the incidence of rough sleeping in the city. Completely refurbished in 2012, McGarry House now provides temporary supported accommodation for 30 men and women who find themselves homeless in Limerick City.

McGarry House also provides long term supported accommodation for 40 residents in one, two and three bed apartments. This facility provides individuals with a degree of independent living, while offering supports and life-skills programmes where required.

McGarry House also provides a Cold Weather Service that ensures no one is refused entry to the service during particularly cold spells, even if all beds are occupied.
