We are a normal GP practice, looking after public and private patients.

We are 2 doctors, myself and Dr Sinead Beirne, and a nurse (my Mrs Caitriona O’Sullivan, who is practice nurse, midwife, breastfeeding support etc). We share 3 reception staff with the other GP practice.

We provide the full range of GP services, from cradle to grave, including maternity care, cervical screening, childhood and travel vaccination, contraception, health screening, ECG, lung function testing, chronic illness care, blood tests, repeat prescriptions and so on, but we also have some specialized services that are not commonly found in most practices:

  • Minor surgery procedures, from ingrown toenails and cysts to moles and skin cancers, wart freezing etc. We take referrals from all over Dublin and carry out approx. 700 procedures annually
  • We provide ultrasound scanning, including general abdominal scanning, assessment of prostate, aorta, gallstones, uterus, and pregnancy scanning.
  • As a result, we have an extensive maternity practice, participate in shared antenatal care with the hospital, offer midwife care and provide comprehensive breastfeeding support for new parents.
  • We combine ultrasound and surgical skills to find and remove contraceptive implants that get lost in people’s arms
  • We have substantial expertise in diabetes care.

Class Reviews

“I have been enjoying the drawing classes with Poilin... it has really taught me a lot ... from basics of type of materials and how to use them to lots of diverse subject matter to draw ..., such as still life’s, portraits, buildings, perspectives and lots more. It has been good fun too learning along with others during this lockdown ... it is nice to be able to chat to others whilst learning to draw ... I think Poilin has really helped us all to improve and is always encouraging us in a relaxed and easy manner. A very enjoyable drawing class for anyone wanting to start drawing or to improve their skills. Thanks for all the great classes!”

I've been going to in-studio acrylic painting classes for a number of courses and now. due to COVID restrictions and attended two courses of drawing classes. And I will continue, they are a great platform to explore different drawing media and subjects. Subjects I would most likely not have chosen if I was making art on my own as they can be challenging. The interactive Zoom platform allows for asking questions and to show each other what we managed to accomplish. Poilin is drawing the same subject during the class which helps to figure out techniques or pitfalls. Everyone gets a link to download the recording of the class to dip back in or if you missed one class, you can catch up. The tone of the classes is relaxed, friendly, and encouraging. Highly recommended!
