Speaking about the acquisition, Noel Boyle, CareChoice Group Chief Executive, said:
“This will be the third acquisition by CareChoice since the company was acquired by French based investment fund Infravia last year, a deal which was designed to help fund CareChoice’s ambitious growth plans.
The CareChoice core focus is to become the leading provider of nursing home care in Ireland, by growing our national footprint in carefully selected areas, and by deploying leading technology innovations that adds value to our residents experience and enhances their engagement with their families and the wider community.
The addition of “The Marlay” is an excellent fit to our growing portfolio and further demonstrates our focus to provide the highest quality of nursing home care in Ireland.
Ireland needs a professionally managed and growing nursing home sector to meet the care needs of its ageing population and CareChoice has taken a leadership position by responding to this need through a professionally managed and growing portfolio of high-quality nursing homes.
Our vision is to ensure that each of our residents enjoys a warm and caring home from home, where they are listened to, respected and supported in living a full life connected to family, friends and the wider community”.
This latest acquisition will bring the total number of CareChoice nursing homes to nine, across Dublin, Cork, Meath and Waterford – providing a total of 833 long-term residential care beds.
We look forward to working with “The Marlay” to further expand its facilities and services, to meet the needs of the local growing elderly population.”

Declan Lernihan, Chairman of The Marlay, said : “We are delighted that The Marlay is now part of the CareChoice group of nursing homes. CareChoice is a progressive nursing home operator which is setting an extremely high standard of care in Ireland. We look forward to providing our residents with the same excellent care and service as part of the wider CareChoice Group”.
