Our Hospice Units
Mayo Hospice / Palliative Care Centre
The Mayo Hospice is located in Knockaphunta, Castlebar. (Postcode F23 YY40)
The Hospice is located within a small cul-de-sac development, containing St. Anthony's School and HSE residential centres and the Rural training centre and is within walking distance of the Mayo General Hospital, Lough Lannagh public park and the town centre.
The Mayo facility is a 14-bed inpatient unit with daycare facilities and boasts a café, shop and reflection room.
We have used the natural landscape of trees, water, planted courtyards and gardens to organise and define the three core areas within the centre:
- Reception & Public Areas: entered through a tree-lined south facing forecourt
- Day Care Centre is organized around a central private garden, providing patients with privacy.
- The In-patient Palliative Care Centre is also organized between an external courtyard
providing a sheltered amenity and a therapeutic garden to the south.
