A picturesque 14th century castle in County Louth has been beautifully restored to house a state-of-the-art addiction treatment facility.
Castle Craig Ireland Ltd, trading as Smarmore Castle Private Clinic, plans to create employment for 48 people at the residential rehabilitation hospital in Ardee, County Louth. The Irish operation, a registered subsidiary of the Scottish-based Castle Craig Hospital Ltd, will act as an addiction treatment facility for UK, EU and Irish clients.
Co-founded by Peter and Dr Margaret Ann McCann, Castle Craig Hospital is one of Europe’s leading rehabilitation clinics, providing inpatient treatment for people with addictive disorders.
The company chose Ardee for their first international treatment facility outside of the UK because of the availability of such a stunning location, skilled labour force and close proximity to the international airports at both Dublin and Belfast.
Peter McCann, a Trinity College Dublin graduate and co-founder of Smarmore Castle and Castle Craig Hospital said: “We are delighted to be combining over 30 years of expertise and our high success rates in the field of addiction with the exceptional facilities here at Smarmore. We are committed to tackling alcoholism and drug addiction and the suffering it brings to families and we are committed to widening the range of treatment options for addictions in Ireland”.
