Medical Services

From time to time (but hopefully never!), you may require medical attention while abroad in Dublin. Smaller colds and coughs can generally be treated with over the counter medication after consulting with a pharmacist at a local pharmacy. Accidents and emergencies require more immediate attention at a facility. Always know your insurance information and the costs involved in seeking medical treatment abroad. 

You can locate all the local hospitals, clinics, and other services listed below on the FIE local area map

Due to the high cost of attending the Accident & Emergency department, it is recommended that a student only visits A&E in the case of a genuine emergency. In all other cases, the student should first refer to a GP. A student referred to the A&E department by a GP will not incur any charge.
