Brigit’s Hearth offers a holistic childcare model centred in providing young children, from six months to six years, with a home from home experience that meets the specific need of the young child.


We choose the name of Brigit, mother/goddess of the Irish, looking for a source of wisdom and courage and Hearth, as a source of gathering and warmth. We want to offer each family an environment of warmth and wisdom to nurture the heart.

We are at the privileged location of Raheen Woods Estate, an ancient reserve of natural woodland and the home of the oldest (over 1,000 years) listed oak tree in Ireland. The time spent in this ever changing environment will lead the children into a life-lasting relationship with nature.
