Ballylusk Cottage is a large dormer bungalow situated on an acre of land  and is in beautiful country surroundings between the villages of Ashford and Glenealy in Co Wicklow.

Ballylusk Cottage provides traditional respite services to children aged between 6 and 18 years who have a diagnosis of a moderate to profound intellectual disability.

We provide a relaxed and family home environment which focuses on each child as an individual.

Respite services are an important part of an integrated approach to supporting families to care for their loved ones.

The day to day management of Ballylusk Cottage is managed by Bernie O’Halloran, Children’s Service Manager who is supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of social care staff.
