Since we open our doors on 2004 more than 3,300 children and Families were served by RMHC Ireland and more need our help. We want to support more children throughout their recovery, give more Families a comfortable place to stay during a difficult time and offer our care and support while their child struggles through a serious and or long term illness.

Ronald McDonald House Charities and the families who stay in our House need you! There are loads of ways for you to get involved with us and help keep families close to their children while they are in hospital.

Raise Money For RMHC

It costs €55 a night to accommodate a family in our House and we are incredibly thankful to all those who raise money for us. In 2017 your donations helped to accommodate more than 306 families. We desperately need to build a House and plans are underway to build a new 53 bedroom Ronald McDonald House beside The New Children’s Hospital in 2022 so we can help even more families, we can only do this with your help.

Choosing to help in a variety of ways

There are several ways — both big and small — where you can make a big difference in the lives of our families at Ronald McDonald House Charities® Ireland. From holding a Wish List drive to collecting change, every simple gesture helps make our ‘home away from home’ more comfortable for our families. All donations can be delivered to: The Ronald McDonald House Charity, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin 12.

Wish List
Keeping our House stocked with basic home necessities requires a lot of donated food items and supplies. We can always utilize non-perishable food, household goods such as laundry detergent and fabric softener sheets, cleaning products and office supplies. All donated items must be new for the safety of our guest families and volunteers.

To view the full list, please download our Wish List.

Donation Box Giving
