Our Location


Hear what our clients say about us.

“Aidan was my dentist for about 10 years I think. Most of the time I was living in Cork, but for the last year I travelled from Dublin to be treated by him. I can’t recommend the practice highly enough. I referred friends here and they were equally delighted.

They do their best to slot you in for treatment when it suits-they’re open weekdays and also approximately every second Saturday 9-12. The surgery is bright and shiny and always gleaming. It’s good from the moment you go in the door. Sandra, the nurse, is lovely and extremely friendly. The waiting room has Sky News and a selection of up to date magazines and a copy of the Examiner. The surgery itself also has a TV if you need distracting-but you won’t.

Not only is Aidan an excellent dentist who doesn’t hurt you; he’s also a great conversationalist who is endlessly entertaining. The time flies by! He also doesn’t give out. He just tells you what needs to be done. I can’t imagine anyone retaining a fear of dentists after attending him. His wife is also in the practice and is lovely. I would go to either of them. And do so happily.”

“On holiday in Ireland, went to Dr. Monahan for an emergency visit, and I can not say enough good things. The place was absolutely great. Dr. Monahan knew what he was doing and got everything I needed fixed immediately so I could enjoy the rest of my holiday. Thank you so much!”
