About Smarmore Castle

Smarmore Castle Private Clinic is a 22 bed addiction treatment facility located in Couty Louth, Ireland. Smarmore Castle was founded by the directors of Castle Craig Hospital in Scotland, which was established in 1988 by Peter and Dr Margaret McCann, as a residential rehabilitation hospital treating people suffering from alcohol and drug addictions.

Treatment at Smarmore

Our treatment programme is focused primarily on alcohol and drug addiction, prescription medications abuse and gambling addiction. Our medical treatment is under the direction of a leading Consultant Psychiatrist, and the overall service is under the direction of an experienced Clinical Psychologist. Our medical and clinical staff have experience in treating many of the co-occurring disorders and issues that need to be addressed as part of an alcoholic’s or chemical dependent’s treatment plan, such as depression, stress, bereavement, anxiety and burn-out.


Smarmore Castle is a fine period house steeped in history and charm, incorporating the Tower, which dates back to 1320. It is located in Ardee, a town in the Irish Borders, about 45 minutes north of Dublin International Airport and 1.5 hours south of Belfast International Airport. Our 15 acres of parkland and woods is a relaxed and tranquil environment conducive to healing and recovery. Directions to Smarmore.

High-Quality Standards

We aim to incorporate the high standards of our founding clinic into the service provided at Smarmore Castle Private Clinic. We trust that Smarmore will soon gain a similar reputation in Ireland, and all around Europe for high quality medical and therapeutic treatment, extensive services and dedicated family support.
