The system in this country is awful, expect to wait years for treatment for painful chronic conditions and days waiting in extremely overcrowded and filthy A&E during emergencies. Healthcare is not even close to the standard one would expect from a modern EU nation.

Healthcare is terrible in this country, wait weeks for basic GP appointment costing you minimum €50 each time. After that the wait time for basic scans and diagnostics is a few months to a year. Treatments and surgeries can take up to a few years to receive.

Avoid moving to this country if you have any health issues.

The best way to get healthcare is to drive across the border to Northern Ireland and go to any hospital there. Scheduled and non-emergency care, like non-immediate operations, giving birth, dental care, dermatology, physiotherapy, etc, are all much cheaper (if not free) up north, and often better quality of care and staff that aren't overworked.

The standards of health care in Ireland is LOWER than In a third world country.
No exaggeration.

GP visits are useful only to get a sick leave for office if you have a flu. Private sector works somewhat OK, depending on your issue. If you have any severe health problems, I'd avoid this country.

The health care in Ireland is good as long as you have insurance.
Jack Kiernan on Feb 06, 2017:
The public healthcare system in Ireland has been incompetently managed for decades. Management are inept and incapable of implementing procedures and processes that enhance patient care. The system is one of the most costly, per capita, and non patient centric in the OECD. Staff, in order to cover their incompetence, will deliberately feed false data into their reporting systems, and will often either through incompetence or maliciously, fail to provide data that will in anyway show the system in a negative light. In truth, many patients either suffer for many years due to non treatment and in many cases die early due to the ineptitude of the system. Weak, and emasculated Management, powerful Unions and weak and manipulated politicians deserve the odium and repugnance of the people.

Health system is virtually non-existent in Ireland.
Countless visit to GP just to get a lousy referal (each visit costing 50 euro and providing no real value to diagnostic). Lost referal letters, no responsability from health staff, no access to diagnostic test results, long waiting lists (in Ireland emergency means 1+ years waiting),no transparency, no communication. They actually wait for you to die, so they can make a little room on their waiting list.
You can get treated faster (and much cheaper) if you take a flight to any other country in the world and get private treatment
