We are a normal GP practice, looking after public and private patients.

We are 2 doctors, myself and Dr Sinead Beirne, and a nurse (my Mrs Caitriona O’Sullivan, who is practice nurse, midwife, breastfeeding support etc). We share 3 reception staff with the other GP practice.

We provide the full range of GP services, from cradle to grave, including maternity care, cervical screening, childhood and travel vaccination, contraception, health screening, ECG, lung function testing, chronic illness care, blood tests, repeat prescriptions and so on, but we also have some specialized services that are not commonly found in most practices:

  • Minor surgery procedures, from ingrown toenails and cysts to moles and skin cancers, wart freezing etc. We take referrals from all over Dublin and carry out approx. 700 procedures annually
  • We provide ultrasound scanning, including general abdominal scanning, assessment of prostate, aorta, gallstones, uterus, and pregnancy scanning.
  • As a result, we have an extensive maternity practice, participate in shared antenatal care with the hospital, offer midwife care and provide comprehensive breastfeeding support for new parents.
  • We combine ultrasound and surgical skills to find and remove contraceptive implants that get lost in people’s arms
  • We have substantial expertise in diabetes care.

Property Taxes Explained

Property Taxes Explained



Property Taxes Explained simply. This is a tax paid by every household every year. It can be paid in monthly installments or at the conclusion of each year. We would advise that you contact the Revenue with regard to setting up an online LPT account. They will post a PIN out to you, which, along with your PPS number and Property ID will allow you to access your online account. Because of the nature of property tax we recommend you do this sooner rather than later.

Importantly, it is zero balance owing in each of the respective years that will need to be shown prior closing.

If your property is selling for an amount greater than the pricing band you have been paying in fear not, as there are a number of situations where “general clearance” now applies, meaning you do not have to get clearance from Revenue.

These situations are as follows:

  1. If the property sells for less than €300,000.00 general clearance will apply.
  2. Allowable valuation margin: This is currently 50% of the upper limit of the band declared in Dublin, and 25% in all other counties. For example if you declared your Dublin property value between €250,001 and €300,000 general clearance will apply up to a sale price of €450,000 (i.e. 50% of €300,000).
  3. Expenditure on enhancements to the property: If a property sells for more than the allowable valuation, general clearance will apply if verified expenditure on enhancements can be shown. The purchase price minus the verified expenditure must give you a figure within the allowable valuation margin discussed at B).
  4. In the event that none of A-C apply there is another form of general clearance if you can show that one comparable property was sold in the declared band within the 9 months preceding May 2013 (this is when you would have declared your property’s value for LPT purposes). Properties are deemed to be comparable if they are in the same area, are the same type of property, are similar in size and are in a similar state of condition/repair.
  1. NPPR (“Non Principal Private Residence”)

This was essentially a Landlord’s Tax. Should the property in question have been any property other that your principal private residence (where you live usually), then you were liable to pay this tax. It should be noted that this tax is no longer in being however on closing you will need to show that this was paid for each of the relevant years, 2009 – 2013.


This was another annual charge that is now abolished and was payable by owners of residential property. This charge was abolished in 2013 and a €200 penalty added to the abovementioned LPT should and arrears be owed.
