Dunluce Healthcare has unveiled plans for ‘The Peninsula’, a state-of-the-art £10m nursing home facility in Newtownards.

This latest development by the Bangor-based firm will provide a range of nursing, residential, respite, and convalescent care needs to 80 residents, creating 110 permanent roles – including 16 nursing positions.

Ryan Smith, Chief Executive of Dunluce Healthcare said:

“We are so pleased that works have commenced to develop our brand-new care home facility in Newtownards.

“Residents and their families are at the heart of everything we do, and providing the highest standard of care to our residents is of paramount importance to us, meaning The Peninsula has been designed with both care and comfort in mind.

“Featuring 80 modern, stylish rooms as well as spacious communal areas and beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces, The Peninsula will offer residents a truly luxurious living experience, designed to hotel standards and unlike any other currently available in Northern Ireland.”

The first residents are scheduled to move into the Peninsula at the end of 2023.

In addition to this latest development, Dunluce Healthcare currently operates residential and nursing care facilities at Oakmont Lodge (Bangor), Hillcrest Care Home (Omagh) and Hillside Residential (Omagh).

Ryan continued:

“The Peninsula not only represents the next step in our plans for continued growth and development, but also creates vital employment opportunities to those living in Newtownards and surrounding areas.

“We plan to recruit over 100 permanent staff members and were pleased to recently appoint Dr Kevin Moore to the position of Director of Nursing. Kevin brings over 40 years of experience to his position, along with a genuine commitment to delivering top quality care.

“At Dunluce Healthcare, we offer a career with real opportunity for development and training. We provide financial support while staff learn, to help them be the best they can be, and actively encourage ongoing growth and progress.

“We look forward to the completion of The Peninsula and to welcoming both new residents and staff members to our new care home facility.”
