Situated on Mountain Road, Aughrim Court takes its name from the Aughrim River which runs along the back of the scheme.
Aughrim Court is a sheltered living scheme which is designed specifically for older people (generally over 60 years but in some schemes applicants over 55 years can be considered). Sheltered living enables tenants to live independently and privately in their own home within a safe and supportive environment.
