Allergy Ireland Slievemore Clinic
Allergy Ireland: Specialist Allergy Testing, Consultation and Treatment Clinic

Allergy services at Slievemore Clinic began as a part-time clinic in 1984. Almost 40 years later, Allergy Ireland has evolved into the most highly specialised and resourced allergy clinic in Ireland. 

Our doctors use advanced fibreoptic video endoscopy and comprehensive allergy testing in combination with effective and proven treatment plans. We also have advanced anti-allergy treatment options such as Rhinolight and Immunotherapy.

We specialise in treating hay fever and other nose and sinus allergies, food allergy, urticaria, contact dermatitis, eczema and asthma.

Allergy Ireland's medical staff are frequently invited to speak at medical conferences and regularly contribute to journals and medical publications such as the Irish Medical Times and the Medical Independent. We are regularly interviewed by the radio, television and print media

Allergy Testing

  • Skin Prick Allergy Testing: This is the gold standard in clinical allergy testing. We test for a wide range of inhalant allergens and food allergens.
  • Patch testing: This is used specifically to find the trigger in a condition called Contact Dermatitis.
  • Our doctors used advanced fibreoptic video endoscopy to examine the nose and sinuses.
  • Allergy Testing is immediately followed by a long consultation with one of our allergy doctors who will create a management plan.

Allergy Conditions

Allergy Treatments

  • Our Doctors use detailed, effective and proven treatment plans.
  • We also have additional treatment options such as Rhinolight and Immunotherapy
    • Rhinolight endonasal phototherapy: Rhinolight uses a specific narrow range of UV light to reverse the allergic inflammation of the nasal mucosa. It is highly effective in treating the vast majority of cases of Allergic Rhinitis.
    • Allergen Desensitisation Immunotherapy can be used to generate immune tolerance against dust mite and pollen allergies. It involves taking a tiny oral dose of allergen daily for 3 years.

Patient Information 

  • You do not need a referral to make an appointment.
  • Anti-histamine medications including tablets, eye drops and nose sprays must be ceased at least 5 days prior to allergy testing.
  • We can accommodate two patients from the same family on the same day but this must be booked in advance so that additional time is allocated.
  • Blood tests are sometimes used in conjunction with skin prick allergy testing when life threatening food allergy is identified.
