About Allergy Ireland

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 use advanced fibreoptic video endoscopy to examine the nasal passages.
  • Allergy Testing is immediately followed by a long consultation with one of our allergy doctors who will tailor a management plan to your needs.

Allergic Conditions

Allergy Treatments

  • Our Doctors use detailed and effective medical treatment plans.
  • We also have additional treatment options:
    • Rhinolight endonasal phototherapy: Rhinolight uses a specific narrow range of UV light to reverse allergic and non allergic inflammation of the nasal mucosa. It is highly effective in treating the vast majority of cases of Allergic Rhinitis.
    • Allergen Desensitisation Immunotherapy: This is a proven and effective treatment option for house dust mite and pollen allergies. It involves taking a tiny daily dose of the culprit allergen to generate immune tolerance. It is very safe and can even be continued during pregnancy. 

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.
