Recommend a Vet in North Dublin please

At the moment my girlfriend is working with a Vet so anything our dog needs she brings him in to the clinc she works in. But she is taking up a different job offer soon so we won't have the perk of a free Vet anymore so we're in need of recommendations for a good Vet in North Dublin. We're in Malahide so somewhere not miles away from here if possible (not the Vet in Malahide though), thanks.

Yes, Malahide and Baldoyle are run by the same Vet. We are looking for anyone but that Vet please, thanks. Anyone have any experience with Lissenhall Vets in Swords? They seem to be the nearest to us I think.

He also owns one in Artane as well! Billy's a very clever man. He did do a fantastic job on our dog's hip so he's forgiven.

I use Fairview Vets on a regular basis, Ciaran is very good, once you get to know him.

Hear a lot of good things about the vet in Clontarf - Conquer Hill Road I believe. He's meant to be great with dogs.

Dennis Shannon Bull Wall Vet Surgery 24 Conquer Hill Rd Clontarf 8531260

I cant recommend him HIGHLY enough. He is a fantastic vet and ive recommended him to friends and family and they say the same. He is a lovely lovely man and yes +1 for being great with dogs. 10/10

Lissenhall are there years..but theyre hit and miss in my opinion. 7/10

Billy McCartney is good, its his colleagues i wouldnt recommend. 8/10

Anicare Group -have 3 chains i think. Clontarf,blanch and somewhere else. Have heard good reports. 8/10

Fairview-Ciaran comes across as a bit scatty and Mark is lovely. But decent enough vets too. 7/10

Billy is a lovely man but we've had bad experiences in his practice before (not Billy's fault) with my mother's cat so we tend to stay away from his clinics if possible.

Anniehoo thanks for your advice. We're thinking in the lines of emergency Lissenhall would be the closest for us if anything happens to our fella but the Bull Wall one sounds great otherwise, thanks.

I use 'em all the time, no complaints.

And despite having a Pitbull who HATE'S a visit to the vet, the staff couldn't be more helpful, friendly & understanding.

The practice also have a cat rescue (not sure about dogs) where they have a no Put To Sleep policy, no matter how long the cat is in his care.

He also run's an emergancy service, he lives next door to the practice and so far as I can remember there's no extra charge for emergencies, but I might be wrong on this.

Thanks Makikomi. I think we're going to give the Raheny one a go so, it's the nearest of the best ones recommended so would probably suit us the best. Thanks for your help everyone.

Have to agree with previous post, Denis the vet in clontarf, such a nice man, all for the pets not money hungry like some of them. Genuine great vet, brought our dog to him for years...
