Abbot Close Nursing Home is a modern, purpose built residential care facility, which opened in 2006 in the town of Askeaton, Co. Limerick. It is situated on an elevated site with two acres of landscaped gardens featuring two enclosed gardens. The design of the home is conducive to the admission of natural light, which makes for a pleasant, bright environment. The home is registered by HIQA to deliver care to 61 residents. A retirement village, which enables independent living, adjoins the nursing home.

The town of Askeaton is situated just off the N69 on the R518. The name Askeaton comes from Eas Geitini which means the Waterfall of the Geitini, (Keating’s), who were a Celtic tribe that settled in the area in ancient times. It is situated on the river Deel and was a base for the Normans.
