Dunmanway Workhouse

After the creation of the Irish Free State in 1922, the workhouse fever hospital was redesignated as a District Hospital, with a scheme to use the workhouse entrance block as a cottage hospital. In 1927, the workhouse buildings were described as being in a bad state of repair, with no proper water supply, water closets, or bathing accommodation. The former workhouse site is now the home of St Anthony's Hospital. Only the entrance block and the derelict chapel/dining-hall survive from the original buildings.
