Seal Rescue Ireland

Welcome to our new page dedicated to the latest news from the superb team in Seal Rescue Ireland, located in Courtown.

We hope to share details of their team, their work and latest news on this page to keep you up to date with their amazing work & ethos!


SRI is responsible for the rescue , rehab and release of orphaned, sick and injured seals nationwide; while engaging the public in solution-based, proactive conservation initiatives.     ”HEALTHY SEAS, HEALTHY SEALS”


What they Do!

Rescue. Rehabilitate. Release.

Orphaned, sick and injured Common and Grey seal pups are rescued from around the whole coast of the Republic of Ireland. We rely on members of the public who come across pups in distress and our amazing team of coast wide Rescue Volunteer Network to bring rescue and transport the pups to our centre for care.


New for summer are the Bookable Experiences from The Seal Rescue Team!  See

You will then be led out to our rehabilitation pools for the chance to feed the seals, watch them dive and compete for fish, and develop the skills they’ll need to flourish in the wild!
