Hearing Loss Ireland

(Formally Irish Hard of Hearing Association)

Hearing Loss Ireland is an association for people who acquire a hearing loss after developing their verbal communication skills.

We are a small Irish charitable and voluntary organisation who campaign for greater awareness about hearing loss, greater access to services and who generate support for each other.

For almost 40 years, Hearing Loss Ireland (Irish Hard of Hearing Association) has been providing support and advocacy services for Irish people suffering from hearing loss.

Following a recent appraisal of its services, the association has begun a process of upgrading and broadening those services to reflect the many changes in Irish society in more recent times.

As part of these changes, the association has rebranded itself as Hearing Loss Ireland.

New administrative structures and contact opportunities are currently being put in place, both in Dublin and throughout the country and these will become operational during 2015.

Hearing Loss Ireland provides links to a range of supports and services for people with a hearing loss.

We can refer you to a wide selection of classes and courses to assist people adjust to life with a hearing loss provided by our partner organisation DeafHear.ie

These include:


Hearing & Communication Skills courses run in a number of venues Nationwide Assistive Technology service
Hearing care and support programme
Hearing aid cleaning and maintenance service
Lip reading classes

We also publish ‘Hearsay’ - a quarterly magazine dealing with hearing loss issues. Click here...

Hearing Loss Ireland is currently involved in the launch of two new awareness projects addressing hearing loss in older people and preventing hearing loss in young people (Keep The Sound).

The organisation also offers a range of peer support services including coffee mornings, social evenings and events and cinema and theatre visits, walks and outings.
