Our story

About the clinic

Harbour Clinic has been providing the highest standards in physio services to the public for 15 years and has been operating from Patrick Street in Dun Laoghaire for over 10 years.

While there have been many changes in physio treatments over the years the ethos in Harbour Clinic has remained the same; ‘to empower you to regain control of your body, enabling you to live a happier, healthier, pain-free life’.

Our aim is to get you back doing the things you love to do, with thoughtless, fearless movement, and totally pain-free.
