About Fanagans

Member of Excellence Ireland
Member of The Irish Association of Funeral Directors

 For 200 years Fanagans have been trusted by the people of Dublin to care for their funeral needs. Since our business was formed in 1819 we have maintained a family-run tradition. Today the fifth and sixth generation of the Fanagans family work in the business, namely Alan, David A., Jody, Robert and David J. Fanagan.

Together with our experienced and professional staff, we ensure that bereaved families receive a compassionate, dignified and caring service for their loved ones.

The quality of the service we provide and the commitment of our staff to maintaining such high standards has been recognised by numerous nominations for Excellence at Ireland's "National Quality & Excellence Awards", and we are past winners of the Supreme All-Ireland Award.

As one of the founding members of the Irish Association of Funeral Directors (IAFD), we have been at the forefront of promoting excellence and expertise in our profession. We continue to make valuable contributions to our sector through, for example, the regular reviewing of the Industry Codes of Practice.

Fanagan Funeral Directors incorporates Carnegies, Kirwans and Nichols Funeral Directors. Collectively, we offer eleven funeral homes and offices located throughout Dublin City and County, all managed to the highest professional standards. Our service is available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, with every call answered personally, irrespective of the time. A person-to-person telephone conversation is guaranteed at all times.

We will assist families with their funeral arrangements regardless of financial restrictions and funerals can always be arranged to meet a specific budget. We can advise on how to reduce costs while always being mindful that quality and dignity are essential pre-requisites.

At Fanagans we strive to offer the highest standards of service and by paying attention to every detail no matter how small.

While you come to terms with your loss, Fanagans plans, organises and handles all the funeral arrangements on your behalf.

Our Promise to You

We are there for you at all times, day or night, to provide excellence in Funeral Care when you and your family need it most.

Our Commitment to the Community

As well as offering the highest standards of service and compassion, an important role for us is to give something back to the communities in which we are located. We regularly provide sponsorship and financial support to local charities, community associations and events.

Every month Fanagans staff contribute to a charity fund and the Company matches their financial contribution. This fund donates thousands of euro to a variety of deserving causes every year.

Fanagans has a special relationship with the Irish Hospice Foundation, a national charity dedicated to all matters relating to dying, death and bereavement in Ireland. The Irish Hospice Foundation's vision is that no one should face death or bereavement without the care and support they need and their mission is to achieve dignity, comfort and choice for all people facing the end of life. On an annual basis Fanagans are pleased to sponsor two very important aspects of work carried out by the Hospice Foundation.

1.  Annual bereavement Seminar

2.  Over 20 Bereavement Training Workshops for professionals who work with all aspects of bereavement on a regular basis.
