Make-A-Wish® Ireland has one simple aim - We grant the wishes of children aged between 3 and 17 years living with a life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. A wish granted is true magic for the child providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Since its inception in 1992 Make-A-Wish in Ireland has granted wishes for over 1300 brave children, realising their greatest wish and allowing them experience the hope, strength and joy each wish provides.

In all possible cases Make-A-Wish grants the child’s first wish ensuring that all immediate family members participate. In doing so we provide long-lasting and happy memories for those relatives, whatever the future may hold. As an increasingly well respected and popular children’s charity, we are fully committed to providing the maximum level of care and enjoyment for our children and their families. We achieve this through a combination of professionalism, attention to detail and sensitivity; nothing is too much trouble for our children; they are, after all, the only reason we exist! To continue with our work and succeed in our aims, we rely overwhelmingly on the kindness of people like you. With your generosity we can make a real difference to a child’s life.
