Abandoned Magdalene Laundry in Donnybrook, Dublin, Ireland.





Established as ‘St. Mary Magdalen’s Asylum’ in 1837. Laundry buildings sold by the Sisters of Charity in 1992. Traded as ‘Donnybrook Laundry’ until 2006. Two women living in the institution continued to be employed by Donnybrook Laundry after the transfer in 1992*.

A convent still functions adjacent to the modern laundry site. Windows from the original convent buildings can be seen in the narrow road at 36:27 – what may have been an original cut-stone granite gateway is now below a strange apartment block at 37:48
