Travel Health


Dr. McGonagle is a member of the Travel Medicine Society of Ireland. A travel consultation with Dr. McGonagle will discuss in detail all aspects of your trip from the risks associated with local food / water ingestion, to the vaccines required and the need for malaria tablets. Our specialised travel medicine software is continuously being updated, so you can be assured of accurate information regarding local conditions at your destination that may impact your trip. If you’re planning to travel, it’s important to arrange your travel vaccination appointment early. 


Whether you’re looking for a particular travel vaccine or you would like to consult us about an upcoming trip, we can advise you on the appropriate vaccinations, administer the vaccines and also advise which medications might be useful to bring as a precaution.

Please allow time before your trip for this consultation, as you may need to return for vaccination if we need to order the specific vaccines. Complete the Travel Consultation Form once you have made your appointment.


Common vaccines required for travel throughout Asia, Africa and America include Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio. Many vaccines must be given at least two weeks before travel. Some must be given even sooner, so please contact us as soon as possible.
