What’s Behind Our Name?


So many people have asked us down through the years how we came up with the name ‘IONA Physiotherapy’. 

Firstly, it’s not a misspelled version of “I own a physiotherapy practice”. Secondly, we do not have any links to the Iona Institute! 

Historical Roots

Many of the streets in the surrounding area of Glasnevin are called after Iona, an island off the coast of Scotland. And so, the name actually stretches way back to monastic Ireland as Iona had links to Saint Mobhí, an abbot of Glasnevin monastery in the 6th Century.

As we are deeply rooted in the community, we thought it appropriate to use the local placename in Glasnevin for our physiotherapy practice. IONA Physiotherapy has been providing private physiotherapy to the surrounding areas of Glasnevin and Drumcondra since 2001. 

All of our physiotherapists have a Masters Qualification meaning that we can provide an expert level of service, so that you get the best possible care. If you’re looking for a physio in Glasnevin, Drumcondra or the surrounding areas of Dublin 9, we would be delighted to help.  Bookings can be made online here, or by phoning the clinic here.
