Aoife’s Clown Doctors are professional actors, trained to work in the hospital setting. They do the most amazing work visiting and entertaining vulnerable and sick children on the wards at Crumlin and Temple Street Hospitals. This is not only beneficial for the children but also the stressed and anxious parents who get to see their child laughing.

About Us

Aoife's Clown Doctors Ireland became a registered charity in February 2019 and Aoife's Family are thrilled that the legacy of their bright bubbly little girl lives on through the smiles and laughter of other children.
