Our History and Values

Merrion Fertility Clinic was established in 1998 by staff of the National Maternity Hospital, Dublin 2 under the leadership of Dr. Mary Wingfield to provide Ovulation Induction and Intrauterine Insemination services.  Over 17 years later Dr Wingfield and her team remain committed to the founding mission of the Clinic by continuing to lead the way in research and quality in the area of assisted reproduction and by advocating for people in Ireland who have medical conditions that affect their fertility.  Here are just some of our highlights:

  • Initially the Clinic provided Ovulation Induction and Intrauterine Insemination services.  IVF was commenced in 2004 and our first IVF baby was born in 2005.
  • In 2008 the Clinic was authorised as a Tissue Establishment and was granted full regulation by the Health Products Regulatory Authority.  This underpins a comprehensive quality control system implemented to ensure the integrity of all the services we offer.
  • In 2008 the Clinic commissioned the construction of a new state of the art clinic to include clean room laboratory facilities. This facility opened in March 2010 and has enabled us to continue to increase the range and scope of the services we can offer.
  • In May 2016 the Clinic received it’s licence for Oocyte Vitrification or egg freezing.

Today the Clinic provides a full range of assisted reproductive services including IVF and ICSI.  We have successfully completed over 3,000 cycles maintaining high standards of care and above average success rates.
