Dublin Samaritans was the first branch to be set up in the Republic of Ireland and we are one of the largest branches within the Samaritans organisation. Established in 1970, we can be found in the centre of Dublin, opposite the Abbey Theatre where we take calls from people who need us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As well as calling on the phone, people can visit the branch between 10am and 10pm every day .
