About Bolger Funeral Directors

Bolger’s Funeral Directors is an Independent family funeral business that is owned and managed by Paul, Esther and Louise Bolger and their family. Paul has worked in the funeral industry since 2002 when he was 16 years of age where he went into the trade through a work placement in transition year in secondary school in Co. Limerick and started his career in one of the busiest Funeral Homes in Limerick city.

He immediately knew this was the career for him. Paul had a keen interest in the embalming side of the business where he had done observation and light work during his part-time position acquiring the skills and experience needed and has been embalming since the age of 18. 

He then moved to Dublin in 2008 where his career progressed further to arranging funerals. Here he gained the knowledge how to meet and sit down with families and learn the requirements of arranging a funeral and contacting the required third parties and ensuring all paperwork was completed in order for the funeral to take place.

Bolger’s Funeral Directors want to facilitate meaningful ways for the family and community to celebrate the memory of their loved one.  We will do this by providing information, options and a flexible service that best fits their needs together with guidance with the highest level of competence, courtesy and compassion.


We will provide a respectful and affordable funeral in a comfortable environment, always striving to exceed the expectations of each family we serve with the same respect and dignity we would have afforded our own family in time of need.

I will be forever grateful to the management and staff in the funeral homes both in Limerick and in Dublin for the training and knowledge passed onto me throughout the years. Go raibh mile maith agat.
