Welcome to BUMBLEance

The Children’s National Ambulance Service

The world’s first ambulance service specifically designed and tailored for children.

BUMBLEance is the official Children’s National Ambulance Service of Ireland.  We provide safe and comfortable transportation for Ireland’s youngest patients as they travel between their homes and hospitals, hospices, treatment centres, and respite centres nationwide. At BUMBLEance, we know how stressful it is to transport a sick child, BUMBLEance is with families every step of the way, with the comfort and safety of the children as our number one priority.

The BUMBLEance service is the first of its kind in the world.  It has all the amenities of a regular ambulance but it includes the all-important extras to make a sick child’s journey as safe, comfortable and entertaining as possible.  Our aim is to distract, comfort and entertain Ireland’s youngest and most critically ill patients as they travel to and from hospitals and paediatric treatment centres nationwide.

Happy Journeys

BUMBLEance provides children with less stressful journeys in safe and fun vehicles.  The bright and cheerful exterior, which makes a great first impression, is only just the beginning!

Unique Interior 

BUMBLEance has room for two parents/carers to travel with the child and paramedic.  There is also an on-board locker for personal items, and a fridge for medication, food and drinks.

Fun & Games

BUMBLEance has it all – Social Media Streaming, WiFi, Playstation, DVDs, Games, Books, Colouring, Sensory Lighting, Netflix, iPad Air, Beats Headphones

Expert Personnel

We do all we can to ensure a safe and happy journey for sick children.  Our fully-qualified, Garda-vetted Emergency Medical Technicians have specialist training and paediatric skills.
