About Hiscox

Hiscox in Ireland

Hiscox is a specialist insurer, underwriting a particular range of personal and commercial risks.

Our products are designed to address the specific insurance needs of particular customers, and are based on a depth of expertise.

By specialising in particular areas of insurance and being careful about who we insure, we can offer better protection and service for our customers.

We have combined this approach with knowledge of the local market in Ireland to provide professional indemnity products tailored to the needs of local customers.

Our focus has enabled us to grow over the last 100 years from a small operation at Lloyd's into a thriving international insurance group with operations in Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany, Guernsey and The Netherlands, as well as the UK.

About Us

Hiscox operates in Ireland through both its Dublin and Glasgow offices for its core products.
