St Bricin's Military Hospital (Irish: Ospidéal Míleata Naomh Bricin) is a military hospital in Dublin, Ireland, serving members of the Irish Defence Forces and under the administration of the Army's Medical Corps.

It was founded as the King George V Hospital in 1909, and was transferred to the authorities of the new Irish Free State in 1922. The hospital was named after Saint Bricín of Tomregan, because of his skill as a surgeon in 7th century Ireland.
