He is a son of Jackie Healy-Rae and brother of fellow constituency TD Michael Healy-Rae. He has worked in plant hire and owns a pub in Kilgarvan, businesses associated with the Healy-Rae family. Prior to entering national politics, he was a member of Kerry County Council from 2003 to 2016 for the Killarney electoral area. He gained attention for being in favour of drinking and driving, as a way of reducing rural isolation.
Healy-Rae is pro-life, and against same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption, calling it unnatural for a gay couple to adopt a child. On the latter he commented, "What was I very worried about – and still am – is that two men, or two women, could adopt a little baby girl or a little baby boy and these babies would have no say in it."
