Trivia and History

Services opened 2010

The services were built as two separate developments. Although the two buildings are the same, the car park arrangement is different.

The building is a standard Applegreen layout, but with an additional toilet block accessible from outside, for use when the main building is closed.

It opened on 29 September 2010 under a 25-year contract. It was part of 'tranche 1', the first three service area contracts to be awarded in Ireland.

Bids to operate the service areas were received by Applegreen, Esso, Top and Welcome Break. Welcome Break's consortium "Service Area Solutions", was shortlisted, but Welcome Break described the traffic levels as "unrealistic". Ironically, Applegreen won the contract (as SuperStop) and are now Welcome Break's parent company.
