Trivia and History
A filling station is available in both directions, but the eastbound side is not signposted so technically not official. This is probably because, when travelling west, it is the last services before the M7: signs before the services used to advise traffic that no online facilities are available on the motorways.
Both forecourts were built on a single field when the N7 bypassed Kill. They were known as Beaufort services, sometimes Beaufort Road, and were branded Esso. The eastbound side had just four pumps and a small Esso-branded shop, while the south-westbound side had an On the Run Cafe and Costa Express machine.
In 2017 the westbound forecourt was sold to Maxol, who introduced a number of restaurants and one of Ireland's only forecourts with the option to pay at the pump. They erected a large sign calling it simply 'N7 Services', occasionally referring to it as Beaufort Road.
The eastbound forecourt remained with Topaz until the Circle K re-brand. In 2018 Circle K opened a much larger forecourt behind the existing one, with their usual shopping and catering facilities, many more pumps, and safer slip roads. They started referring to it as 'Kill North', which made more sense given that it's on the north-eastbound carriageway. The old forecourt was then demolished.
