Trivia and History
Inside the amenity building.
Lusk is also known as Round Towers services and, during planning, as 'M1 South services'. In 2017, the service station sold fuel for 88.5 cent a litre to celebrate it having sold a winning €88.5m lottery ticket. The discount was stopped by the National Roads Authority as the queues were blocking the M1.
In terms of road layout, the site is designed like many 1990s British services, such as. It could effectively be its own dumbbell interchange. Externally, the design is like newer services, with relatively low land prices affording a very spacious design. 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 replaced an Applegreen garage at Balbriggan as the main service area on the route. Although not a signposted service station, Applegreen built Balbriggan to get an early foot-in on the route.
The services opened on 8 September 2010, under a 25-year contract.
