Trivia and History

Services opened 2010

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 Tibshelf. 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. The parking areas were expanded in December 2020, as this was designated a stacking point as part of Dublin's Brexit preparations.

It replaced an Applegreen forecourt at Balbriggan as the largest service area on the route. Although not a signposted service station, Applegreen built Balbriggan to get an early foot-in on the route. The Balbriggan project was first proposed by an enterprising land owner in 1991.

The service area opened on 8 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.
