Trivia and History
The service area was privately developed to try to stop Gorey being developed by Transport Infrastructure Ireland, further down the M11. It opened on 4 June 2014, giving it a five-year monopoly before Gorey finally opened.
It's built in a large cutting on the site of the old Cullenmore Hotel, which was positioned on the old route of the N11. This closed after becoming cut off by the new road in 2002, and the hotel was then burned down in 2011. As the service area is positioned on what was the road to Dublin, the entrance takes in several private driveways.
Parking is provided for 80 cars, 6 HGVs and 3 coaches and the investment was approximately €7m. The main amenity building is not open overnight, but 24 hour toilets are provided along the side of it.
During planning the proposal was referred to as 'Coyne's Cross services'. When Applegreen opened it, they clearly filled it with signs calling it 'Wicklow service area'. However in 2019 Transport Infrastructure Ireland provided new signs at the end of the M11 which refer to services at "Coynes Cross". To confuse matters further, in April 2020 TII then called it 'Cullenmore'; a name that Applegreen themselves sometimes use.
Following the partnership between Applegreen and M&S Food, their range was added to the shop in March 2023; the first at a motorway site in Ireland. A launch event was broadcast on East Coast FM on 11 March.
