About the Sue Ryder Development in Holycross

The development at Holycross beside the famous and historic Holycross Abbey has 36 bungalows together with communal facilities for the people who have made their homes there. These facilities include a dining room, sitting room where you have a great selection of books, state of the art television and a grand piano to while away the time. You can also just relax, chat and catch up on the daily news.

FFull lunch is served each day in the dining room and the centre has its own kitchen and laundry. There is also a magnificent Prayer Room for those special moments.

The care for each and everyone who stays at Holycross is so distinct.

Among the facilities at Holycross are beautifully maintained gardens with seating areas and beautiful walkways, many of our residents maintain their own little garden as each bungalow has its own garden.

When the Foundation at Holycross was in the planning stages the committee endeavored to ensure that when it was completed it would have its own character and be as a special place for those who come to live there.

This is, in fact, exactly what has happened at wonderful Holycross.

Testimonial: Martin Mcloughlin

"My name is Michael Nolan. I am 91 years young."

"I lived four miles from the famous Abbey in Holycross and was a regular visitor there. On one such visit I got a form from the Abbey Gift Shop and sent it off to Ballyroan. My wife had died two years previously and I was feeling very lonely and in need of some care."

"Charlie McDonald came to meet me and agreed to let me come and live here. I had lived in Santa Barbara, California for over twenty years, working in hotels. I enjoy my garden, chatting with the other residents, playing a round of Crazy Golf and looking forward to outings during the Summer and to our house parties two or three times a year."

"Sue Ryder House is a lovely place to live, food and staff wonderful, excellent is the word."
