The development at Holy Cross beside the famous and historic Holy Cross Abbey has 40 bungalows together with facilities for the people who have made their homes there. There facilities include a dining room, sitting room where you have a great selection of books and a grand piano to while away the time. You can also relax, just chat a little or watch television.

Full lunch is served each day in the dining room and the complex 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.

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.

holycross.martinmcloughlin"The things I love most about Sue Ryder House are the heat and comfort, having my laundry and house looked after and getting my lunch every day."

"I was the first resident to come to live in Sue Ryder House, Holycross in 1996. I lived with my sister for a number of years and then looked after a small cottage for a neighbour until it was sold. I had no home of my own and when I retired from the County Council I was looking for a place to live and through local contacts I was lucky enough to get a house here. I worked all my life for the local County Council and local farmers."
"The things I love most about Sue Ryder House are the heat and comfort, having my laundry and house looked after and getting my lunch every day."

"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."
