Trivia and History[edit]

Inside the services.

Services opened 2015

Northern Ireland only has two motorways of any significance, and even they barely count, so it's no surprise that the Northern Ireland Roads Service maintained that there was no need for any services. In 2015 their position changed, and Templepatrick was allowed to open, serving commuters and people leaving the docks.

The design of the services was later copied by an almost-identical Lisburn services.

Applegreen are taking over Welcome Break, with plans to apply the name to more "UK sites". It's not clear whether this means Lisburn will receive Welcome Break branding, and possibly some of their brands.
