Trivia and History
Inside the services.
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.
In November 2018 Applegreen purchased a significant stake of Welcome Break. One of the trade-offs of the purchase was that suitable Applegreen sites would be managed, rebranded and refurbished by Welcome Break. It was not clear if the Northern Ireland sites (where no UK mainland motorway operators can currently be found) would be considered 'suitable', but it has since been confirmed that the changeover will happen.
