Friends can holiday together in comfortable and relaxing surroundings safe in the knowledge that all care and individual requirements are covered by experienced and friendly staff.
Speaking at the 20th anniversary celebration, CEO of Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA), Rosemary Keogh explained:
Often when a person with a disability, their friends or family, looks to organise a holiday, concerns over access, supports and other requirements, big and small, can make it seem impossible. Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) understands this, which is why facilitating and supporting cherished time away is such an important part of our culture. For IWA, supporting or arranging a holiday is much more than a service. We are delighted to celebrate with our regular visitors and guests today, all who have made many special memories at Cuisle.
