You walk all the way in (and it is a way in) just to realise you have to turn round and walk out the same way. I suppose if you forgot something or were iffy about buying you can get it on the way out!!!!

Great selection of shops and ample parking in this edge of town place but any place that charges customers to use the loo has to be avoided. This place is human unfriendly. It's especially disabled human unfriendly. The disabled toilets are locked with a sign advising those in need of a natural unavoidable bodily function to go find someone on the staff to unlock them, how degrading, how terribly uncaring and how utterly unacceptable in 21st century modern Ireland.

If I were wheelchair-bound its the last thing that I'd want to be doing, it has to be discriminatory too. Centre management should be shown the exit sign and chased back to the capitalist pond from whence they escaped for re-engineering. I'm sure the rental income from the traders including Tesco, Burger King and Costa among others can cover people peeing. The Costa Coffee place here is comfortable with good coffee too, but the free wifi is limited to an unacceptable 30 minutes in a day, which is also pretty lousy. I have a costa card, when invited to put in my Costa card number to extend the miserable amount of free time the message back was Irish Costa card holders only - so UK and European citizens need not apply then? Ya honestly couldn't make it up, its just so mean spirited, small wonder I prefer Starbucks, even Mc Donald's the meanest of all fast food money grabbers don't do this!
