It offers accommodation for up to 21 guests; 10 single bedrooms, 5 shared bedrooms and 1 emergency bedroom. Also provided are 2 common-rooms and laundry facilities.

Legion of Mary seeks to address spiritual, temporal and support needs of guests within the tradition of apostolic social action. Permeating all the work is a determination to implement Gospel values and to be a friend to those in care.
