Properties at both Donegal and Wexford are wheelchair accessible.

The core period of July and August each year is ring-fenced for members with a special needs child.  Outside of this period, consideration will be given by the  Board of Management to applications from Staff Associations, Retired Members Association, Garda Management and Employee Assistance Officers who are aware of members, Garda Widows/spouses, who following a period of hospitalisation would benefit from a one-week holiday break at either of the two locations.
