We have expanded and are now operating from our new home at Preston Place, Navan. We are upstairs in the building over Minx clothes shop, next to ‘Pink Accessories’. Preston Place is the walkway that you can see between the red pillars.

If you have been with us before, if you stand outside the church gates (Trimgate Street side) you will see McDonald’s restaurant across the road and we are the walkway to the right: ‘Preston Place’, first door on the right, upstairs.

Parking is available on the main street (Trimgate Street) and behind Dunne’s Stores Grocery after 6 p.m. and on Sundays. During the weekend, park in the football pitch (Navan O’ Mahoney’s) for €2.50 euros per day.

Please note we are delighted to have expanded and therefore moved to Preston Place – outlined in the red border in the picture below.
