The Áras also has a Changing Place Facility…
The new ‘Changing Places’ facilities at Áras an Uachtaráin are the first installed in any building managed by the Office of Public Works.
The toilet and changing facilities – which offer a height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench, a ceiling track hoist and ample space for carers – are part of a programme of work by the Office of Public Works to ensure Áras an Uachtaráin meets the needs and expectations of the people who use them.
