Lir Business Services & Training Centre

I just want to say what an absolute pleasure it is for us to book training rooms with yourself and the staff at the Iontas Centre.

I’m training at different venues for over 22 years now and while standards have improved greatly over these years with dedicated training centres and facilities being offered, I must say that my repeat bookings at the Iontas Centre, Castleblayney is completely out of choice now when considering training venues in County Monaghan.

The staff are very customer focussed and friendly.  There is always a smile, a greeting and recognition if they have met you before.  The training rooms are roomy, well laid out to the trainer’s specification and no distractions while running the training event.  I have never walked in the front door or downstairs to be met by an empty reception/customer service area either.  You can immediately see what the Iontas Centre provides and is about when you walk into the spacious reception area – the art pieces displayed, leaflets, notices etc.

The option of the canteen/restaurant is a great benefit as course participants can choose their lunch, buy a takeaway tea/coffee etc.

I have recommended the Iontas Centre to other trainers I have met and the many trainers I have trained at the Iontas Centre.  I know other Trainer’s immediate response is to go to Monaghan Town as that was always my immediate response until I first booked into the Iontas Centre, but distance-wise, there has been no problem.

By the way, one of the course Participants I spoke to on the telephone for Train the Trainer FETAC Level 6 was Aneta Sasin, who told me about the Iontas Centre in Castleblayney when I was running a course in Monaghan town and since then, I’ve never looked back.

See you on our next course.

Gerry McAlinden Croatian County Partnerships Study Tour

Our visit to the Iontas centre was one of the highpoints in a stimulating and intense study tour during the week. On behalf of our Croatian County Partnership delegates, I want to say how much we appreciated your welcome and sharing the exerience of Iontas.  The centre itself is iconic and shows just what can be done when local people get together with a sense of belief and "can-do" - who are not going to sit passively by and wait for favour but who can get out there and make it happen. A great example and inspiration to others.  Thank you and please pass on our warm thanks to your Board colleagues - and to Noeline and Teresa.
