Coroneagh Park has recently undergone renovations and is now a 78 bed facility nestled in the heart of the quiet seaside town of Penguin. It offers the luxury of wide open spaces, in addition to the peace and tranquillity that comes with living in a serene and relaxing environment. The home is based on an open plan design, with large corridors and glass that open up to a small courtyard. All areas are modernised with a homely feel, from quiet areas to common areas to congregate.
Penguin is renowned for its cafes and pristine surroundings and is only 20 minutes from the cities of Devonport and Burnie.
