The Sunshine Fund has run its holiday centre for children, Sunshine House, for over 75 years. Boys and girls aged between 7 and 11 are nominated for the holiday programme by the network of SVP Conferences spread across the Greater Dublin area and stretching from Wicklow Town to Navan to Dundalk.

"The job is simple. Give a good holiday, make as much fun as possible, and bring a lot of summer happiness to the boys and girls lucky enough to visit"  President of the Sunshine Fund

Special holiday packages are also organised for children from outside this area. The holiday centre is purpose built and equipped to host over 1,300 children annually in a season of approximately 16 week-long (Saturday to Saturday) holidays.
