Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
It is in the quiet sea-side resort of Terrigal, where the plush Crown Plaza Hotel will be home for the next three weeks and from where Ireland will launch their World Cup bid against Romania in neighbouring Gosford on October 11and against Namibia in Sydney on October 19th.
Ireland's hotel is slap bang on one of the most beautiful sandy beaches of the Central Coast; about 90 minutes drive north of Sydney.
The Crowne Plaza is just over an hour's drive from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, set within the coastal village of Terrigal on the New South Wales Central Coast.
