The buildings followed wilkinsons typical layout. The entrance and admin block which contained a porters room and waiting area, with the guardians board room above. The main accommodation block had the masters quarters in the centre and male and female wings to each side. Then at the rear, a range of single-story utility rooms such as bakehouse and washhouse connecting through to the infirmary via a central spine containing a chapel and dining hall.
This workhouse site later became Coleraine Hospital and most of the workhouse buildings demolished. This is the only part that is left, barely as it was gutted by arsonists not that long ago.
