Our Story

The Holiday Park is owned and operated by brother and sister – Hugh and Niamh Darcy – with this present generation carrying on the family business which was started by our entrepreneurial parents Ed and Ria Darcy in 1969. Our brothers Riain and Eoin both worked in the business at different times over the years lending their expertise to various aspects of Morriscastle. Ria was the financial wizard and it was her backbone, strength and accounting skills that kept the Park going through difficult times supporting Ed’s determination and belief in Morriscastle bringing the Holiday Park to where it is today. Ed will never retire so we’ll be building and developing the Morriscastle dream for years to come!

Morriscastle Strand Holiday Park was one of the first campsites in Ireland opening originally with the one small camping field in June ’69 and has developed steadily over the years into a larger Holiday Park offering more up-to-date on-site facilities, daily activities, summer camps and fun events for all the family to enjoy throughout the peak summer months and bank holiday weekends in off-peak. Every winter we add something new to the offering at Morriscastle so that we are always improving and adding to the Park.

Morriscastle Strand Holiday Park –

A family business with your family in mind

 

We look forward to sharing the Morriscastle Experience with you!
