One of Ireland’s first mobile home companies is set to celebrate 50 years in business with an open day on Saturday and Sunday.

Wallace Mobile Homes, located just outside New Ross has grown dramatically to become one of Ireland’s most prominent outlets for quality new and used mobile homes.

The business was established by Tony Wallace in the early 1970s at his family home and holiday home park on Duncannon Beach. Their son Philip grew up in the business and became MD in 2009, growing the Duncannon Beach Holiday Park and also establishing a new showroom base mobile Homes at Marshmeadows. Today the showrooms are home to displays of all makes of mobile homes.

The majority of the Wallace mobile homes that are sold are supplied to holiday parks in the south east, however, Wallace Mobile Homes also provide professional advice to individuals requiring a mobile home for private use, and delivering nationwide.

Speaking on the business milestone birthday and how the holiday mobile home business has transformed in that time Philip said: “We are delighted to begin our celebrations for our 50th year in business. The business of the mobile home holiday market has seen so many changes in that time, from predominately supplying mobile homes to our own holiday park in Duncannon to broadening out that supply to the small number of operators in the Southeast in the 1970s and growing that largely in the 1980s as the people of Ireland very much holidayed at home. "The return of those times is actually in the here and now as we have seen a whole new appreciation for having a bolthole at home and multiple generations of families coming together to purchase a luxury mobile home. We are also seeing a growing number of people purchasing residential spec mobile homes for permanent accommodation and this is growing rapidly due to the national housing crisis.”

Due to exponential growth over the last couple of years, Wallace Mobile Homes is planning further expansion by moving into the premises adjacent to their showrooms in the heart of New Ross where they can further present the mobile homes to the best of their potential. Visitors are invited to enjoy a celebratory weekend this weekend from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. where they can view all of the mobile homes on offer and enjoy some birthday party fun.
