Castleview Celebrate 25 years

Celebrating 25 wonderful years


Castleview Private Nursing Home, Carrickfergus, opened in 1990 with a desire to provide an integrated service to people with a learning disability, a service that was severely lacking in the community at that time. 25 years on and Castleview’s vision of offering opportunities for a full community living experience and enriching the lives of residents has been immeasurably successful.

The McCourt’s, who founded and continue to operate Castleview, invited all those who have been involved in the Castleview ‘family’ to The Loughshore Hotel to celebrate the achievements of providing a happy home for people with a learning disability for the last quarter of a century. All those in attendance enjoyed an immensely enjoyable evening, whilst taking the opportunity to reflect on the achievements of Castleview, and look forward to the next 25 years.
