Our history is interesting. We are a member of the O’Meara Group of companies that started in the late 1950s. In 1964 we pioneered camping holidays in Ireland when we opened O’Meara Camping. That grew into one of the most famous firms in the holiday leisure world and was even written about in the literary supplement of the New York Times.
Over the years, we opened Ireland’s first Business Incubator Centre to grow small new businesses. We developed Ossory Business Park, The Storage Centre and The Richmond Business Campus. We have worked with many leading organisations including Arnotts, Body shop, O’Meara Camping, Barclay’s bank, Morgan Grenfell, Leonidas Chocolates, O’Donnell Sweeny solicitors, the Blood Bank, Motorola, Aldi, Morgan Grenfell, the engineering firms for the Port Tunnel and the Luas, Anderson Consultants, ICC bank, The OPW, Barclays Bank, Lifetime Bank of Ireland, Dublin Corporation, and many more.
We are also members of self storage associations around the world.
Elephant Storage Scholarship programme
Charlotte Corcoran worked with us for a year and shares her thoughts with us below.
“I have recently just finished the year-long Elephant Storage scholarship and consider it to be one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The placement gave me a chance to practice new skills in a working environment that I had been learning from my Business Course that same year, such as customer care, business organisation and communications. With the help of all the staff, I passed my course with an overall distinction grade and graduated successfully.
The experience I gained at Elephant Storage and the people I met, both customers and co-workers, helped me continue on to other jobs with confidence and ease. I would like to thank everyone at Elephant Storage for this amazing opportunity!”
Ciaran Croker tells us how working with Elephant helped him go further.
‘My name is Ciaran Croker and I am currently availing of the Elephant Scholarship, while I have been studying Business and Marketing in Crumlin College of Further Education.
The opportunity offered to me by Elephant has given me the ability to put the classroom theory into practice when working with customers in the office environment. I have also learned how a business functions from the ground up whether dealing with customers in the office or out while helping with the removals side of the business.
I have passed my Business course in Crumlin College and the experience that I have gained with Elephant Storage has given me the confidence to continue on with my studies and I have enrolled in a Degree in Business Marketing, in the Institute Technology Tallaght.
Thank you to Elephant Storage for all your support.’
