Mooragh Park – food, drink and plenty of fresh air for all the family
Mooragh Park, just off Ramsey beach has been the centre of outdoor activities and family days out for years and is the perfect space for a leisurely walk around the picturesque boating lake and an al fresco coffee.
Alongside the outdoor areas, there is also a range of hospitality businesses including the well-known Costa Coffee and local pizza restaurant, Conrods Pizzeria. The pizzeria is locally owned by TT racer and Ramsey local Conor Cummins. Conor originally started business as a barista and branched out by opening the pizzeria in Mooragh Park’s Boathouse and is open Monday – Sunday 4 till 9.
As well as having a range of activities and areas to relax, Mooragh Park Promenade is a registered Dark Skies Site, one of twenty-six British Isles Dark sky discovery sites. If you’re looking to stretch your legs a little further, it’s only a short walk back to Ramsey town centre.
