Nothing stopping anyone coming in and driving around the campsite. Didn’t feel secure/safe like on other sites. Should be some sort of barrier system for campers/caravans.
Open to the public to wander around, use facilities which are 2 toilets for each gender and no urinals in males toilets!!!
Showers are also a bit of a joke- no privacy, shower curtain and then out into a communal area to change which again anyone can walk into.
Hubby went to take a shower and couldn’t as the Astro turf pitch had been hired out and the men had taken over the shower room as their dressing room.
I think at €40 per night (touring caravan 2adults,2 children and 2 infants) this is crazy.
Pitches are hilly and not all are suitable to awnings, kerb stones lining the pitches are a nuisance as they are a trip hazard inside awning.
Nice pancake cafe and chipper onsite.
OVERPRICED FOR THESE REASONS AND WE WOULD NOT RECOMMEND OR RETURN.
Stayed overnight in one of the pods with my wife and our two young children after a day out at Dunfanaghy. They look small on the outside but there was plenty of room on the inside for all of us. The kids loved the big play park on site, and we had a delicious breakfast in the cafe the next morning. Omelettes, sausage and bacon pancakes for the grown ups, and mini pancakes and ice cream for the little ones. We enjoyed it so much we booked another night away before we left.
First off it rained a lot and that never makes camping the greatest of experiences. But having said that, it is Donegal, and the owners will know all about weather, or they should. Delux means you get two blown up airbeds and (not surprisingly) damp duvets and pillow cases on arrival in the tent. Perhaps they could consider keeping the duvets wrapped up in a drying room and only issue them on arrival? As we camp as a family I have kit and before leaving home did load in sleeping bags and lights. If I had not we wouldn't have stayed as the bedding was damp and inadequate. Delux does not stretch to an inexpensive battery light so bring your own. I would go again but take my own tent as the site is well located and the shower block is clean and has hot water. Eat out as the kitchen is tiny.
Just for two pod, fabulous one night stay.
Myself and my boyfrined stayed here on a Saturday night and it was perfect. The pod/ room is prettier than the pictures. Warm and cosy with a heater avaiable. Nice, clean and more spacious than had previously thought.
We were able to enjoy the tennis court - renting the court rackets and tennis balls for an hour for 5euro. The facilities around were lovely and scenic. We walked to the local bar for some drinks and dinner which were lovely and hired a chimnea and fuel for 10 euro and sat out on the decking with the fire burning that evening. Staff went over a beyond when we missed the closing hours to get the chimnea at 9:45pm and rang the out of hours mobile a member of staff came at 10pm and provided us with this. We were so grateful and impressed. Great time would definitely recommend. Toilets/ shower facilities were very clean well maintained, cafe was cosy and pancakes were good in the morning
We did a trip along the Wild Atlantic Way staying at different camp sites each night, in a camper van. Two adults and four children. This was the worst camp site that we stayed at from a Motorhome perspective. Devoid of atmosphere.The motorhome bays were near the entrance and did not afford much privacy. The bays were basically a tarmacadamed car park and staying there was like parking in your local supermarket. We couldn't pitch the teenagers tent or eat outside the van as there was only as there was only a little patch of green beside the tarmac. We had just enough room for our little BBQ. There were kids everywhere and no privacy at all. It was also very noisy, however, by 11pm the place was quiet (though this could have been down to the fact it was torrential rain outside). If you are looking for somewhere with an atmospheric feel and the sense that you are on the Wild Atlantic Way, this is not the place for you. There is a beach but its about 10kms away and its just ok, compared to some of the other beaches we had stayed beside along our trip. We had thought, given the name, we would be staying in a camp, on or beside the beach and there would be loads to do. However it is inland and another point; we were eaten alive with midgets because it is more inland as opposed to coastal. There was a good playground for smallies and an astroturf pitch (which cost €5 per person to use) but we didn't find much else to do. Our kids were bored senseless, whereas everywhere else we stayed that had found plenty to do, throw a rugby ball, swim on the beach etc. However, the shower and toilet facilities were good, the staff were nice and the place was clean. It just wasn't for us. We might as well have been camping in a very busy car park with a play ground.
