Myself and my boyfriend finished our wild Atlantic way trip here. We stayed for 2 nights, overall facilities were immaculate (need coins for the showers) ,very crammed camping location . Small area given to tent pichups. If staying, have a decent sized tent that you can cook/sit in as we brought a 2 person pop up tent and weather was too windy and rainy to sit outside . Not the best parking facilities, more suitable for camper vans/mobile homes . Quite pricy for only a few person tent , given strict rules on gazeboes/shelters .

This is a lovely campsite - kept immaculately clean and not too crowded with a family-friendly vibe. It is superbly located to see the stunning scenery around Valentia Island and this part of the Ring of Kerry. It is a short walk down the hill to Knightstown, and a short walk or cycle down to the beach along a gorgeous Montbretia-lined lane. We stayed for three nights but should have stayed longer to be able to see more of the island and surrounding area. A trip to Skellig Michael is a must. The Cable & Co food trucks in Knightstown made great burgers and pizzas. We will have to stay longer next time!

I have been visiting the beautiful island of Valentia in Kerry for the last 14 summers. This year's visit was one with a difference, we decided to camp for a week using our relatively new tailgate tent. Emma was our contact in the Valentia Island Caravan and Camping site. Because of our tailgate tent, we had very specific requirements including an electrical hookup. Emma was very patient and helpful, she even sent me pictures of the spot she thought work for us. (Which it did.) When we arrived on the site, we felt very welcome and we were brought to our pitch. The pitch had well maintained grass on soft, well drained ground which meant it was easy to put in the tent pegs. The campsite is a medium size, with mostly static mobile homes, but there are some well spaced hard pitches for touring caravans and campervans. There is also a good size green area for tents at the front of the site. The toilets, showers and campers kitchen were always really clean, even in wet, mucky weather. My only negative remark (outside the control of the campsite management) is that cars drive very fast along the road to the campsite in spite of the 50km speed limit so be very careful when exiting the site. Overall it is a quiet, reasonably sheltered, well run family caravan and campsite within walking distance from the pretty little village of Knightstown. Walsh's shop is a very well stocked little grocery shop in the middle of Knightstown and offer a good range of foodstuffs suitable for caravan and camp cooking. I enjoyed our stay there and I would definitely reccomend it.
