Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited in August and stayed in a bell tent. The campsite feels part of the natural surroundings and is very tranquil. The key facilities are basic e.g. toilets, but are clean and cover everything I think that you need. There is plenty to do for a short stay in the surrounding area which is very beautiful. We did not try any of the classes on site e.g. yoga. In addition to the bell tents there are chalets on-site which looked really nice and can like the bell tents be booked by anyone directly online at the Purecamping website. One thing that did surprise me when we arrived is that there were tents pitched. The Purecamping website all Summer said that there would be no tent pitches until September. Now that we are approaching September the 'tent pitch' options now show on the online booking table but are all blocked out in red as being 'unavailable'. To pitch a tent therefore you need to contract the owners and based on availability and information you give them you may or may not get a tent pitch. From the 'pitched tent' campers that I saw (who seemed to be having a lot of fun) the Pure 'profile' is caucasian, under 45, hetrosexual, with kids. There is nothing wrong with having a family focused campsite in so far as it goes but it would be even better if it was more inclusive. Hopefully Purecamping will change their approach and let those want to pitch tents to book directly on-line like other campsites do.

I loved my two night stay here. It was better than the reviews.... exceeded my expectations. I made a quick call and was assured space would be made available for a solo pitch in the woods. So from the first contact by phone to Trea to the last goodbye from Kevin it was such a refreshing no nonsense approach to business. Many businesses should watch and learn from them. The place was soooo laid back, friendly and relaxing with a cool vibe. The set up is well thought out...from a fab equipped kitchen, well spaced pitches to spotless solar powered showers etc... Can’t say enough good things about the place...Sauna, pizza, fire pits with fuel, yoga. There is even a Labyrinth!! Looking to chill out? Just go here. It’s perfect. It’s located near enough to the pollock holes and cliff walk in Kilkee and Loop head lighthouse etc... Thank you very much Kevin and Trea.... 🙏🏽.... Throughly enjoyed it. Tina O’ Brien-Wynne

Just back from 4 days at Pure Camping. This is a little piece of heaven on the Loop Head Peninsula. Trea, Kevin and family made my son and I feel so welcome and their hospitality and genuine warmth was palatable. The place is spotless, all your needs are cared for and you still feel like you are partaking in a wilderness experience. We slept in our tent in the woods on the final night and it was the best nights sleep we have had in awhile.Early morning the dawn chorus greeted us and we were awe struck by the varied bird song and their Divine melody! f Totally recharged since our trip. Highly recommended also are the beautiful local benches, were one may have the beach in its entirety themselves, even on a warm day. Planning our next trip back already, thanks Trea, Kevin,& Family for making it special for us. Ciarán & Caomhán

Two families - one in furnished log cabin & we had the furnished Dome tent...loved it all. We were met with very friendly reception attendant (owners daughter) and gave us a super competent introduction to sites, facilities and rules (& all the very friendly pets). We checked in to our homes for a few days and immediately fell in love with it - it is very clean and very cleverly put together accommodation. Bags dropped and Pizza oven booked we head for our swim in nearby Doonaha Beach - fresh but very clean and well serviced with picnic tables & new steps , parking etc. Back to PureCamping for our pizzas...Chef Kevin brought our organic dough balls and gave full instructions on how to roll out, fill & cook our dinner - very relaxed and great with the kids - we now have some budding pizza chefs ourselves now!! All food prepped in the outdoor area and fully stocked kitchen we had a super evening .Food and wine (adults only) over we went for a stroll to the nearby pier/slip in Querrin to make room for our toasted marshmallows... Home again to the site and started the fire-pit with the provided food wood and sat and watched the stars while the kids roasted marshmallows and made many s'mores...a beautiful still night with best views of stars with no light pollution at all...off to bed and all slept in our wonderful furnished units that left you want for nothing - excellent bed with seriously comfy bedding (all provided) - so 'snug' it was the best camping I've ever done in my life...in the morning we had to move on to another venue but it was with a heavy heart - this place has left us all wanting for more and we will be back - thank you Trea, Kevin & Aishling for making our stay the most memorable one of the holidays...well done on providing such a friendly and Eco friendly service to all - please keep up the good work.

Spent 3 nights in Rowan cabin, 2 adults and 3 children. So as to manage expectations, we had anticipated something akin to a garden shed and were delighted to be completely mistaken. Our 2 room cabin with toilet, picnic bench and private fire pit was beautifully finished and very very cosy during wet weather. With the exception of some more hooks on the wall, there was nothing missing from the experience. The highlight was the view from the sofa bed..... long grasses, immensely peaceful. Trea and Kevin are warm, welcoming and the atmosphere on site is lovely, both for adults and kids. We availed of the pizza oven, ordered in stew from a local restaurant and even had a surprise visit from a crepe van. All in all a delightful camping experience.

A few months ago I stayed with some family in one of the Alder & Rowan cabins at this site, it was a lovely change from hotels and offered much more freedom as there was a trail into the woods right outside our door and a small secluded beach a few minutes away. The open kitchen proved to be a great opportunity to talk to some of the foreign tourists and the nights spent by the fire pit were magical. The gentle dogs who roamed the camp were always friendly and a joy to see. I loved staying here and will definitely be coming back in the future.

We stayed in one of the lodges for a week in September with our two small boys aged 2, and 4. The lodges were clean and warm as there's a wood burning stove and the beds are really comfortable, there was our own area outside, with picnic table and fire bowl. We travelled from the UK on car ferry to Dublin and the drive only took 3 hours from Dublin, we arrived later than planned but this was not a problem, Kevin waited up for us and helped us get the stove burning and showed us around. The communal kitchen was great, but I imagine it can get busy if the campsite is at full capacity, so worth planning what time to have your meals if that's the case, the showers we're nice and warm and facilities all clean. There's a big field and some woods and the kids loved running around and playing with other children, there's a few friendly dogs and some chickens running around also. In the woods there are pathways and clearings for tents and and the ruins of a pre-historic fort. The Loop head peninsula is a treasure, I travelled to Clare many times as a child, but never came here, lots of small beaches, hidden coves, quaint coastal villages, lighthouses, castles etc. We had days out a short drive northwards to Lahinch and the cliffs of Moher, the Burren National Park and south to Bunratty Castle. Galway is bit far and so was Cork to the South, but so much to see within an hours drive. Kevin and Trea were wonderful hosts and could not do enough to help and ensure your stay was as enjoyable as possible. I would highly recommend this wonderful campsite, especially if you have small children who like to run around and get some fresh air in safe surroundings. Sitting around the campfire watching the sun go down, then, the dark skies offer amazing star gazing in the evenings. Would love to go back some day.

We stayed here on a road trip around the south west of Ireland. Planned on staying one night but ended up staying longer as we felt really good there, super relaxed and loved the vibe. It was my first time experiencing solar powered showers and they were amazing... perfect hot shower in the morning! We also used the sauna and loved it... highly recommend organising your stay here to include a sauna! Would love t go back and spend even longer! Ohhh! Finally... we spent the late evening star gazing in the maze... and even saw the Milky Way! ✨✨✨

Being an occasional camper, I've done the rough and a change to the glamping for a treat was exactly that! What a treat to wake up up the view of the sea from a double bed in a spacious bell tent. This site has just what you need to get the camping experience without the hard work. A little BBQ outside the tent to cook on or just enjoy the fire was lovely into the dusk of the evening. Tents are situated to give privacy and enough space. The campers kitchen is set up well to refrigerate the food we brought, cook on the hob and had all the plates and utensils needed. The outdoor pizza oven is great too! Showers, toilets etc were good, but the woods walk and yoga/meditation were the cherry on top. Nearby there's lots to do too in a short distance. Trea & Kevin are great hosts and the experience, was just lovely, will be back again!
