Not great, one toilet with a missing seat in the back camping site, the caravans on the way down to the site on the back look so dated, probably the ones they offer to the poor soles for free labor, also signs of pesticide's being used to control the weeds around the caravans. An outside sink to wash dishes, the onsite facilities were not great. Better off saving your 30 euro and camping in the wild (with permission from landowner when possible) The pub is not safe to walk too, and is for sale for a long time looking at the signs, the atmosphere is dead and is NOT cosy, Helen's pub / cafe is great which is about 17 mins drive and does good food. The walking distance beach is nice but is a stone beach. We had a look at the cabins and they look awful, dirty and glad we did not book one of them. There was no indoor area to cook, store food on site. Better off going to Cahersiveen in Mannix point, they have live music, indoor dinning area and fridges. As for the price 18 euro for tent with one person, 6 euro for extra person, 3.50 per child over 10 and 2.50 for extra car....we only had one car....no extra car but was charged all the same. maybe they mean 2.50 per car....not extra car as in two cars !! Expensive for what it is. We had the option to go home but did not want to drive anymore on the day, sorry we didn't. As for reading the previous reviews about the owner shouting and scaring parents and young children is inexcusable when they did not like the cabin, we wont be back.…
We were having a great family stay in this campsite and everyone was really enjoying the natural surroundings until a large group of not so pleasant families arrived on the Friday evening. These families seemed to be allowed do whatever they wanted on the campsite until whatever hour they wanted despite the fact that the owner had walked the campsite enforcing the curfew on the previous night. We made multiple attempts to contact the owner but he wouldn’t answer the phone and was no where to be found when we needed him to enforce his curfew this particular evening. These not so pleasant families continued to take over the campsite the following day, so we packed up and headed home as quickly as possible. What amazed me was the number of forensic questions that my wife was asked when completing our booking would have suggested that this campsite would have been safe from an invasion like this - maybe the €€€€ was able to bypass the screening process. From what I could see the vast majority of normal campers also packed up the following morning.…
Great location on the wonderful Beara Peninsula which is so beautiful. The site was quiet so we had our choice of pitch. We parked up by the communal kitchen & eating area which was perfect. There was a fire pit set up in the meadow nearby which we really enjoyed. The facilities were clean & well maintained which is just what we were looking for.
Just spent 3 nights at Beara Camping , 8 of us in 2 cabins. Our group of 2 brothers, 1 nephew , 4 sons and 1 best friend have camped and fished all over Ireland and this is by far the best place we have stayed, we are normally " wild camping". I stayed here last year in a tent but recce'd the cabins and a great move for our group. The owners are great, one of our group that had booked a cabin for sole use, couldn't travel and cancelled at the last minute, the owners were far more concerned about his health and wouldn't hear of taking a cent for the late cancellation. Hot showers, plenty of space . Stay here, its beautiful .
Booked in for 2 nights extended it to 3 and returned for 2 more the following weekend. Location is fabulous, five minute walk from swimming in Kenmare bay, 3 kms for lake swimming with beautiful water from the surrounding hills. Many of the pitches on the site are hidden from each other by trees and shrubbery giving nice privacy. Toilets and showers are clean and great water pressure. We didnt use them but there are a couple of covered buildings with firepits and lots of seating for a crowd in the rain. My abiding memory of the place was it is so peaceful. Thanks to the owners for a lovely welcoming stay and we will be back again.
While the campground is very good, it was also a bit poorly maintained and the showers were tepid. The woman at reception was very rude, and charged us (2 people) as if we were separate guests. We arrived with a small campervan (2 people in a campervan was listed as €24), but because we pitched a small tent next to the van for one if us to sleep in, she charged us an extra €12 for the tent! When I questioned this, she became quite obnoxious. Because we had driven all day to get there, we went ahead and paid, but felt taken advantage of.
This campsite, while nothing exactly wrong with it, just doesn’t maximize itself to its full potential. Lovely location but could be better maintained and cleaner, with better facilities. It was expensive for what you get. And….. The midges!!!!! 😳
This campsite is a little gem if you're into the great outdoors. Facilities are rugged but work great. Loads of hot water for showers in a nice cabin style setting. We were only going to stay 1 night because of our plans but liked it so much we stayed for 2. Only 5 min drive into Kenmare which you have to visit this is a campsite worth a visit.
We camped here for 3 nights and loved it, the location is fantastic- just outside Kenmare so you can stock up on bbq items and food and its just at the tip of the beautiful ring of Beara. The Dutch couple running the place are lovely and they've done a pretty good job of giving you that camping freedom by allowing camp fires and providing electricity close to your tent. The facilities are basic but were all we needed for our 3 nights, will definitely be back!
Visiting the Beara peninsula is an great experience. Basalt rock, high peaks and black soft sand which was soothing and exhilarating to walk upon. The scenery is impressive and unique to the peninsula. Great restaurants and a variety of of meals on every menu and they were very reasonable. The Hungry Hill campsite is set in the centre of great beauty and is about 17 km. from Glengarriff, a great place to visit. The Bonane area stole our hearts, located there is a lovely shop called Molly Gallivan who has lots of bargains and carry a wide variety of Irish garments, Aran sweeaters, hand woven scarfs,,shawls , tweed jackets, jewellery , soft toys and lots more.. There is a farm adjacent to the shop and it is part of the shop and organise farm tours where an employee demonstrats the old style of farming methods. The high light of our visit there was a demonstration of poteen making and tasting. It is a beautiful drink, but has to be taken seriously as it is very potent. . Bonane Heritage Park was very extraordinarily interesting and historic. Both sites are a must for anyone visiting the area. The Hungry Hill campsite is excellent, well laid out very well run. There was plenty hot water and kitchen and bathrooms were immaculate. Altogether a great experience and we will be back next year.…
