Had a great time. Clean, quiet and green camp site. Plenty of space and great cooking facilities (bbq included). The owner is very friendly, generous and welcoming. He can recommend great walks throughout the peninsula and may even drop you off at the start point! Also a great pub just down the road with some of the best live music I've seen in Ireland.
Uncommon structure of the site makes you feel closer to the nature. Different sized pitches for tents, all surrounded by naturally growing trees and bushes that create good sense of privacy. Pitches would fit 3-4 to probably 10-12 tents. Hot showers, toilets, cooking and washing up facilities will make your stay more comfortable, while Camp Fire huts with tables and benches will allow you to stay dry, socialise no mater the weather. Kids play area is a great add-on. The whole site is clean and looked after and owners are there, friendly and ready to help! Great option to choose your stay in either Cabin of Mobile Home or your own Camper van with the same feel of privacy, with the only exception of some noise coming from the road beside. Hoping to come back again to stay and…
Very nice owners. Very well maintained. Covered shelter with stove and fireplace. Warm water. Free choice of places and quiet. Close to the coast and not exposed. Huts to rent also available for not too much.
Myself and my partner are touring Cork/Kerry by campervan and pulled up to this campsite this evening. We checked in and had a wonderful tour by one of the owners who was very enthusiastic and welcoming. The showers were hot and toilet facilities clean and airy. A short drive to Kenmare where we stocked up in Aldi before returning to a lovely charcoal barbecue in the outdoor lounge which was fully supplied with barbecue, hob, sink, benches and light. We could park up wherever we liked for the night and so we chose near the tent ground where the owner told us that deer can often be seen. A rustic alternative for people who like to camp but with creature comforts. Feels like we are abroad but still at home in Ireland. I'd recommend to others :-)
site was ok ... Bathrooms cleanish if somewhat open to the elements but always loads of hot water. Would need more than one loo in main block if busy .. It most definitely was not when we visited and still had to queue! Main complaint would be a website that promises much particularly a cafe ... And when mentioned on arrival was clearly not. Ok it's Sept but website needs to say that. Owner's style somewhat enigmatic ... And I will say no more !
Drove here after being at a campsite the night before in Cork, we never stay in one for more than a night. When we arrived the woman was quite rude to us when we were enquiring about the cabins and laughed in our face with some questions that we asked. After being shown a cabin (for nearly €50) which smelled like mould and with less in it then most hostels I have stayed in we went back and opted to camp instead. We had 3 one man tents which meant we each had to pay €15 each plus 2.50 for the car which for camping is ridiculously expensive, would have been cheaper to bring one massive tent and take up their whole camping area than 3 one man tents. Also on their websites it states you can get breakfast,lunch and dinner in their cafe but there is no such thing and after driving…
Read the other reviews and thought that expectations may be too high.....but hey, it's a campground. And a nice one! The toilets and shower are lit after dark and there is hot water. We stayed in a cabin and was glad to have linen service since we'd travelled from the States. Not elegant but everything works and it was clean. Our kids would have had a blast in the loft bed.
I would not recommend this place to anyone! We are by far not a picky couple when it come to where we lie our heads and night but the cabins here are an absolute joke and you most certainly get what you pay for. When I booked this payment was expected upfront weeks before we arrived which I thought was odd and unnecessary until we arrived. We were greeted by a European lady who was very pleasant and shown the facilities, we went into our 'cabin' which is a shed. It was cold, there was one light in the whole place which didn't light the 'bedroom' part of the shed and nothing in there worked! It was damp and the smelled like damp, there was mould on the Windows and it looked like no one had used it or cleaned it for months. I went down to the bathrooms to see if they were any…
The grounds were very well kept, and it's clear that a lot of attention has been given to different aspects of the campground. We stayed in tents, and were the only ones there. We really only just put up our tents, slept and left the following morning (as per schedule) so we don't have any experience of the other facilities. It seems a little expensive, €13.50 per tent, for what it is - putting a tent up on grass. There were a lot of flies, bugs and midges in the evening and morning, but hey, it's camping. It would be nice if the showers and toilets were inside. The owners seemed nice. The cafe wasn't open, I believe.
It's the third time that we stayed on this camping, and still we find the rest and hospitality from Bert and Klaske on their beautiful camping. The location is fantastic for driving or walking on Beara or Iveragh. Beautiful scenery very close to their campingsite. Warm people, friendly people and a beautiful countryside. Great showers. Thanks again for this wonderful time on your camping. Eppo and Maria
