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.

this is the best campsite in the area.
Views are stunning from every spot in the site. Facilities are spotless. Shop has everything you need.
Pros: location, very clean facilities, covid rules
Cons: no water temperature valve at the showers, "games room" has only ping pong table with no net and is too small to play comfortably, wash room can be busy, no common room

A fantastic campsite. I've been coming here since I was a child and love it. Stunning location, showers, toilets and wash up areas are spotless and the shop has everything. The cafe, which didn't open this year due to covid, is also very good, particularly for breakfast on a wet morning. It's the highlight of my boys Summer every year even though they're teenagers now!

While we were lucky with the weather I have to say from the moment we arrived everything was so professional and yet friendly. Pitches are superb with some of the best views in Ireland. Showers and toilets spotless and not too many people on site despite the fact they were very busy. Plenty to see and do. So good we are returning in 4 weeks and can’t wait.

In my opinion this is one of the top campsites in Ireland. They’ve really taken Covid seriously but have opened everything and made it feel really safe. Fabulous job! Great views, wonderful pitches and possibly the best camp shop I’ve seen anywhere. There is nothing this shop doesn’t have...hot food, fresh bread, salad bar.....we even got black olives! The toilet block and showers are spotless. Only minor drawback is the kids playground doesn’t have much but with fabulous beaches nearby and a nice kids play park 1.5km away in Caherdaniel it really is not an issue.

Response from Brid Moran, General Manager at Wave Crest Caravan & Camping Park
Responded 3 Aug 2020
Thanks for your lovely review and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have a great team working with us that keep the facilities clean and we work hard to keep our shop fully stocked and the deli is a credit to the hardworking staff. The shop and deli are only open seasonally every year. We are very lucky to have a very modern playground in Caherdaniel thanks to the local community. We are very lucky to live in such a scenic part of the world, with beautiful beaches and walking areas Hope to see again in the future.

Lovely location & site. We had no WiFi access for the 2days/nights we were there, which is not good enough. Please don't advertise a service where you cannot provide coverage on All parts of site. We were in a camper van next to the car park beside the road. The ' private provider' did not respond to my calls or txt either. Especially disappointing for teenager who wanted to play games in the evening.
I recommend the site & location but make sure to confirm WiFi, unfortunately they appear to be at the mercy of an outside private provider!!

We go to a lot of campsites around the country but this by far is the best. A bit of a journey from Dublin but so worth it. The views from the site are spectacular, the site is spotless, the toilets/showers are immaculate & to top it all off there is a shop on site. Do yourself a favor and just book

This site is one we visit year after year, Bríd & John have a fantastic site beautifully situated on the ring of Kerry, all of the staff are a credit to the site. The shower & toilet area is constantly cleaned & extremely well maintained. The shop is also fully packed with all you need & Pompeii Pizza also has a truck on site. All of the nearby beaches are stunning. We did not want to leave yet again after a wonderful stay. We have a tent & our pitch was just by the stony beach, ideal for a quick dip in the beautiful weather we had. We also had our bikes & there are many places nearby to explore. We will most definitely be back next year. You should be very proud of your site & staff.

Me, my wife and 3 children (16, 12 & 9) had the best caravan holiday in Wavecrest. The scenery is amazing and the site itself is so well run. It’s kept absolutely spotless by the lovely staff throughout. There’s a shop on the site which supplies freshly baked bread and a great deli counter which also offers take away meals. The swimming areas on the site are really nice stoney beaches and good diving spots too, great for snorkelling. This year, there’s a Pompeii wood fired pizza set up at the entrance to the site. This is the best campsite we have ever stayed at.

Nice little site. The views are quite variable. Some pitched have a great view, some are easlily blocked if a big Motorhome pitched next door. If you can get the ones down near the water it’s probably best chance of a good view. I didn’t use the showers, €1 for a 4.5 minute shower seemed cheeky given the price of a pitch, but it appears to be normal in Ireland to charge additional for a shower. But €1 for 4.5mins is the most expensive we have come across. Good shop on site, easy walk down the road to the cove. Great location on the ring of Kerry. I would definitely go back

We enjoyed two nights at Wave Crest in our Camper, a beautifully appointed site with specific pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes. All have a stunning view of the rugged Ring of Kerry coastline. Toilet/Shower/Kitchen facilities are first class and spotlessly clean. On arrival John providrd us with a map, information and suggestions for things to do. The little shop is handy for your basics, and a little more, and the Pompeii Pizza Wagon (seasonal) at the gateway was great for dinner on one of our two nights. Within walking distance of Carrolls Cove (beautiful sandy) beach and food bar, and a longer but manageable walk to The Blind Piper in Caherdaniel.
We stayed at a mixture of campsites and did some wild camping over the two weeks of our holiday, and travelled through Clare, Kerry and Cork. Wave Crest was our favourite and represented good value in a price comparison with the others.

Would I need to book for camping?
Answer from Wavecrest2017
Caherdaniel, Ireland2 contributions
We take people as they arrive and don't take pre bookings. You need your own tent caravan or motorhome to stay with us. Check out time is 12 daily. Last weeks in July and First weeks in August busiest time so advised to arrive early and weekends busiest time. We are open all year with shop and restaurant open during high season only. Hope you find this information helpful.
