My partner and I made the long journey from Dublin to stay at this site, largely because of it's Eco-camping credentials. After driving through the breathtaking Connemara landscape, we arrived at this little corner of paradise, and couldn't believe it when we were able to camp right on the coast, in what the owners described as the 'honeymoon suite'! We received a very warm welcome, and appreciated the fact that the owners deliberately avoid overcrowding the site, so we and the other guests had plenty of room to ourselves. The unique sand dune environment is perfect for camping as there is plenty of natural shelter, and the ground did not become waterlogged or muddy even in the fairly heavy rain we experienced! Add to this free hot showers, free wifi, and the free use of a freezer for you ice blocks, and not to mention the excellent pubs and restaurants in nearby Clifden a 10 minute (€10) taxi ride away, and you have the best of both worlds to enjoy! We cannot wait for our next trip very soon! Thank you so much!
