Ten acres of native Irish woodland edged by an ancient ring fort and pure camping in serious eco style – on the south side of the famed Loop Head Peninsula, named in 2013 as ‘the best place to holiday in Ireland’ and a designated European Destination of Excellence (EDEN)? Sounds heavenly to us.
Run by owners Trea, Kevin, their two children, three dogs, three cats, three hens, cockerel and donkeys Betty and Jack, Purecamping in the small village of Querrin, Co Clare, will have you on cloud nine with its sincerely thought out vibe and facilities: it’s designed to let guests experience ‘camping as it should be’ and has a seriously sustainable living vibe (there’s even an electric car charger on site).
All overlooks the Shannon Estuary (where you may see bottlenose dolphins a-frolicking) and is near the Querrin shore to flock to for spying winter waders, herons, ducks and geese, and Querrin Creek for a bit of action at rowing, sailing fishing and kayaking. Pure bliss.
Among the many splendoured things on site are the ways it’s set up for collective activities: the 12m geodesic communal dome, sauna and shared campfire spots are pretty flawless; and guests are also fervent fans of the outdoor clay oven to bake goodies under the stars. Wood is available on site for a nominal fee if you haven't brought your own.
Purecamping has a choice of loo and shower facilities, both designed for their green credentials: the main shower and loo block has hot water via solar panels and a wood stove, with water harvested from rain and the site’s own well, and a second block has compost loos and solar showers.
