Camping at Chleire Haven on Cape Clear Island, is a unique, peaceful and adventurous opportunity to leave the mainland (and your worries!) behind. Being Ireland's most southerly Irish-speaking inhabited island, situated some eight miles off the coast of west Cork, makes Cape a pretty special place for your holiday.
Leave the car behind and take the 45-minute ferry trip from Baltimore to this unique island which can easily be walked around on foot. Relax amongst the scenery, while absorbing the tranquil beauty of the island, with its spectacular hills and shimmering harbours. Take in the ever-changing colours of the hillsides, where wild flowers mix with yellows and purples of gorse and heather, turning to the rich autumn gold of bracken.
Chleire Haven campsite has sea views over South Harbour towards the Atlantic ocean. Catch a glimpse of a basking shark, dolphins and whales from your tent!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Take the bus from Cork to Baltimore and from there take the Cape Clear ferry to the island. We will pick you and your bags up from the pier and take you to the campsite. Please include your estimated arrival time in the booking form by using the 'special request' box.
Although you won't be bringing your car onto the island, there is a taxi service if you'd like a tour or to just be taken to the goat farm (which sells ice cream and cheese), Heritage Centre, a working farm or the Maritime Museum. All sites can be reached on foot also.
There are also several monuments on the island, plenty of walks to choose from and lots of beautiful beaches providing great family days out. The island has restaurants, pubs, cafés, a church, craft shops and a lake, so you will never be short of something to do.
