General

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!
