General

  • Family park on a Ring of Kerry Hill overlooking beaches
  • Direct access the water for guests to launch their own craft
  • Book a RIB ride around the local islands

What a spectacular spot for camping in Ireland. West Crest Caravan Park is in Co Kerry, set on a Ring of Kerry Hill overlooking beaches, coves and mountains: you might even see an occasional basking shark or dolphin in the water off Derrynane Beach...

As might be evident, this is a watery spot suitable for watery sports, so we applaud the West Crest foresight in having direct access to the water for guests to launch their own craft or watersports kit.

More watery sports in the form of scuba diving and surfing or sailing are within five kilometres, along with hill walking, trips to the Skellig Islands and walks on the beach – Irish weather permitting... Or stay very close to home and book a RIB ride with owner John's brother Des, zipping niftily from Wave Crest around nearby islands, to the Bull Rock and across the bay to the Beara Peninsula.

The first-rate family facilities at Wave Crest include showers and loos, a well-stocked shop and deli, a fully-equipped play area and on-site tourist information.

Great for familes. 17/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The view from campsite was amazing. Facilities were well organized. The shop, information desk and cafe were superb and all staff were friendly and helpful.Definitely recommend the cafe.

    Disliked: 

    The campsite was heaving and very busy. Despite booking a couple of months earlier, we were crammed onto a pitch along the main access road. Head was only a few feet away from the endless cars. Its very popular with large extended families so wouldn't recommend for those expecting a quieter location.

Weather let location down but that's the chance you take. 07/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom malcolm_g562670 Confirmed

  • Electric mixed motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    View. Unusual layout of pitches not in rows. Jetty for using our kayak but weather was awful so wasn't able to utilise which was a pity. Would have been stunning if weather was good.

    Disliked: 

    Old toilet facilities. Cleanliness of mop and colour of water in bucket being used to 'clean' tiled floor. Road on approach has no pedestrian or cycle path and was very dangerous unless using car. Walking was extremely hazardous. Cars winging there way around blind bends and no place to escape. No dog walking areas.

    There are no pitches that are individually served with drainage, water and electricity. Toilets are quite far from pitches. Not a well planned campsite.

Local attractions

Many outdoor activities are available in the area around Wave Crest Caravan Park, like local walks and bike trails, fishing excursions and trips to the Skellig Islands from Bunavalla or from local harbour Derrynane.

Local village Derrynane has Derrynane House, once the home of Daniel O'Connell and now a National Monument, museum and part of a large national park. Iron Age Staigue Fort is about three miles away.

Skellig Chocolate Factory at Ballinskelligs is another tasty treat in the local area, while heritage hunters should take a look at Valentia Lighthouse, built on the site of a seventeenth century fort on Cromwell Point. The fossilised footprint of a dinosaur can be seen from here, which we think is pretty spectacular...
