    Derry, the site Owner /Manager was lovely, very friendly welcome and gave good local information..

    Generally the site was well kept, facilities (apart from the showers) were good.
    Had a tennis court included as well.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were 3 euro for 7 minutes, should be included in the price and also be with the toilet block and not seperate, the top and bottom of the door was open to the elements so at night the flies and moths came flying in....not very pleaseant...

    The far ladies loos were not very well cleaned or possibly just left dirty by other campers, but none the less left a bit to be desired.. The gents seemed ok...

    The site rules says dogs accepted, but please walk your dog "off site" we had a number of dog walkers from the other side of the site, hard stand tourers, walk there dogs past our folding camper, weeing quite near our pitch, this needs enforcing as not everyone wants dogs mess near there pitch... Not even the dog oweners it seems, as they don't walk then near there own pitches.

From the manager...

Thank you for giving us a high rating for your stay.
The showers are not 3 euros they are 1 euro for 7 minutes and the reason we don't include it in our prices is wild campers try to use our facilities and for that reason we have to control it.
Regarding your issues about the toilets these are cleaned regularly thoughout the day and night in high season and we get very alot of compliments of how well our staff keep the site and its facilities.
Personally i am available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to deal with any queries and we have staff on site all the time and if a dog owner or dog owners were allowing this to occur you should have let me know and we would have looked after it immediately for you.

  • Liked: 

    Onsite facilities including a very useful drying room

    Disliked: 

    None - although if you so desired - a night out in Killarney would mean a taxi fare there and back as buses do not run that late and it's too far to walk.
