General

  • Based on an organic farm with direct access to the River Shannon
  • Three kilometres from the tourist town of Carrick-on-Shannon
  • Modern amenities including two washrooms and free hot showers

Comfy Camping opened in July 2015 in a scenic riverside location, three kilometres from the busy tourist town of Carrick-on-Shannon.

The site is based on an organic farm and has direct access to the River Shannon and the adjacent mudflat fishing stands, where there's a decked riverside walk to stroll.

Among the facilities are a large campers' kitchen area with seating inside and outside, barbecue facilities and spectacular views of the River Shannon. There's also a playground for younger kids and a recreational room for older ones.

As the site is set by the river and in the Roscommon countryside, plenty of land- and water-based activities are easily accessed for all ages available for a fee payable on site: guests can hire boats and paddleboards, have paddleboard lessons, go Chinese dragon boating, or hire bikes.

Amenities include a washing-up area, two washrooms and free hot showers. There's no launderette on site, but a drying room is available for guests to use after a day out and about on the river.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including row boat hire, stand-up paddleboard lessons and hire, Chinese dragonboating, and bicycle hire are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

    Had a brilliant weekend. The owners Clare and Jim went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Their son even helped to put up our tent in the rain. Had 2 girls with us aged 7 and 8, their 1st time camping, they had a ball. The highlight of our weekend was the trip on the dragon boat. Would highly recommend this campsite.

    Nothing the campsite was completely shut down and no one was around! We had to find a different place last minute to stay even though we had prepaid through pitch up!!! Do not stay here!!!

    Disliked: 

    Everything!!! It's a disgrace! We would like a full refund!!!

From the manager...

We have tried to contact these campers by email and have made numerous attempts by phone to try and establish what happened without success and we are still anxious to do this. It appears that they must have got lost as the campsite was open and we had parties staying on both the Friday and Saturday nights and the campsite was staffed throughout that day. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss the matter with these campers and will reply to any contact made as a priority.
