Cong Camping Caravan and Glamping Park: Settling in

General

  • Peaceful park in the Connemara countryside, 1.6km from Cong
  • On the only public road to Lough Corrib, a kilometre's stroll away
  • Mini cinema, barbecue area, playground, shop, kitchen and guest lounge

Did you know that John Wayne film The Quiet Man was filmed in the small Irish village of Cong among the Connemara countryside? If you don't, you do now – and if you've never seen the film, you will here, as it's shown every night in town in the mini cinema belonging to Cong Camping Caravan and Glamping Park.

Cong is fairly famed in other ways for such a small village: it's the setting of Cong Abbey, where Ireland's last High King spent his final years, and of Ashford Castle, the medieval fortification updated in Victorian times by the Guinness family and used along with the village in that film of John Wayne. (And Oscar Wilde spent his childhood in Cong too.)

If you now want to stay in Cong with some immediacy, make for Cong Camping Caravan and Glamping Park a kilometre and a half from the village. Set on the borders of counties Mayo and Galway and between Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, it's the nearest camping and caravan park to Ashford Castle and is on the only public road to Lough Corrib (the lough is a kilometre away). Get ready for strolls and hikes too: around 2,000 acres of woodland surrounds the village for forest walks and walks along the lake shore and riverbanks.

Site facilities include a kitchen and a barbecue area available for guests, a sitting room, that mini cinema, a playground, a small shop, free wifi and a freezer in which to stash any catches landed at the surrounding rivers. Local information and maps are available on site as well as discount vouchers for local cafés and restaurants; there's also a campers' kitchen and a laundry facility.

Please note

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

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

  • Liked: 

    The amenities were good bathrooms, toilets, kitchen, bbq, benches and parking. The castle is only 20 minute walk down the road. No wind to be found when I was there but the layout would very likely detour it as it is hedged in.
