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, kitchen and guest lounge

Did you know that John Wayne film The Quiet Man was filmed in the small Irish village of Cong, in the Connemara countryside? If you didn'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 in the Joyce Country & Western Lakes Geopark 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 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

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

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

    Well organised site in a lovely location walking distance from town

    Dated toilet and shower facilities. Showers work by inserting a 1 euro coin for this you get 6 minutes - there are no controls to turn on or off or to change temperature - was a bit cold

  • Liked: 

    Well laid out pitches and kept very clean and tidy.
    Water and waste bins readily available all around the park.
    TV and Lounge available.
    Kitchen open for campers to use to cook their own food with washing up facilities inside plus separate wash up in the block.
    Campsite owner made himself visible and asked about our experience of the campsite and he was also involved with The Quiet Man tour as a guide and was very informative.
    Access into Cong was within easy reach (about 1 mile away) and footpaths all the way.

    Disliked: 

    No dog tie up point outside Reception, which when I pointed this out to the owner was added to his to do list.

    The surrounding area - nice village & interesting boat trip at the beautiful Ashford Castle

    Disliked: 

    The site - it’s a hostel with a cramped campsite added on. Insufficient showers & toilets especially when a group of a few dozen school students are in the hostel. The experience worsened by an unfriendly owner.

    Lovely stay at Cong Camping Caravan & Glamping Park. Staff very friendly. Bathrooms spotless and kitchen facilities excellent. Lovely dinning area for campers! Walking distance to Cong village and once on the main road paths all the way. We were at the back of the pitch and the wi fi connection was excellent (brilliant when you have teenagers). Would highly recommend for a short stay.

    Disliked: 

    Clean hand towels in bathroom every day but maybe site should see about paper towels or hand dryer. - not a complaint just an observation
