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.

    Site was a bit noisy - people coming and going until the early hours on two of our three nights, so not great for getting kids to sleep! The road is busy too, and noisy if you're pitched anywhere nearby.

Local attractions

Cong, glorious Cong... see the sights of this pretty village before getting into the Connemara countryside around Cong Camping Caravan and Glamping Park. As well as Ashford Castle and Cong Abbey, you can also mosey around also find the Quiet Man Cottage Museum (of course) with replica sets from the film; guided tours of the film locations are available daily.

Fishing is available nearby (also of course): the area surrounding Cong is an anglers' haven with waterways between Loughs Mask and Corrib. You could also set off on days of cruises, horse riding and pony trekking, falconry, bike hire and golf; ghost tours are to hand too if you feel up for it: ask the Cong Caravan team or in the village for details.

Caves, castles, stone circles and cairns are within easy driving distance and both Galway and Westport are close for urban days out. Travelling further afield, Cong is 55 minutes' drive from the Wild Atlantic Way signature discovery point at Killary Harbour.
