After finding our first choice for camping on Achill Island closed for the season, we were delighted to find Lavelle Golden Strand Caravan & Camping Park still open. A stones throw from Golden Strand, we found reception closed but a "On site" sign up with a phone number. While waiting for Mr Lavelle to arrive we chatted with a very... More

This was my second stay this summer with me little camper. The facilities here are basic but exactly what you need while camping. The showers are free which is pretty much unheard of in an Irish campsite, and the campers kitchen is well equipped. All facilities are well-maintained. The blue-flag beach is just 100 mtrs from the campsite and absolutely... More

If you're looking for sea views it would be good to arrive early. Joe welcomed us, gave us a choice of roomy pitches and pointed out the amenities.... More

My friend and I stayed here for a week in august. We had no car, no bike and were in a small 2 person tent. We really enjoyed ourselves. For getting there a bus stops outside the campsite which made it easy for us. Since we were in a small tent we had nowhere to put our food which was... More
