We have stayed at this campsite several times. We have stayed in the Secret Garden the last few occasions and it is so peaceful in comparison to the other end of the site where the children have the run of the place (and quite right too). This campsite offers the best of everything to suit everyone's needs. There's a pub... More

We had a two night stay in the Secret Garden part of River Valley Holiday Park. We were pleasantly surprised at how tranquil this park was. We dined in the local pub Mickey Finns which opens for meals and drinks from 6 pm. I would thoroughly recommend this park.

A big site with a large Static section. Plenty of space, tennis courts, par three golf and a walk on a good path that everyone could manage. Very good toilet block and the 'Secret Garden' area was quiet and tranquil.Right in the Vale of Avoca with plenty to see and within a reasonable driving distance. A little off the beaten... More

We stayed in Rivervalley weekend just gone and i was dissappointed. We had stayed here before. We also had a problem with security they seem to bypass rowdy groups and come down the campsite to tell us to be quiet at 11 we were 4 adults out having a quiet chat. They also approached a group across from us who... More

Just returned from this campsite. My husband and I stayed in the Secret Garden- Adult only campite- as we have done many times in the past. This time, there were kids staying in the area that clearly said ADULTS ONLY- NO CHILDREN. The USP for the Secret Garden is that there are no children and therefore results in a peaceful... More

We stayed in the logs for the first time it was great very clean lots of room and nice and warm after camping for 2 days before it was nice to be indoors. Lots of things to do for the kids playground sports activities and lots of room to run around. Would recommend this place for families

We have stayed at river valley caravan park a number of times since 2009. Other times just for weekends but decided to take our 1 week holiday there this year which happened to begin on the Friday of the August bank holiday weekend. Started off great until the security staff went on a power trip & over the course of... More

This place is nothing like the website describes. We chose a "maxi lodge" for 2 adults and 3 children. From what I could tell the only difference between the maxi and micro lodges was the price! This was supposed to be a glamping trip, I did not find anything glamorous about having to walk ages to get to the nearest... More

We have been coming to this site for a number of years primarily because all of our family have been visiting here for a number of years and because of its location 1 hour from Dublin. We want to support Irish businesses. We have seen a dramatic decline in the facilities provided over the years. Its just not acceptable that... More
