Sally and David and their pooches are the best hosts you can find and the campsite is perfect for families with pets. It was such a pleasure to wake up and look out at the stunning view while brewing our coffee and meeting new friends every morning. All members of the family were relaxed, happy and enjoying themselves here. We'll... More

We had a fabulous stay at Chleire Haven, Four great days staying in one of the yurts which had everything you needed for a great getaway. Proper beds, a woodburner that heated the yurt in minutes and a breathtaking view literally outside your beautifully decorated door. You had your own generous decking area with a picnic table for your meals... More

We have recently returned from our 3 night visit to Cape Clear; our 5th visit in as many years - with our large group of 6 families. Sally met us from the ferry and we had 3 fantastic days and nights on the island. The location of the yurts is amazing and sitting on our decking looking out over the... More

I was so looking forward to this break away with four of my friends. Once we arrived on the island, there was no one there to meet us as planned. One of the local islanders rang the owner of the campsite to come collect our luggage. Once our luggage was collected we explored some of the island which is beautiful... More

Hi Eimear. Many thanks for your review and your feedback. My apologies for being a little late in coming to the pier to collect your bags, I was already there when I received the phone call. May I point out, I did NOT say you had to pay for the showers, they were never mentioned on the tour, nor did... More

I adored this campsite. Situated overlooking a harbour, the view from every tent is spectacular. The woman who runs the site is friendly and welcoming, and provides a pick-up service for the campsite when you get off the island ferry. When we stayed, the site was mainly families and other couples, and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere to the... More

We loved our stay on Cape Clear. Yurts were lovely, warm and comfy. Sally and Dave could not have been more helpful and that extra attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Great place for a bit of chill time and stunning views. We will definitely be back (maybe just be a bit more prepared for the choppy sea ferry... More

My family and I headed to the camp site on Cape Clear not really knowing what to expect and not having camped in a long time - bk (before kids!). We ended up having a brilliant time first in the tipi and then the yurts. The tipi is just like a big tent and a novelty for 1 night. The... More

We LOVED it. We had three nights in a pretty, clean and well appointed yurt with the best sea views and a wood burning stove so effective we were roasting in minutes. The kids - (6 and 9) had a ball playing with the other kids on the site - the parents hung out together with bottles of wine knowing... More

Yurts located overlooking unobstructed views of south harbor and rolling hills peaked by ancient lighthouse. Woodstove within for nocturnal warmth. Gazillion hiking paths, all with views to die for overlooking ancient ruins or 270 to 360 degree ocean views depending how high you hiked. Only 1 bathroom per gender and it's a 35 yd walk straight up for release. 1... More
