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

Just back from the weekend in Cape Clear. We stayed in the campsite and really enjoyed it. The family that run it did everything to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The yurts were fabulous, clean and cosy, ideal for a family or romantic get away from it all. The weather wasn't great but we were snug out in the... More

We had such a lovely break staying in well equipped Yurts. One of the nights was a perfectly moon lit night and the light flooded into the Yurt. In the morning we opened the door to blazing sunlight and a fantastic view. It was a little cold at Easter but we had the stove in the Yurt. During the evening... More

What can I say about this fantastic place?? I don't know where to start! Cape Clear is a paradise, its like another world, fantastic place for walking, relaxing and enjoying some spectacular scenery. All of the locals are very friendly and happy to tell you about the island. Then you come to the yurts, absolutely fantastic. I was nervous about... More

We came to the campsite with every intention of staying in a tipi but after one glance at the yurts, we felt we had no choice but to stay in one! We were very lucky with the glorious weather which made the surrounding scenery all the more beautiful. Sally met us at the ferry with her van and transported our... More

Even before you get to the beautiful Cape Clear Island, you arrive at the picturesque village of Baltimore. We arrived on a sunny Saturday and got the Ferry from Baltimore to Cape Clear, €16 return per adult. The Ferry was great fun and the scenery is amazing, we were even luck enough to see Dolphins. Our lovely host Sally collected... More

This campsite is well run from start to finish. We arrived on the afternoon ferry and were transported to our Teepee site by Mary's bus- Sally and Dave were very welcoming and the facilities were excellent. The location is just magical especially with the great weather that we had during our stay. Very peaceful at night. Very good for families;... More

Hi Tommy, so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and on the island. We do meet every ferry and pick up all our customers bags, so not sure how we missed you and you got the bus, though we do remember someone arriving by bus this year! Hope to see you back here again! Sally & dave More

This is a really lovely campsite, run with great energy and care by Sally and Dave. We had a really lovely stay for 5 nights in one of the teepees which are simple and clean.The whole campsite exudes a relaxed and helpful atmosphere. We'll definitely come again.
