Stayed at this site over the weekend of the Donegal rally. A really well run and spotlessly clean site with plenty for kids to do. Beautiful beach nearby and the stunning Knockalla mountain which overlooks the site is well worth a drive up to view the scenery. Will definitely be back.

All the facilities in the park are spotlessly clean. The owner was always around if needed. I found him very helpful and all the staff were friendly and helped to make our stay a pleasant one. Would certainly recommend a visit.The scenery is very beautiful and there is a good mountain walk just beside the site. We arrived after 10pm... More

I have just returned home after three wonderful days at knockalla caravan park. This whole site is spotlessly clean, the showers/ toilets are lovely and warm which is great when you have small grumpy children. Myself, husband and children aged 12, 8, and 6 found Colin the owner nothing but helpful and kind. The play room is right beside the... More

Never in 34 years of holidaying in Donegal have I had an experience like this! The owner is exceptionally rude to children. They do not like you to pitch tents after 8pm, so get there before this time. Overall a terrible experience. We stayed for 35 mins before demanding a refund and leaving. If you are looking for a beautiful... More

There are two sides to every story and this is not the full account. First of all we have no problem whatsoever of anyone arriving after 8p.m. as we are on site at all times. We expect everyone to respect the speed limits on our site as the safety of our residents is paramount. Also guests are required to register... More

Nice site, helpful staff. The amenities are fine; clean with unlimited hot water. The restaurant had a limited menu of plain food when we were there. The area is very beautiful, and there's a pub within walking distance. All static vans except for one row down the bottom. Free Wi-Fi, only works at the reception/ kiosk area. It's switched off...

Thanks for your review. In regards to the wifi being switched off between 8:30 - 8a.m. this is not the case atall. The wifi is available 24/7. The cafe offers a varied range of foods from full irish breakfasts to salads, paninis, pizzas, take away foods and fresh home baking. We agree the public transport services are not great in... More

Caravan Park, 5 Star, Very clean wit beautiful beaches and scenery but the owner of the park namely 'Colm' was very unpleasant to my children. He doesn't seem to like noise from children, surely that is what holidays are all about (Letting your hair down and having fun). His wife is a very pleasant lady whom gives you the time... More
