We are in the ACSI discount scheme for motorhomes & in the book it shows the maximum price of 18 euro per night. When we checked in we discovered that the price had increased to 21 euro & was given some drivel about having extra amps. If you want the advantages of this scheme charge accordingly or get out.

I am disappointed and disgusted at the inaccuracy of your review! The ACSI discount system, yes, shows E18 per night, with 6 amp electricity, the lowest amp we have on site is 16 amp and if you refer to your book you will have to pay an increased fee, which is in this case, E3. We have ACSI groups staying... More

Plenty of room to run about and bbq. walking distance from ballyshannon and a short drive away from a number of beautiful beaches in Bundoran and Ballyshannon.

We stayed here in a motorhome at Easter and we were pleasantly surprised. We'd driven past it on numerous occasions never tempted to check it out however we thought it was great and would stay again. The staff were very welcoming, informing of all facilities that were available not only at the campsite but in the area. The pitches were... More

We arrived here mid to late evening following a long drive up from the south. I parked our motorhome at the reception area to sign in. On returning to the motorhome we found that all our batteries were dead... The gentleman that had booked us in spent probably one hour trying to sort out our problem, eventually we hooked up...

Stayed in Lakeside one night as a part of surfing trip. Place had no kitchen, biggest concern. Expensive for just a small tent. Also extra charge for outdoor shower.! Didnt feel welcome or invited to stay another night. Not clear where to ask for help, free wi-fi not offered. Location nice beside the lake but also beside very busy road,... More

I am almost tempted to say that by your description it was not Lakeside you were staying at! 1) Prices are clearly displayed at reception - small tent for two people is 20 euro 2) You mentioned extra charge for outdoor shower - all our showers are free and all enclosed. 3) Wi - Fi signage is very clear on...

A lovely site to stay at and facilities were clean. It is very peaceful down beside a beautiful lake, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the rain. We can recommend the breakfast they serve there too, it was perfect before a long journey.

Don't get me wrong a nice site with facilities but nothing special. We had 4 pitches and 2 had awnings and electric and dogs and we have a toddler too so no problems there. The showers had hot water but weren't very powerful and the light kept going off every 3/4mins which got annoying quickly. The dog walk looked nice... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our site. Regarding your issue with the cost - It was 28 euro per night which is the equivalent of 23 pounds sterling. This includes electric which is E5 per night and Free Showers, which on other campsites, cost 2 euro per shower. To call it expensive, is not justified. Regarding the water... More

enjoyed my stay in the camp site with my grandchildren. staff were very good and helpful as they helped me to build the tent. Overall my stay at the campsite was very pleasant and would return again. It was a very child orientated campsite with lots to do for the kids!
