Two middle aged novice campers with colly dog embarking on a two week tour of Ireland. The welcome here was amazing, nothing too much bother. Loved picking our own pitch, sorry anyone who heard the other halfs deafening snores breaking the peace and tranquility. Excellent clean facilities, kitchen best we seen on our trip. The welcoming peat fire in the... More

This place is a credit to the owners. Everything is spotless. You get a true Irish welcome. The view is lovely. Kitchen, eating areas and especially the hang out room with fire and instruments really make this place special. Highly recommend.

This is a great site in a wonderful location. Front line pitches have amazing views over the sea. Direct access to shingle beach and water. Toilets and showers very clean only downside is that showers require tokens. Facilities for campers in tents best we have ever seen full kitchen facilities equipped with pans and utensils etc, great dish and clothes... More

Our family (6 people in total) stayed here Friday to Tuesday in late June. We arrived late so we didn't get the meet Mortimer until the following day. There was a sign up which told us to pitch our tent and come back later to check in/pay etc. This is a nice touch because you don't have to wait around.... More

Hello Bob M I remember you well. Six soaked cyclists. Not a pretty sight. Then after a shower and with dry clothes, six humorous Dubliners, transformed. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday and look forward to you returning on a sunny day. Thanks for the great review. Cheers. Mortimer. More

We stayed at Mannix Point for 5 nights. Superb site in a peaceful, very scenic location with excellent facilities and great attention to detail. Mortimer and his team were very friendly and helpful. Despite the rough weather, a trip to the Skelligs was the unmissable highlight of our stay. We shall certainly return.

Hello Bryngo. Praise indeed. Thanks for your kind comments. I am pleased that you managed to land on Skelligs despite the poor weather. I have been there about thirty times and want to go again. It is so special. I am pleased to know that you intend to return to Mannix Point. Cheers, Mortimer. More

I am very happy I chose this campsite. Great spots to pitch your tent and also one of the cheapest around. A bummer though that you have to pay extra for showers, but that is not an exception in Ireland. Had a lovely night of camping and it was easy to meet people due to the size of the site... More

Hello Daniel H. Thank you for your great review. A visitor once wrote “Mannix Point is a dangerous place. It traps you”. I think you know what he meant. I look forward to your next visit. Cheers, Mortimer. More

We found Mannix Point about 15 years ago, and have been returning twice yearly since! Mortimer is always planning and changing and it is hard to imagine what else can be done to build on perfection. We have just returned,very bad weather,but the wild beauty and calmness of the site just grab us every time. Mortimer and Pat could not... More

Hello Helen W Thank you for your great review. You seem to have got the hang of the computer now. It is always a pleasure for me to meet you. If county Meath was nearer to Kerry I am sure we would meet more often. I look forward to your next visit. Cheers, Mortimer. More

We were unlucky: despite it being the beginning of June, it was only 10 degrees and blowing a gale. That, however, did not detract from the site at all. Excellent, level pitches on hard chippings. Electric hookup points available for each pitch & water taps close by. You can park right on the water's edge, with fabulous views overlooking the... More

Hello Martinfa. The weather was certainly not very kind to during your time at Mannix Point. We have experienced very colt winds for all of May and the first half of June….the coldest that I remember and I have seen quite a few Mays and Junes!!! Thank you for your excellent review. I hope we meet at Mannix Point again... More
