“Won't be rushing back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

Stayed in this campsite with my partner & two 9yr old boys. We were unlucky with the weather which didn't help but the campsite didn't impress me. The main part of the campsite is for caravans. The field for the tents is beside this but there is no facilities in this field so you have to walk a bit to go to the toilet or showers. Probably not a big issue if it wasn't spilling rain. On the website they advertise that there's a kids playground. The playground consists of ONE slide. We didn't see the games room as again this was in the middle of the caravans but the kids didn't seem to be impressed and trust me our kids are easily amused. The showers were clean but there was only 3 of them in the ladies and the water was just about warm. In the kitchen if you wanted hot water that was an extra charge. Overall it wasn't terrible but at €30 per night for 2 adults & 2 kids it wasn't great. Also it is a bit out of Salthill. If the sun had been shining you might walk but definately not in the rain or if you had small children

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

We stayed one night. The 'welcome' was pure indifference. Were charged E35 (the most expensive I have seen in Ireland).. no breakdown of price or receipt was offered.
The location is excellent, but that's as far as it goes! Facilities are dated and very poor - showers very basic and operated by coin-meter AND (never before seen in Ireland) they have the cheek to charge for washing-up water!.. all this after paying E35 per night!
The access to the shore is very limited and children's play facilities are laughable. I have never seen worse.
The site has a range of recycling bins (in accordance with local council policy, no doubt.) However, they are all NAILED SHUT!! All waste goes into an old sheep trailer.. A money-saving scheme?
All-in-all, an extremely disappointing site.. too lazy to make an effort, too mean to provide decent facilities, too greedy to treat customers fairly. This site SHOULD be an asset to Galway. It isn't. It's an embarrassment.
