“worst holiday ever so bad we had to laugh”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

where do i begin? The Smell it was so bad a mixture of damp and urine, the broken door and window frames, the random door matts scattered on the main carpet to cover the stains no central heating no washhand basin in the toilet (it was in a separate room with the shower) the attitude of who I think is the daughter of the owner and the attitude of her dad when we tried to point these faults out. I feel that I need to point out here that we had paid 495 euros for the week for this mobile home their top rate and it definitely wasn't like the mobile home on their website it was truly terrible. I have read other reviews and I really dont know where the 4 and 5 stars are coming from i can only surmise that either we got the very worst van on the site or that they were in their own touring caravans. I also intend to contact the irish tourist board to see how they explain the 4 stars and the icc to see exactly what the awards were for because they surely did not see the mobile home that we were offered. The only upside to this whole experience was that we did get our money back and an apology from the older woman who seemed to be the only one with any manners and we then headed home and we did actually laugh about the whole thing it really was that bad that it was either laugh or cry.

Room Tip: use for touring vans only

Just spent the June bank holiday weekend here and have to say it was probably one of our best short breaks. We have camped a lot ourselves as a couple but it was the first time to camp with the kids and they absolutely had a ball and didn't want to come home at all. We had a family tent and also hooked up to the electricity which we found brillitant as we used our cooler box as our fridge and we could also use our electric kettle for tea. The park was so clean and well equipped. The owners were extremely nice and friendly. I was so impressed by the site that I decided that I would write a review on the park when I got home. There is so much for kids to do on site. There is a room with a table tennis table that has bats left for use. You can buy the ball for a euro at the shop or better still bring your own! Beside that is another large room that has two football tables there - 50 cent per game. In here is the tv with couches and chairs and also a huge shelving area with leaflets for all sorts of activities and restaurants in the area. There is also an open fire here which was not lit while we were there but there was some wood and turf in a bucket beside it so maybe it is lit in colder weather. Beside this room is the campers kitchen which has a lot of tables and chairs to dine inside. It is equipped with a microwave and an oven. There is also an electric kettle for use and a fridge for storage. It also has sinks to do your washing up with plenty of hot water. Next there was an outdoor bbq area which had picnic tables for dining outdoors. It had 4 stone built in areas for to bbq your food. You could either buy the bbq charcoal at the shop or a disposable one or bring your own as some people did. Opposite this was the playground which my youngest really enjoyed. On site there was also a tennis court and further down was a large football pitch. We used the showers on our last morning and found them clean and very good even for my two who always complain about hot/cold/water in eyes etc. etc. but strangely enough no complaints here! It cost 1 euro for a token and 1 token gave about 5/6 minutes of good hot water so it was more than adequate. The shop is stocked with all the essentials that you might need. Ballina town itself has tescos, dunnes, lidl and penneys so there is plenty of places to stock up on whatever you need. Eventhough it rained solid for 14 hours from Saturday evening through Sunday morning (with two little leaks in the living area of our tent) it didn't put us off as the park was so good and so well equipped. The kids really didn't want to leave as they had made friends too. We will definatley be coming back to this park and would highly recommend this especially for families.

we arrived on Good Friday for a 3 night stay and were given a warm friendly greeting.

Facilites were clean and well presented. Good kitchen/bbq area and TV room.

Park is well laid out and very clean. The owners laid on an Easter egg hunt for the children.

Site is well situated for touring in North Mayo.

We have just had 4 nights at Belleek and it was excellent.

In short it is a very well laid out park with loads of space and good facilities. The owners run a good site and maintenance is of a high standard.

When considering where to stay I used Trip Advisor (as you are now) and was in two minds about this place because of two poor reviews. Let me put your minds to reast this place is good. With respect to the poor reviews I would like to draw your attention to the fact hat one poor review was written by a visitor rather a customer. For my money I'm very happy that the owners do not tolerate interlopers on their site. They are very clear that everyone needs to report to recepetion so in short I'd ignore that review. The other poor review is by a younger person who seemed to have a bad weekend - happens us all every now and then - but in fairness to the people trying to make a living for Bellek camping review seems to have been written in a fit of rage it is very unbalanced and does not give a true reflection of the place. I can;t say that this review ought to be dismissed but they are not describing the site I stayed in this week.

One small suggestion for the team is to spruce up the children's play area over the winter. It's looking tired.


Thanks and yes we'll be back.
