“What a location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Friendly welcome .Beautiful location, quiet and everything spotlessly clean. Only small gripe, just wish there was a separate Ladies and Gents toilets as opposed to all for one and one for all, maybe that's just me and it certainly woulden't stop me going again which I plan to do.

Arrived on Good Friday afternoon at this lovely eco campsite about 9 klms from Clifden village. The long dusty road that leads into the camp site is narrow and snaky but well worth the effort. We were very impressed to be welcomed so warmly by Kris and Tatyana Acton, a lovely touch that is very rarely seen. We travel all over the country camping but this is the only time we felt truly welcomed. Everywhere in the site was spotless and though there were loads of dogs it was completely quiet at night, nothing but the lapping of the waves, what more could you ask for. If you are looking for luxury then this is not the place for you; it's basic but absolutely faultless. Everything is recycled. If you like cycling there are fantastic cycling routes to follow and the campsite has bikes for hire. The village of Claddaghduff is only a short distance by car and bike where you will find a shop/post office and pub. You have to experience this wonderful place so my advise is to come along and experience it for yourself. We cannot wait to return.

A beautiful setting. We were blessed with good weather on our trip through Connemara and we were delighted we arrived at the campsite. The campsite is on the beach in a stunning location, it is sheltered and the facilities are excellent. Tatjana was very welcoming when we arrived. It is close to Clifden and definitely worth a visit if you are in that part of the country.

Clifden Eco Beach was by far the highlight of my adventure in Ireland. The campsite was so clean & beautiful. When we arrived in Clifden we were picked up with no problems at all and brought to the site where we got to pick out the spot that we wanted to camp (all beautiful choices)! We camped for 3 nights and definitely could've stayed longer. The amenities were always clean and the fact that we got free tea and coffee was so sweet. Perfect for a chilly night! The beach was beautiful & the views were outstanding. We hiked over to Omey island right beside the campsite and had a wonderful time exploring that as well. If I am ever in Ireland again, Clifden Eco Beach campsite is where I will stay!
