What a wonderful site! Our visit started with a really friendly welcome from Cathy as we arrived, she and Sean couldn't have been more helpful throughout our five day stay. They advised on places to visit, (and where to ask for discounts), where to eat a special meal, they seemed to be on duty all the time. The situation is ideal, there are beautiful views from the site and it is ideally placed for touring the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula and the Kilarney National Park. The site is really well cared for and kept spotlessly clean. Although the weather was pretty bad the wash rooms were always clean. Water and electric on or very near to each pitch, free Wi Fi available in the caravan. Now we've 'done' SW Ireland it is unlikely we will return but I whole heartedly recommend this site.
