“Cracking few days despite the rain!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights from the 13th aug with our two small children in a touring caravan. Yes, the lane down to the site is poor but the torrential rain has not helped. Pitches are well laid out with lovely views over the water. Grass was very wet due to the terrible weather & wellies were a necessity. However, despite the rain we had a great time mainly due to the very pleasant people we met & the very welcome space of the campers sitting room. We sing & play music so being able to bring the two children up here & mingle with others in front of a peat fire with a glass or two was great! This cosy room has lots of books & musical instruments & is a great informal area, brilliant for the kids too. We had a few great sessions with kids joining in & it didn't matter what the musical experience was, all were welcome! The strand is stony but excellent for searching for crabs with the kids & it's so close to the pitches that it's very safe. Perfect place to chill out & relax!!!! Would visit again!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Myself and my partner stayed at Mannix Point in the summer of 2011. I was in desperate need of some relaxation after returning to college as a mature student! From the moment we arrived at the campsite, we were absolutely seduced by the stunning scenery and the fantastic welcome we received. A lovely guy cycled around to show us a choice of pitches for our tent, and we settled on one near the waters edge. I wish I could describe and do justice to the amazing scene that greeted me each morning as I woke.

As seasoned campers, we found the facilities and staff to be second to none. I could not recommend Mannix Point more highly. Thank you to all who were so kind and helpful, they made my stay so memorable. Hope to see you all again soon.

We stayed for a week at mannix point after having read the rave reviews. We were staying in our touring caravan (this is our first season) but we have been camping throughout ireland and the uk for many years.
On arrival (after 8 hr drive) I was welcomed by a man who demanded that "for gods sake don't drive on the grass". In fairness this wasn't Mortimer who seemed to be much friendlier.
Also, I do appreciate that the area has suffered from one of the wettest summers ever so I can't criticise the swampy conditions!
What I can't forgive is the poor standard of cleanliness in the toilets/ showers. I appreciate shabby sheek but the showers and toilets were not clean and really put us off using them. There was a cleaner but she didn't seem to be very thorough and quite frankly the shower trays were disgusting.
Also a big annoyance was the half mile lane way which was so rutted and potholed that I feared it may damage my car and my bicycle.
On a plus side the location is fabulous and the views stunning, a great base from which to tour Kerry. Sorry for the poor review but we were really disappointed.

Just returned from a brilliant four night camping stay at Mannix Point.
On arrival site owner, Mortimer greeted me. I found him to be very welcoming and courteous. After explaining, I had come to the area to fish around the local coastline he helpfully suggested some fishing marks, (which paid off).
The nightly sessions in the recreation room were outstanding and recommended not to be missed with anyone who can play an instrument of warble a song or two always invited to join in.
The campers’ kitchen is extremely spacious with kitchen utensils, plates, cups, gas cookers, fridges and freezers units always available.
Just one minor niggle, though.
I felt the track from the Main Road down to the site was in very bad repair with some serious potholes along it. It was a nightmare trying to manoeuvre my car along it. God only knows what caravaners felt like.
I can only assume that the reason for it being in such bad repair was down to the continuous rain we’ve had since April.
Would I stay here again. Yes.

We had the best site!they gave us the site that they took the picture for the book. The campers kitchen was stocked with things that you seem to forget. It was clean and a great hangout room with a warm fireplace. There was some guitar, piano, singing and many laughs. We had beautiful weather!

We have just returned from an excellent 5 days at Mannix Point. The facilities are excellent for families with a kitchen, shower room and 'living room' area. The views from the site are magnificent with the pitches close to the water's edge. The town is close with plenty of places to eat and drink. The area itself is also magnificent with plenty of walking to do and sandy beaches!
