Ground was very wet as we had had a few days of rain but we managed to have a pitch that was relatively dry. The showers are realy good and plenty of space to take you bag of clothes in without it getting wet. Mungo is the manager and he is quite helpful. I had to use the washing machine... More

We stayed here as a family of 4 in our caravan for the All Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships. We were welcomed by a very pleasant man who advised us to go to reception. We met Mungo who explained all about the site & we paid up front €140 for 4 days without awning. Our pitch was fine & ideal for... More

Have stayed here a few times in our touring caravan. There is a nice little park for the kids. On our first night there was a Garth Brooks tribute playing in the bar which was an added bonus and great craic. The staff are very friendly and the showers and toilet block are spotless. Location is brilliant for Ballyshannon and... More

Stayed in a caravan for 2 nights with our 2 children and had a great time. Park was great and staff were very friendly and also supplied us with 2016 booklet of caravan locations which was our bible for the rest of our 2 week trip around Ireland! Would recommend !

Super location on the lakeside with lovely views and a walk. Problem was the cold and rain. Nice site with level, hard standing pitches. Electricity on a nice level pitch. Water nearby. Loos and washing facilities nice and clean but the doors opened directly outside. The block behind reception is much better. Wi-Fi only works near reception (great in the... More

This unfortunate incident did take place but one or two points I would like to clarify. I am onsite 24 hours. The barrier giving access to this side of the site was locked. The people that removed the caravan actually wheeled the caravan across the grass and onto the driveway without disturbing any other residents. A simple ball hitch clamp... More

This site is set close to the very old town of Ballyshannon, and by the dam of Lough Erne. It is in a lovely setting beside the lake and is within easy reach of the Belleek pottery and further to Enniskillen. BUT the site is not well cared for and the toilet and shower facilities are grubby and rather neglected.... More

Firstly, I just wanted to comment on the review from Joseph from Derry. I think the comments directed towards Mungo were out of order. I stayed here in August and found Mungo to be friendly, professional and informative. The facilites are clean and useable and 3 star as advertised.
