“Bayview Caravan Park”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

Very dissapointed by Bayview caravan park. Had arranged the seasonal rental of a mobile home (or so I was lead to believe) but it was rented to another party who contacted them after me because they stayed there last year. Very unhappy to be told this at the last minute.Surely this is not the way to do business.

Stayed March 2012, traveled with family

We have just staryed at Bayview for three nights as a short getaway. We had problems with the elctricity in our van and had run out of gas! It was 9pm at night and the site warden (Gary) was brilliant in opening up the shop and allowing us to swap a gas cylinder which we then payed for in the morning.
The site was busy as usual but not overcrowded, not noisy and a pleasure to stay at.
Many thanks to all the staff,

Emma and Dominic

I believe the reviews that gave Bayview Caravan Park 1 star to be entirely rubbish. These reviewers criticise the facilities, the staff etc. One guy says the beach is awful - what's that got to do with the caravan park?? The beach is several hundred yards away... I stayed at Bayview caravan park with my wife and 2 kids for our holiday in Galway in July of this year, and found the facilities grand. Everything they advertise they have - hot showers, clean restroom blocks, modern caravans etc. Personally i found the staff friendly and good craic, It's a family-run caravan site and I had no conflicts with the staff (like one reviewer says) - in fact quite the opposite, I found the staff to be very helpful. And the other guests that stayed there were for the most part well behaved and good craic also. A lot of French campers go there annually and they are very well behaved. The place is very conveniently located, just like they advertise. It's close to all the attractions in Salthill (the golf course, Salthill prom, Leisureland etc). It's very suitable for families and couples. Bayview is over 50 years old and has a certain romantic and historic charm and culture that will delight a lot of people. All-in-all I have to say we had a very enjoyable holiday and we'll definitely stay there again when we're back in Galway.

Just back from a very enjoyable holiday at Bayview with my young family, we found the staff to be very nice and helpful. The place is very well kept, the grass is like a golf course and there are beautiful flowers everywhere. The mobile we were in while maybe not last years model was spotless and ideal for young children. This is a great place for young families or couples, there was quite a number of French and other young people camping but no noisy types as you might find in other less supervised places. Its near the shops, beach(Salthill blue flag I think) playgrounds for the kids 5 minutes away....what more could one ask for

This caravan site is awful! Cold shower every morning! Toilets and showers not cleaned from one day to the next! Generally run down and uncared for! Delapidated residential caravans! Also very expensive 35 euro per night for a family of 5!!

Quitre simply dont stay here. The beach is awful beside the site, the washing facilities are very primative and above all THE STAFF ARE EXTREMLY RUDE! I found the were very short fused and blunt with most campers from northern ireland which i noticed they werent with southern ireland campers...a bit to much of a coincidence for my liking. take yourself to salthill caravan park, very friendly staff, great washing arrangments and great view. dont give bayview a secound thought if you actually wana enjoy a holiday! In fact if you dont beleive me call the lady from bayview and if you actually get anyone to answer the phone then just ask a few questions like how much it costs to you actually see how rude they can be. My solid advice, go stay at salthill caravan park.
