“Ignorant Staff!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Stopped by to visit some friends who were staying in this park on Saturday last 20/7/13, We were told by an elderly member of staff who was working in reception that she would not let us through the barrier and if our friends wanted visitors then they would have to look after us themselves and come up to the barrier and let us in, she then told us to move our car as we were blocking the entrance, totally gobsmacked by her attitude, this person should not have been a 'front of house' member of staff and certainly should not be dealing with people. My advice is go somewhere else where your custom and money is appreciated.

This picturesque caravan park is overlooking Strandhill beach where surfers from all around the world come to enjoy the best beach breaks in the country. Its prime location is only a 5 minute walk from the beach promenade where you can find a good selection of restaurants, pubs, seaweed baths, take-aways and newsagents.

The park itself has plenty of comforts; campers kitchen, games room, library, TV room and laundry room complete with washing machines, dryers and ironing facilities. A fob is needed to enter the shower and toilet area which is a plus. They also provide an outdoor surfer’s shower point as well as a special needs ensuite. There is internet access available around the park and a security barrier at the entrance.

Just outside the park there is a tennis court, young children’s play area as well as a zip wire and older children’s play-ground.

Everything you want is nearby. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would certainly recommend it to anyone. Come and see for yourself you won’t be disappointed.

We have stayed here on a few occasions and the site has always provided great facilities. Staff are always friendly and helpful. The site has all the facilities that you would expect. The location is perfect nestled below the mountains and there is a great beach within walking distance which is the perfect place for surfing. Close by is Sligo town and the infamous Coney Island.

Strandhill Caravan and Camping Park has been an old favourite of our familiy for many years. We hadn't been there since Easter 2010 so we were impressed by the new facilities that had been put in during our absence. There is a new reception area complete with a TV room, a pool room and a very impressive camper's kitchen. The council have also installed a new playpark just right beside the caravan site which the kids loved.
We spent a lovely night in Strandhill Caravan and Camping Park and enjoyed it so much that my husband and I persuaded the grandparents to mind the kids so we could come back on our own for a night a few weeks later. We had a great night on that visit as well.

We stayed here on 18th July travelling trouygh on our cycle from Mizen to Malin head. We had stayed in a few campsites along the way and can say that strandhill really was one of the best, in terms of cleanliness, great location and excellent really friendly staff. Strandhill is to be highly recommended for its high standards.

I returned here again in our camper. Once again we were delighted by this site. The manager Tom and his staff work very hard to maintain the excellent standards we experience at this site. The facilities and location are great. To be highly reccommended

Camped for a week, found it to be very good. Clean,tidy well run, no noise. Showers/toilets spotless. Good value for two adulds and two kids. Good access to beach although beach is not safe for swiming due to swell . But great for surfing and body boarding. Kids love playground/ tennis although it is public it was not busy.
