5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Spent 3 nights over the Easter weekend, in this beautiful campsite.. the owners are always on hand and very helpful and friendly.The showers are hot and spotless...but the highlight is the stunning beach...amazing. The children loved it and the campsite is very dog friendly. A blissfully relaxing few days..thanks Chris and Tatjana.. we hope to be back..

Arrived on Good Friday afternoon at this lovely eco campsite about 9 klms from Clifden village. The long dusty road that leads into the camp site is narrow and snaky but well worth the effort. We were very impressed to be welcomed so warmly by Kris and Tatyana Acton, a lovely touch that is very rarely seen. We travel all over the country camping but this is the only time we felt truly welcomed. Everywhere in the site was spotless and though there were loads of dogs it was completely quiet at night, nothing but the lapping of the waves, what more could you ask for. If you are looking for luxury then this is not the place for you; it's basic but absolutely faultless. Everything is recycled. If you like cycling there are fantastic cycling routes to follow and the campsite has bikes for hire. The village of Claddaghduff is only a short distance by car and bike where you will find a shop/post office and pub. You have to experience this wonderful place so my advise is to come along and experience it for yourself. We cannot wait to return.

A beautiful setting. We were blessed with good weather on our trip through Connemara and we were delighted we arrived at the campsite. The campsite is on the beach in a stunning location, it is sheltered and the facilities are excellent. Tatjana was very welcoming when we arrived. It is close to Clifden and definitely worth a visit if you are in that part of the country.

Clifden Eco Beach was by far the highlight of my adventure in Ireland. The campsite was so clean & beautiful. When we arrived in Clifden we were picked up with no problems at all and brought to the site where we got to pick out the spot that we wanted to camp (all beautiful choices)! We camped for 3 nights and definitely could've stayed longer. The amenities were always clean and the fact that we got free tea and coffee was so sweet. Perfect for a chilly night! The beach was beautiful & the views were outstanding. We hiked over to Omey island right beside the campsite and had a wonderful time exploring that as well. If I am ever in Ireland again, Clifden Eco Beach campsite is where I will stay!

This was by far the coolest campsite I have ever been to! It was the perfect balance of being close to nature and still having access to electricity and bathrooms. The views were astonishing and the couple that owns the campsite was extremely kind and helpful. Everything was clean and I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Why go abroad when you can go to Clifden Eco Beach Campsite in Connemara? I must admit that we were very lucky to be there for the hottest 2 weeks in July last year, but no matter what the weather, we always have the BEST holiday here. Kris and Tatyana Acton, the campsite owners are always at hand for any help you might need, and they've also added 2 new toilets, a shower, and a kitchen to their facilities, which are always kept spotlessly clean. Last summer we were able to go swimming and diving off the rocks nearly every day, or go out on the inflatable boat. It's also a great place for fishing, or long walks. In the evenings you can have a barbecue using the Eco friendly fire pits and wood you can buy from Kris, while you watch a fabulous sunset..This is truly an idyllic spot, and we have already booked to go back again this year, and hopefully for years to come. I would highly recommend this campsite...book now!!

I was there back in the summer. Such a lovely place, right at the beach with a breath-taking view, nice sand and spectacular sunsets. We were really lucky with the weather and had a great time. The people are very nice and will always help you to find the best spots around or if you have any questions about Ireland. The facilities are clean and showers are hot and free, they got their own private water, which is also nice to drink.
We will go back there asap.

Room Tip: Book in advance!
