We stayed here for 19 nights in August. It was our first time in Ireland.
From the moment we were met by Sean, to saying our goodbyes to Kathy, we had an amazing holiday.
They are head and shoulders above anything the Caravan Club has to offer in terms of hospitality and customer relations - and without even trying.
The site is immaculately maintained. Concrete pitches with large area between units. The layout means you never overlook anyone elses area. Toilet/showers are immaculate at all times of day and night.
The site is split into 3 areas, a group of statics set back, caravans/motorhomes in front and then a very large area for tents closer to the entrance.
The site is populated by solos, couples, friends and families and never seemed crowded.
The friendliness on the site and in the region in general is amazing. A walk past the statics to empty the wastemaster could take up to 20 minutes with everyone interested in a conversation.
Both Kathy and Sean are always on hand with a ready supply of information on where to go, when to go and which way was best. The recommendation of the Glenbeigh Hotel next door was taken up and did not disappoint.
The site sits on the Ring of Kerry so travel in either direction opens up wonderful trips, to Valentia Island, Cahirshiveen, Killarney, Kenmare, Dingle, Tralee , and the Gap of Dunloe.
In over 20 years of caravanning in the UK and Europe, this is up there with the best.
I left with a map that Sean had lent to me.
Looks like I'll have go back to return it.
