O'Connors Doolin Riverside Camping & Caravan Park
Ranked #8 of 20 Specialty Lodging in Doolin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

The campsite is located in Doolin at a quiet site. Nice is the river that flows next to the campsite, gives you that extra outdoor feeling! You can walk to some very nice, nearby pubs with live music and good food, and the Cliffs of Moher are around the corner. For those who are actually camping: there are many wind free spots where you can place your tent. Good facilities as well.

We have stayed here twice now and have had a great experience each time. we received a warm and friendly welcome. The facilities were spotless and very easy to use. There is plenty of space to pitch a tent or bring mobile home or RV. We had a couple of cars and tents and had a great time. We were able to do a BBQ and light a fire. The shower facilities were exceptional and hot and for only a euro. I cannot fault this camp site.

We've camped here a couple of times now (but too lazy to write a review so far!), but it just has to be done. We camp in a tent so can't give advice for camper vans, but overall the facilities here and people running the show are top class.
THE SITE: This is not your typical square open field, odd shaped area alongside the river with 2 smaller sectioned-off areas. Gorgeous, perfect for pitching. Also worth noting, a small group pitched late the first night and music on quite loud (not that bad), we mentioned it to the staff and they immediately put a stop to it. Any time we've camped there's a mixture of young, old, couples, groups, and families so I'd say this is suitable for all types of campers.

OFFICE/ KITCHEN/ SHOWERS: Showers & toilets are immaculate 24/7 (not just in the mornings like other sites!). The kitchen has 2 separate hob cookers that operate using 1/2 euro coins. Haven't used them but am told they run for ages on nothing...handy if the rain comes in. Kitchen is also spotless, has several sinks and a communal fridge. Office stocks a few items like soft drinks, toiletries and ice creams as well as tonnes of info on local activities etc. As another poster said if the office is closed (rare) ring the bell and they're down within a minute. Nothing is a problem, always friendly, great for advice on local stuff and even let me put my ice packs in the ice cream freezer!

THE VILLAGE: Love it! Loved Doolin for years. It's quirky, got great music, trad pubs and more modern less touristy pubs too. Lovely cafes also. THere's a bit of everything here.

Doolin cafe is a gorgeous quaint place that does almost everything home-made, down to the little french fries and tomato ketchup.

I hear there's a lovely French sort of bakery/cafe on the way out of Doolin towards Galway to the right. Keep an eye out for it if you're there, I hear their cakes and coffee are divine!

Cruises go from the pier out to the cliffs everyday - well worth a look was amazing!

Rainbow Hostel (i think thats the name) does bike hire if you fancy a cycle around which is a great way to see everything and go a little further too.

....Oh and bring your midge spray! In this humid weather by the river you'll be glad to have it!

just back after staying 4 nights here with my boyfriend , our first camping trip and thankfully we picked a super site , very plesent owners , spotless campsite and facilities . nice little shop on site they run the B&B as well so if there not in the shop just ring the bell and they come over super quick. we brought our dog as well and kept him on a lead at all times was nice to be able to bring him as it works out cheaper than kennals !! great pub close by, very central to alot of activities . noticed other reviews saying there were issues regarding noise at night , we stayed around the campsite having a few drinks and giggles with friends we wrapped up about midnight which is fair enough i think and no problem , would highly recommend and were already planning out next trip over :)

This is a lovely campsite, kept to a very high standard. It has everything you could possibly need camping. The owners are so friendly and helpful and it's just a short walk to the local pubs. Their is a small shop at reception which is basic but has lots of snacks and drinks. We stayed in the very hot weather so it was lovely to wake up and have a ice cold drink from the shop. I would recommend this campsite to people of all ages. I was that impressed I'm returning next week.

Room Tip: As previously mentioned with other travellers, camping behind the hedges will minimise the breeze.
