We wanted to stay here for 5nights but left after two and won't be back.there are dogs everywhere and some people let their dogs roam around and poo everywhere and never cleaned it up.Yes there are sheep but it wasn't sheep dung!!!people were walking their dogs on the beach and letting them go wherever they wanted and our children got it on their hands twice in the time we were there..
We had to use the kitchen as we were camping and there was only one...yes one stove top working for the campers...we ended up having to have take out.
There is a swing top bin in the kitchen which had seen better days and was disgustingly filthy and there was no recycling bin in the kitchen and as a result everything went into the bin.
The showers are a joke...filthy and 4minutes...for a euro...the toilets are so small you have to squeeze beside the bowl to close the door.
The site is in a fab location and I think the owners just don't give a damm..there is a huge brown dog on the way in..the owners..and he barks and barks whenever anyone goes past..and barks and barks.
We needed to bring 2cars and we were charged for parking an xtra car...wtf!!!

There were people near us camping who were drinking until 4am outside their tent making a lot of noise and I dont know if the night supervisor was deaf or not on duty but they were very very noisy.
The staff seemed very young but were polite and helpful.
God only knows what any foreigners think of the set up.we won't be back

We drove in here looking for a place to camp on the Saturday of the August Bank Holiday weekend and very quickly drove back out again. The campsite was very busy (to be expected) but the facilities were terribly dirty and untidy.

The location is fantastic and hopefully the facilities are better maintained at quieter times of the year but I couldn't have stayed on this occasion!

We stayed mid July 2012, in one of the caravans for the experience and excitement for our little boy as we all love swimming, water sports and surfing! The location was fantastic, very very central to the beach, the local pubs and resturants. The staff were friendly and very helpful!The accomadation was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The washing machine and tumble dryer facilities were excellent, especially for wet suits!! I would 100% recommend this caravan and camping park as I think you would go far to find any better!!!!!

Husband and I stayed here last weekend in our tent, and the location is beautiful and perfectly placed. Agree that its a bit overpriced for 1 tent but the facilities are great if like me, you like to camp, but also like a shower as well! Staff member (John?) who checked us in was lovely, jovial and friendly but the female we saw the next day was not friendly at all. All in all, it was great for us and we appreciated the gorgeous location and access to toilets!

Room Tip: Pitch your tent close to the beach fences at the far side of entrance

This caravan is one of the best location parks I have stayed in. Direct access to the beach it was fantastic, Keel beach is a 3km beach and wonderful for kids. The caravan park itself was fine with electric and easy access to water. The shower blocks were not so nice - perfectly functional but I would not say they were very clean, the shower curtains are really a thing of the past and they are just unhygienic. Other than that I have no other complaints did have much of a welcome but pleasent enough....
