We couldn't believe when owner would not admit us to this campsite because we have, wait for it - CHILDREN!
It seems dogs are welcome, but not children. Does this not discriminate???
- Free Parking
This place is everything it is hyped up to be - and then some! After a few badly treated camp sites we've been to prior to coming here - with kids running riot and wrecked loos etc. this place was such a revelation. I used their amenities first and was so blown away by the cleanliness of it all that I lead my partner in blind-folded and "revealed" the glory at the push of the light switch. It really is that great! I don't think I have ever seen a public space so cared for and lovingly maintained! Unfortunately we experienced a period of heavy rainfalls there which brought unprecedented amounts of water and got the underground sewage levels up (we were in a tent - so "nose to the ground). But even so I would have liked to "move in". Thumbs up to the owners (ex-pat Brits with a nice sense of humour)... oh and did I mention...no kids? Heaven on Earth!

This award winning site is everything I imagined it to be situated in a serene locality overlooking Lough Arrow. This Adult site provides spacious modern amenities maintained to the highest standards providing free spacious showers, privacy cubicles, ladies hair dryer, hand dryers, laundry room, wash up facilities and campers kitchen with free hot and cold running water.
When we arrived we were welcomed by Mary Wilson who runs this site with her husband Terry. There are 20 pitches with 10 amp electric hook ups. It's the first camping site I have visited that felt like a close knit community. It was so peaceful and rural yet within easy reach of Boyle which is located approx. 6 miles away.
This was their second last weekend of the season, they will reopen again on March 17th. In spite of the cold weather there were several campers enjoying their weekend break in this calm rural location surrounded by beautiful scenery.
This is a fisherman's paradise with catches last month weighing over seven pounds. The Wilsons keep a log of all fish caught during the season.
We loved this place and cannot wait to return next year. If you want to get away from everything and just relax this is the place to be.
