With a camper you can park right up to the sea wall with no view restrictions. Caravaners can sometimes be blocked in or have restricted views because they need the hard standing.
Good facilities although €1 for a shower on top of the €30 pitch is a bit naughty considering all the other 10 sites around Ireland didn't charge. I'm told in Galway you are charged for breathing!!
Good cycle path into Galway (2km) along the sea front or use the grey hound track for all day parking (€4) as the streets are limited for two hours only.
