“Laid Back Luxury”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

A group of us stayted here while cycling the Loop Head Cycleyway and the Owners, Kevin & Trea couldnt be more helpfull, its a very relaxed, pet friemdly, safe and is ideal for familes who want a taste of camping. The solar showeres, sauna, bell tents with stoves are only awesome.
I would recomend the Yoga session...its so realxing near the end i caught myself falling asleep.

A Group of 12 went down to Kilkee to celebrate a friend's 30th. We brought our own camping gear and camped in the "wild camping". The owners were extremely helpful on arrival, giving us a hand to bring down our 3 car loads of camping gear (which we were very grateful for).
We set up our tents and got settled into our new homes for the next 2 nights. The facilities are very clean (i.e shower and toilet block).
We had an amazing time and would def recommened for small groups or families, as there was a few families while we were there also.

We had a fabulous time at Purecamping a few weekends back. The owners are very professional and keen to look after all their guests and also very laid back and friendly. Our tent had a stove, futons and matresses. It was very comfortable, spacious and cosy at nighttime. The facilities are excellent and the owners have an ecological and ethical slant on everything, without being too earnest, from the eco toilets, showers and sauna to their free range cock and hens wonderering about the campsite.
Trea and Kevin supplied pizza dough which we made into gourmet pizzas in their wood fired pizza oven, using crabmeat bought from local fisherman.
Our kids loved running wild and exploring the site and adjacent woods which date back thousands of years and contain remains of a ring fort.
The campsite overlooks the ocean, it is set in picturesque loop heas, and there are lovely beaches and other attaractions to vist in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a large bell tent. it is slightly cheaper if you want to bring your own bed linen and duvets...

This place is a must for campers. We were two groups with three kids. The bell tents were very comfortable and the stoves were a fantastic addition and were very welcome as it was raining continuously and slightly chilly. The rain and cold did not take away from the wonderful place that the owners have created with a huge central geodesic dome where children can play with toys and games provided on rainy days. In the evening we cooked in the communal kitchen and had a chat with likeminded campers. Back in the tent, with the stove lit it was so cosy. We've already booked again and this time it will be sunny so we're extra excited that we may get to visit the local beach! I wish them all the best with this venture and hope that it goes from strength to strength in the future.

A hidden Gem that you want to keep hidden but you cannot help but tell people about. A family run camp site, they make each and everyone of their guests feel as if they are apart of. A place with real hospitality, beautiful scenic landscapes, a full range of clean and well kept facilities, very affordable prices, we will be back very soon! Thank you!

Room Tip: Check out the 'Hazel' Glamping tent!

We are just back from 3 days in Pure Camping and had a great time. Trea and Kevin, along with their Son and Daughter, could not have been more welcoming. Our two young sons loved the campsite, they had plenty of space to run around and make new friends. The facilities were everything a camper would need and more. We travelled all around Loop Head and saw some amazing views and scenic countryside see, which made the trip worthwhile. My 2 sons and I also went down the road to Carmen's stables and had a nice trek on her horses, although my legs are still trying to recover!

Just back from the most perfect weekend away in pure camping! So many things made this weekend so enjoyable .. the beautiful bell tents, amazing outdoor pizza oven,campfires, outdoor sauna, outdoor solar powered showers .. The list is endless not to mention the most beautiful surroundings!

A stroll down from the bell tents there is a wonderful forest section for wild camping .. Great to just throw the welly boots on and explore!

Kevin and Trea the owners are so friendly, helpful and genuinely lovely people.. Nothing was too much trouble and were a fountain of knowledge of the surrounding areas and all things outdoors..

Was great to get greeted every day by the 3 most friendliest dogs.. My daughter loved playing with them .. Even the hens came over every morning to our tent and greeted us. My daughter had great fun helping feeding feed the donkeys every day too !

Carmens horse riding is also just around the corner..it was a lovely highlight to trek down to the beach and such a great way to end off the evening after a cycle around loop head.. We slept like baby's that night :)

On our last day we even got to see 2 dolphins splashing
around for at least 15 minutes by the shore down by the Pier.. Simply amazing !

Anyways lets just say I am already making plans for a
return visit during the summer ..
A little gem of a place !!
