“Peaceful and secluded with stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2008

Visited this beautiful camping site on their last weekend of the season which was Friday 26th September 2008. It was our first time to visit this park and we were pleasantly surprised by its size. We were greeted by Thomas at the reception which was a lovely wooden cabin adorned with animals which were beautifully mounted by a Taxidermist. There was a red squirrel, a badger and a fox.

The park was quiet because of the time of year but the weather was mild and the views from our pitch beside the lake were a sight to behold. It must be a magical place to be during the summer I cannot wait for the season to recommence.

There are plenty of amenities during the summer season with fishing, swimming, kayaking, rowing and with the large green areas one can enjoy soccer. There is also a tennis court and plenty of outdoor picnic areas.

The park is full of wildlife, huge trees, a spectacular lake and wilderness. An ideal place for children to run free and be safe.

The walk into Mountshannon takes about twenty minutes. There is a long country road into the park but when you go onto the main road it's busy and caution is needed, so be warned. In the village itself there is a quaint shop/pub called Keane's Bar and they supply the usual necessities. They are very friendly and helpful but if you need anything out of the ordinary you will have to travel to Whitegate which is about 6 miles away.

We were not impressed by the choice of food in Mountshannon, we thought that a take-away would be more appropriate for the tourist rather than a pizza bar and 'overpriced' restaurant. So we had to travel to The Half Barrel in Whitegate for our food. They will accommodate you if you wish to take your food away which is what we did. The food was plentiful and very tasty.

We cannot wait for 2009 to make a return visit.
