We camped at this hostel and campsite in June 2014. Very well kept grounds, ample electricity and water points, welcoming staff. We found the kitchen, which is actually the hostel kitchen, really well stocked with multiple hobs and crockery (a few extra drying cloths wouldn't go astray). The toilets and showers were very clean. The site is in a great location because of its proximity to the quay -where you can enjoy a one hour cruise 365 days a year (at 11:15) or a longer boat trip (at 3pm)- and to the lovely village of Cong. We enjoyed the local cafes, pottered about the abbey, and would have loved more time to explore the nature trails in the woods. The campsite playground was a big hit with the children -it needs a little TLC to keep it looking good -standards of public playgrounds have soared in Ireland recently. (Lovely one in Cornamona which we discovered while out and about -complete with picnic tables). We'll be back! (By the way, the local Spar delivers to the hostel/campsite -how handy is that?!)
