Just back from a 3 day visit to this hidden gem. This was my family's first time out in a tent and must say this was a great start. Very secluded site with great views, was super quite as there was only 1 other tent on site for our stay. Quite a steep drive up in but keeps it out of they way, We pitched up on the top field up passed the ablutions, bit of a hill but not to much to bear. Super views and walks around the area. Toilet block had quite a few bulbs out, but has enough to be functional with plenty of hot water for showers and separate dishwashing facilities. Stand pipe at tent site as well. Strict rules about fires, which is understandable and dogs on leads even though the owner wanders around with 4 dogs off lead of his own. Rates weren't to bad for the area. Site has no other facilities on it and has strict noise rules and alcohol rules as well which suited us. No electricity on site at all so it was back to basics for us.

Me and my partner stayed here 1St July for a long weekend. Very quiet when we stayed, was only 3 other people. Toilet shower blocks were great hot water. Place to clean your dishes, fresh drinking water taps just outside the shower blocks. Views were amazing! The road up the camp site was a bit trying but understandable due to how steep it it. There is 3 fields to choose from, we stayed with the views of the lighthouse and mournes just behind us. Owner was lovely and very helpful. You can have your own camp fire and owner supply you with wood and fire starter which is 10. Which has went up from last year, other reviews said 6. 12 per tent per night and it was totally worth it. Was definitely stay again. Everything at your camp site, bloody bridge and the walk.

Very nice, well laid out campsite. All the usual amenities - shower / toilets clean and well maintained. Splendid views over the sea and out to a lighthouse at night. Great site for climbing slieve donard - the start is almost on the campsite.

I would recommend this campsite to anyone except loud / raucous groups.

We stayed at the weekend. Cracking views. Great spot. Easy found. Pity about the rough track up to the campsite, I think that might put a lot of people off, not us though. Great location. Very busy, granted it was the weekend of the air show and the campsite is just outside Newcastle. Love the strict no alcohol/music after midnight. Frank is a lovely man. We did hear some very loud music being played from the bottom site (we were at the top)in the day/evening time but thankfully it didn't last very long. We did notice the logs weren't easy to light (must purchase off Frank and use his fire pits supplied).

Thankfully those who had dogs with them were responsible owners who had their dogs on leads, apart from one dog who strayed loose for 2 days which was becoming quite a nuisance as we witnessed some children and adults who were clearly not dog lovers becoming quite anxious about the dog, as well as the responsible dog owners with their own dogs on leads were anxious for their own dogs as the stray dog kept going over to their dogs on leads, understandably this was quite annoying for them as they didn't know the stray dog so weren't sure if they could trust it with their own dogs as well as their own dogs getting agitated with a stray dog invading their wee space while on a lead. I personally wasn't keen on crawling out of my tent on Sunday morning and literally coming face to face with this stray dog. I don't know if it belonged to Frank or if it was there with other campers. Either way it was a little bit of a nuisance, albeit the dog turned out to not be a 'bad' dog although it did seem to pee against everyone's belongings, again not very pleasant.

That said, besides the dog, it was a great campsite, a great trip, stunning views, with the Mournes behind and the sea infront. We did hear people saying they wouldn't use the showers because it was only sectioned off by a curtain and while the male and female parts (2 showers and toilets in both male and female parts) had separate doors they were technically in the same building, so for safety reasons the general consensus was people didn't feel it was terribly wise/safe. Everywhere was clean with soap and toilet paper etc. The approach up to the showers began to get tricky to walk on in the rain as the area was just hard walked in muck with no grass but if you stick to the edges it's spot on. We will definitely be back and very much looking forward to it.

Hauntingly beautiful campsite, with the mountains behind you and the seashore just a stroll down the hill and across the road. The campsite is a hidden jewel, coming up from Newcastle look out for the Bloody Bridge car park on the left. The entrance to the campsite is just past the 2nd exit to the car park. There's a white gate but nothing to say its the campsite. The Bloody Bridge trail starts right next to entrance to campsite. Go up the steep, stony road then follow the signs and pitch wherever you like. Frank the owner will come and check in around 6. 30-7pm and sell you wood for the braziers which are in fact in good nick and excellent for BBQ's if you've got your own grills. The toilet block/showers are clean and pleasant with instant hot water. Dishes must be washed in the sink at the back of the block. It is a clean and very natural campsite. The views are incredible. At night you can see the lighthouse down beyond Newcastle We had sunny weather with only some rain and wind. We were very sorry to leave but will definitely go back as it was probably the best campsite we've stayed on.

Spent 2 nights here in early May. Paid 6 per person per night. The campsite is in a beautiful location with the sea just below and at the base of the Mourne mountains. There are 2 toilets and showers for females and they are very basic. It was windy and wet a lot of the time during our stay but we also had a day of perfect sunshine and enjoyed lunch at a picnic table of which there were several on site. We didn't go for a fire although we had planned to because the fire pits that we saw dotted around the site were very rusty. The seaside town of Newcastle is 2. 5 miles away and has many little shops and cafes. I would recommend this campsite if you are looking for a back to nature experience.
