Nights stayed: 3 Travelling as:  Retired couple
Reviewer: Barsar 56 reviews from this member

 This was the closest site to Dublin City we could find and we were charged well for the proximity. It was 43 euro a night at the beginning of June plus 1. 5 euro for a shower.

The site is located next to parkland but just off the N9 which is very busy so expect some background traffic noise. The further away from the front gate you get the quieter it is.

This is a transit site for those visiting Ireland's fair city so the daily turnover is high with a lot of continental travellers staying for a night or two.

Reception is quite large and the staff will give you all the information you need about transport plus maps. The Number 69 bus picks up at the site gates and will deliver you into the middle of Dublin for 2. 60 euro payable in exact coins. The journey takes up to an hour and the bus can get quite full.

The sanitary facilities have seen better days and are only superficially cleaned with a power hose. I suspect it could have been several weeks since any surfaces were cleaned with a cloth. It’s not the sort of place you want to drop your towel on the floor. The decor is dated and they are badly in need of an upgrade. Even at 1. 50 euro a time the water was only just warm.

The hard standing pitches are separated by hedges and almost all have a grey water outlet, water tap and power. There’s wifi a reception but not across the park.

There’s a Tesco and Aldi nearby and takeaways’ and pubs within a 5 min drive.

If you need to be near Dublin this is a good location but the facilities need upgrading and in my view it’s a ripoff. If visiting Dublin again I will select a site further away and use the train.

Reviewer: Joebar 1 review from this member

 Pros:

- Practical, convenient and cheap.

- Friendly host. Good transport links. Lots of space between tents.

Cons:

Cold showers. Motorway noise (very background, we forgot it was there but some people care a lot about these things)

We didn't care about the cons particularly and we cared a lot about the pros.

5 stars.

 Nicely situated, busy site.

Good access for Dublin on a bus and taxis readily available to book.

Didn’t use the facilities, used own.

Very busy, choose your own pitch.

 We took the new tolled tunnel out from the Dublin ferry, only €3 non peak times and cuts out some of the busier city roads. The campsite is easy to find and very straightforward, approx 25 minutes from the port.

On arrival there were 6 or 7 other units, still super speedy check-in within 5 minutes and all relevant information re buses to city etc. The Open Top Tour bus calls at the site in the morning, if you only want to go to the city and not to the tour its €2. 50 one way.

The pitches were very big, room for caravan, car, awning and similar awning space again for chairs etc. All pitches had water taps, grey drains and ehu.

Loos were clean and well maintained, showers an extra €2 a head, we didn't use so cant comment.

Despite the site being very busy on a Saturday night it wasn't at all noisy. There was some road noise but we pitches at far end and that limited.

Lovely park next door for walking, cycling etc. Nothing much else around the site as its a large business park area although there was a restaurant / bar within 10 minutes walk.

Overall a lovely campsite which has the bonus of being easy to reach from the ferry, as with most campsites in Eire more expensive than in UK at €30 (£27) plus €2 each for showers if used would be €34 per night for a couple.

 Stayed here for one night to be near the ferry home.

The receptionist was very helpful, giving good information about the bus into Dublin and the sites facilities.

Each pitch has hard standing, plus a grass area and hook up, water tap and grey waste on the pitch.

There is a large amenities block, we used the showers( 2 € for a token) and the toilets were clean. There is a washing up area and laundry, but didn't use.

There is free wifi but we found the connection intermittent.

Other people have mentioned the road noise, I was glad I had ear plugs as it is a continuous low drone.

We went into Dublin on the bus, cost € 6. 60 return, worth doing.

Bit expensive at €27 for one night plus charge for shower, but good for one night if you want to be near Dublin for the ferry.

 Spent 3 nights at this site at start of tour of Ireland. Easy access from main road and although some road noise we weren't disturbed by it.

Easy access into city centre by bus from gate (45 mins journey). Spent 2 hectic days site seeing & soaking up the Dublin atmosphere.

On arrival reception staff very helpful & provided a vast amount of information and we were advised to choose a pitch from those available. Facilities kept clean although could be updated (signs in toilet block advising some taps not working) large shower rooms with plenty of space for changing. Token required for showers but found this to be typical in Ireland. Big campers kitchen with washing up sinks.

Each pitch surrounded by hedges & lots of trees throughout site giving it a very rural feel with grey squirrels seen most days.

Many people appeared to use this site as a one night stop over (possibly for Ferry from Dublin)

In our experience campsites in Ireland are more expensive than in UK !

Would recommend this site for visitors to Dublin & will stay again.

Reviewer: Jeanff 10 reviews from this member

 Big site with pitches well separated and whilst busy over the Bank holiday pitches are well spaced unlike one site we stopped at near Athlone where the supposed 40 pitches had turned into 100!

Great location for a few days stop to explore Dublin prior to departure to Ferry port.

Good facilities, helpful reception service and information sheet. Showers require 2E tokens - good size cubicles with fixed heads (never ideal for women!) and no temperature control. Buses stop right outside and run to Fleet street (Centre of the city) for 3. 30E (exact fare) or the hop on hop off red tourist bus picks up and drops off in the city for 2 euros or you can buy the one (19E) or two day (22E) sightseeing ticket. Good value for getting to and from town although last return hop on hop off bus is 4. 30 p. M. Public bus is much later if you want to stop for a meal. There is a lovely big public park next door if you want to just chill or do some fishing. Site not handy for shops but take away menus can be used and food delivered at a small charge.

This site is used by a lot of British campers. The problem is that a lot of British vans do not have a compatible TV for Irish TV reception. The consequence is that people were using the Wifi for streaming TV from the internet and getting a reasonable signal for ordinary purposes was very hit and miss.

Site is near to a major road and there is some traffic noise throughout the night but you get used to it.

Reviewer: Axlehurn 3 reviews from this member

 Excellent site, with easy access from all directions around Dublin. Site is spacious and pitched generally separated by low hedges and mostly hard standing. Each pitch has water, electricity and grey water disposal. Staff are helpful and friendly, and the facilities are clean and well maintained considering that this generally a busy site. This is the perfect place as a first and last stop on an Ireland trip as it is only 30 minutes from the ferry terminals. We use this site every time we go to Ireland
