Reviewer: Glossopwhite 33 reviews from this member

 Stayed here just before the end of the season, the site was quiet and we had a choice of pitches.

There are 2 touring fields, both with hardstanding pitches, hook up points and water taps. However the fields were surrounded by hedges restricting the views, which from the lane running alongside the pitch were nice.

The facilities are locked and for a 10 euro deposit you receive a key for these and also a key for the hook up and security barrier. As it was low season we felt as though a locked toilet block was unnecessary.

The site advised wifi available, we tried to use this and it requested payment by paypal (fine, we donít mind paying for wifi), however, due to not being connected to the internet the paypal website wouldnít work to allow payment!

The beach is a couple of minutes walk from the end of the site through a key coded gate, the code is provided upon check in. The beach is dog friendly, but although the website advises this stretches for 20k it is interested by streams/rivers, so you may get wet feet, especially if going for a run.

Connors Pass provided lovely views as does the Slea Head drive from Dingle and was well worth the drive.

 This is a fantastic location, right on the beach, you actually walk from the site onto it. The site has lots of statics and only allows upto 4 man tents which is a bit restrictive luckily we had one with us.

The site has plenty of facilities, At The Anchor, there is a amenity block with toilets, showers, a TV room, games room, laundry facilities and space for rinsing wet suits. There is also a camperís kitchen area.

For the youngest guests, there is a play area with safe pieces of equipment and a sandpit. WiFi is also available but costs to connect, the nearest village Castlegregory is 10 mins away.

There is plenty to do in the area, visit Dingle and see the resident Dolphin Fungi, take a drive over Conor Pass the highest in Ireland. Just up from the site is a water sport area for Ä20 children get to swim, pedal boat, trampoline in the sea, Kayaking all supervised it was great.

Great site but would be better if larger tents were allowed.

 We stayed here for a couple of days just before it was due to close for the winter.

The facilities were good an clean although having key to enter each facility was sometimes inconvenient especially when the toilets are separate from the showers.

The Wi Fi was free and we much appreciated this. The staff were friendly and there were two good play plots for kids. It is right next to a beach although there are no views because it is sheltered by dunes. The beach is a beautiful long sandy stretch. It was marvellous for our dog because in several sites in Ireland we had to go a long way before we could let our dog off the lead. Here it was so relaxing. Thoroughly recommend this site

 Another very professionally run site. It mostly hosts static units, but there are a reasonable number of hard-standing pitches in a separate area for touring units, all close to the facilities.

It's a secure site with security barriers and CCTV, but it's a bit off-the-beaten-track, making the security a surprise.

It's little out of the way, so any evening entertainment is a fair bit away, but it's a good quiet stop-off point before heading further into the Dingle peninsula, which only has one other campsite if I remember correctly.

Bathroom facilities are acceptable, nothing to write home about.

As already said, there's a gate which leads out to the beach. Even though we stayed on the most rain-sodden day, it's easy to see this is a stunning beach with views back towards Tralee.

Reviewer: Jeff + Sharon M 19 reviews from this member

 Have stayed here a few times.

Very well run site. Facilities are kept really clean and are very good.

There are clothes lines at the back of the toilet block, which is a nice touch.

There is a gate at the edge of the park which backs onto the sand dunes. This leads to a path that takes you straight onto the beach. It is locked at night.

The owners keep a close eye on everything, with the result that is is quiet at night.

The access roads to the site are very narrow, so you need to be careful.

There is a small village about 5 mins drive which has a very good Spar supermarket. The nearest big town is Trallee, which is about 10 miles away.

This site is situated on the road which leads to Dingle and is a very scenic drive.

Would highly recommend it.
