Reviewer: Gbrownhill 10 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for 5 nights. A nice touring site split up into uniformed marked pitches, with wigwams and yurts available to hire, with plenty of bays for caravans and motor homes and places for tenters as well.

Clean facilities, showers cost a euro and lasted 5 minutes. A campers kitchen with games room and t. V. Room above the kitchen facilities. The reception sold ice creams and a few bits, but there is no supermarket close by so stock up.

Doolin is a very popular little place with several coach loads of visitors stopping off every day. There were several pubs selling food within walking distance, and live music being played. A harbour with boat trips to the Arran Isles and to visit the Cliffs of Moher, and we even seen dolphins in the harbour. Plenty to see in the local area and the scenery in the Burren is very nice and we visited the Burren Perfumery where they make all their own potions and lotions. We drove nearly all along the Wild Atlantic Way coastline which is very scenic.

A nice campsite to visit with friendly staff always willing to have a five minute chat (especially the American lady that had gone to visit and was still there 20 years later)

 Lovely site that doesn't feel too busy or overcrowded with fantastic owners who really make you feel welcome. Lovely picturesque setting and nicely sheltered from the atlantic winds. Facilities on the site are ok, and cleaned regularly. The showers are 5 mins with a token and were always hot. It's reasonably priced, within walking distance of some very nice pub in a town populated by the friendliest folks you will meet! Loads to do in the area, the Burren, island boat trip, cliffs of Moher, and Doolin cave near by is a must see, what a wow moment. It was such a nice place we stayed there for 4 nights instead of the 1 we had planned!

 Just spent a 4 night break at this site and despite the dreadful weather we loved it. A small site split into several separate sections for tents and caravans. We didn't want electric so was able to pitch where we wanted. As the wind was blowing a gale the site owner advised us on the most sheltered position.

The facilities are clean and tidy with showers for 1 euro for approx 5 mins, free plug sockets for hair dryers. There is a laundry area with washers and dryers. There is a kitchen with fridge freezer and kettle etc and tables and chairs if the weather is bad. There is a large room above the kitchen with comfy chairs and TV and plenty of plug sockets again.

Doolin itself is a small village with 4 pubs, all within walking distance of the site. All serve food and all had live traditional music on each night. There is a cafe but no real proper shop for much food so bring your supplies with you.

We had torrential rain and gale force winds while we were there but still had an amazing time and we will definitely re visit this site 😁😁

 The site reception is just a window so doesn't make you feel very welcome. The shower block was very clean and was 1 euro. Tokens can be bought at reception. It gave you plenty of hot water. There is only one power bollard with lots of different power points for all the caravans. This means you may need a long cable depending on which pitch you are on. If you happen to be on the opposite side then your power cable has to run across the section which means people would have to run over your cable to drive out. Our pitch was on the same side so it didn't bother us.

However, having said that the site in in a good location. The Fitz's pub is only a couple of minutes walk and serves food and live music nightly. Doolin is a funny little place and is split into separate parts with pubs in each. The famous Gus O'Connor's pub is in one of the other parts and is about a 10 minute walk. Again a great pub with food and live music nightly. For such a small village it is very busy with tourists. From here we went to The Cliffs of Moher. The car park fee gives you access to the visitor centre and the cliffs. If you go through the visitor centre and off to the right there is a tower which you can climb but have to pay. Don't bother paying because it's not worth it.

If you walk to the left along the cliffs you will come to a spot that says private property. Most people didn't take any notice and continued walking. I must say we did the same and the view was far better than going the other way. Well worth being a bit naughty! We continued walking to a small castle at the end and took us about 1 hour. You can also get a ferry across to the Aran Isles which comes back via the Cliffs of Moher or you can just do a 1 hour trip to see the cliffs only. We just did the 1 hour trip. Another day we had a drive through The Burrens. This is a large area of unusual rock formations and very interesting. I believe there are many walks that you can do around the area.

All in all we had a great time here and would recommend it.

 Spent three very enjoyable days here. The site is quite busy, good hard-standings and a lovely river side location. Easy walking distance to the local pubs where we sampled traditional music each night.

Would just mention, though, that credit and debit cards are not accepted and the nearest cash machine (ATM) is in Enistimon which is about a 25 minute drive away.

Despite the horrendous weather and gale force winds we would definitely recommend this site, its location and the local area ie The Cliffs of Moher, The Berren and the Aran Islands-to mention just a few.

 We couldn't decide which campsite to stay in at Doolin so we visited Nagels which is near the harbour and we also visited O'Connors. We had a look around both and checked out the facilities and we chose O'Connors over Nagles as we believe it was more sheltered (it was really windy), smaller and less children and dogs running around.

The campsite was basically on farmer's fields and we could set up were we wanted.

Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

The facilities have seen better days and could have being doing with a spruce up. Showers cost one euro so it was a frantic wash in case you were left covered in soap suds and no water, but it lasted longer than I thought.

There was a campers' kitchen which contained a table, chairs, fridge freezer, cookers (operated by token/euro). We only used the kitchen to wash our dishes.

You can also stay for Bed and Breakfast at this site and there was a lovely smell of cooked bacon in the mornings!

There was no shop at this site. We found this site to be quiet at night.
