What a Find

A trip to Ireland, searching for somewhere to stay  near enough to The Giants Causeway but easy enough to go onward to Donegal, was a challenge. Then we found Hillfoot, exactly what it says, at the foot of the hill. Gorgeous spot, Mervyn came to welcome us as did Ben the do. What a gent, always willing to help, a mine of useful information on where to go and always around to make sure there was enough hot water for the showers and that everything was spick and span. We arrived 25th May for 4 nights and were blessed with glorious weather for our trip to see the Giants Causeway and Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge. it was 25 miles or so but we knew that when we booked. We also managed to get to Kinbane that day and also The Dark Hedges apparently featured in Game of Thrones which we've never watched but it was worth finding these trees, even though there had been some storm damage to them. We also managed to climb The Hill, cheating a bit as theres a car park near the top, but it gives wonderful views all around and with binoculars or a good zoom on your camera you can pick out the site easily. It was a bank holiday weekend while we were there which is why I've only given a 4  for peace and tranquility. The site became very full and also the camping field, but it was just families enjoying themselves in the good weather and the facilities remained spotless. Everything there for a tiny site, even a little museum which was so interesting. And laundry facilities with an honesty box.  Thoroughly recommended, i don't suppose we will ever go back that way but if we did i know where we would stay. As the previous review says "A little gem" Thankyou to Mervyn and Liz and Ben for making our stay so enjoyable
