Glen of Aherlow

We booked this site during the pandemic. At the time of our stay the Republic had not fully opened but the facilities block was open with the exception of the recreation and tv room. Restaurants and cafes etc with outdoor dining were I bit hard to find during this time. The site is a bit isolated with the nearest shop being about 7 miles. The weather just made it. No Mediterranean or far flung holidays due to COVID but who needs that when you have a heatwave of around 30deg c.
Stayed here in March and what a clean tidy site. George worked all day cutting grass and making sure everything was OK. Pitches had water and EHU's a few slope but mostly level. Close to Tipperary and a good place for walking to the pub which had a Information place at the rear. Fantastic views of the mountains from your pitch.
A lovely, quiet site with stunning scenery and great walks. Showers and WiFi are free. Even if the Reception building appears to be closed, the staff appear within seconds and are extremely helpful. The Aherlow House Hotel is about a twenty minute walk up the hill behind the site - with gorgeous views and a great menu. Everyone is really friendly - there was a wedding on when we were there, but there was still plenty of space, great service and food, and we were even given wedding cake after our meal. There is also a small pub (‘The Coach Road Inn’) just a short stroll from the site entrance. It might look closed from the outside, but just push open the small red door to the left of the building (as you’re looking at it) and it’s really friendly. We sat beside a nice little open fire - even in July.
Wife and I stayed here overnight in June and what a lovely site it is. Pitches are well spaced and generous in size while the views are gorgeous. There's no play area or other "entertainments" which suits us fine. The toilet/wash block is clean and very modern. Like all the sites we stayed on in Ireland, there's free wi-fi.
Just returned from spending 6 nights at this excellent site which is situated in a wonderful part of Ireland. Brilliant for walking & cycling or if you just want some peace and quiet then this is the place for you. Great facilities, free showers and Wifi and very friendly and helpful staff. Well worth a visit and we look forward to returning in the future.
This was our last stop on a four week tour of Southern Ireland and we were so glad we had booked it. A beautiful site with a fantastic view of the Galtee Mountains and lovely woodland walks up behind the site. Very friendly and helpful owners and the site is immaculate. Tipperary town is not very exciting but Cashel and Cahir neither of which are far away have plenty of interest and Cahir has a lovely river walk.
This is truly a wonderful site, in beautiful surrounds with plenty of space. The nicest thing was No Rules about how you parked your van, car, awning. Toilet block never closed but was immaculately clean, I think the Leprechauns did the cleaning overnight. When busy I would imagine showering would take time as there are only 2 cubicles - they could do with a stool or similar as you have nowhere to put your stuff expect on the floor which is not really recommended, but good strong shower with loads of nice hot water. George was so helpful right from the start of our visit and we were there for 2 weeks. Fantastic place to be able to travel further afield. Truthfully can't fault it at all. We will certainly be going back

Our visit came towards the end of our holiday and we were in the mood for relaxing and as it so happened this was the right place at the right time. The area is idyllic and beautiful (photo 1), but don’t be fooled Tipperary town does not match it so don’t put that on your ‘bucket list’. We arrived at reception (photo 2) and received a warm welcome and explanation to the facilities of the site and after parking up we had a look around before deciding on a grass pitch (photo 3) with a lovely view from the awning (photo 4). The hard standing pitches (photo 5) are well placed too. There is a brand new looking amenities block that houses a games room, TV room, campers kitchen, laundrette (with reasonable prices - €3 for a wash and €1 for tumble dry), toilets and showers. The three cubicles and two showers might struggle to cope with high season demand but both (photos 6 and 7) are impeccably clean (although the toilets would benefit from a quick fill flush) and the showers are free with a plentiful hot water to enjoy. A surprising added bonus was the free Wi-Fi that extended to each individual site with a strong signal, which is just as well, as being in a valley the television signal is not great. Isn’t television download just great. There is no on-site shop, so get supplies in before you arrive, but there is a quaint Irish pub just 500 yards down the road! This is a really lovely quiet pleasant site, well looked after and maintained and one that we most definitely will be looking forward to returning to.
As its name suggests the site is situated in the beautiful Glen of Aherlow. It is excellently maintained by its friendly and obliging owners with clean facilities and a constant supply of hot water in the toilets and showers. I contacted the site a week before our arrival as we were arriving on the Rosslare ferry at 6.30am. The owner told me to come straight to the site and a pitch would be available from 9am at the latest. As well as its beautiful location the site is only a short drive from Tipperary and also has a friendly local pub a few minutes walk from the entrance. We only stayed 2 nights as we were using the site as a stop off on our way to the west coast. We intend to return for longer next year to explore this lesser known but beautiful part of Ireland.
We stayed here for 3 nights mid week in July 2016. but it was the best site we have stayed on....peaceful, clean and in a fabulous location. Wardens are extremely helpful. They sell freshly baked bread which was brilliant. Plenty of walking and cycling in the area. We stayed again for 1 night over the Bank Holiday and expected it to be crammed with tents, it was busier but well organised and still as peaceful and clean. A true haven in Ireland. We hope to return.
