Good for families

Great site for the Cliffs of Moher

We stayed at Nagle’s Doolin for three nights in August and were offered the choice of any pitch. There were plenty of hardstandings with water, drainage and electric hook-up and immaculate grass adjacent to them. We chose one at the outer perimeter by a wall, as we thought it might be more sheltered there (it wasn’t!). We had a distant sea view, but for the best views you probably need to choose a grass pitch by the wall of the Doolin Pier car park. This is a busy site with lots of families. In the early evening the children’s play area is extremely popular, and children feel safe to cycle, scoot and skate all around the site. Showers cost €1 and are located in the main shower/toilet block - this is closed between 10pm and 7.30am, however there are some toilets available 24/7. The site is at Doolin Pier - ideal for ferry trips - and it is a fairly short walk to the old village, partly on pavement and partly along a busy and narrow country road. The road and village can get quite congested with traffic, including coaches and minibuses. The village is extremely pretty, and has quaint shops and cafes. We called in at Gus O’Connor’s pub a couple of times, and found it to be very friendly. The Cliffs of Moher are easily accessible to walk to, and offer stunning views. One day we walked over 7.5 miles from the campsite, along the cliffs and to the visitor centre, where we caught a shuttle bus (the ‘Paddywagon - a bright green minibus) back to Doolin - this cost €6 per person. Apparently there is also a bus service to and from the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre - this may be less frequent, and we heard that it cost €3.20 each way. The campsite WiFi is free but we found it to be intermittent. This is a good site with beautiful scenery. But be ready for rapid changes in weather - it was always wild and windy, but it went from sunny to dark grey skies / heavy rain (and back again) frequently and very quickly.
