We received a warm and friendly welcome, and all amenities were pointed out as we were shown to our reserved pitch - a slightly sloping long hard standing with a nice view of the sea in the distance. The site has a really interesting layout - mainly long concrete hardstanding pitches (cars and caravans parked end on), and beautifully maintained grass spaces in between each. The pitches are set at angles to each other so the site feels less ‘regimented’ in layout than some sites. At quiet times it feels really relaxed and spacious - however we arrived in the middle of the August bank holiday weekend when the site was incredibly busy, with all designated pitches full, and pretty much every grass space between hardstandings also filled with extra units. In fairness, people managed well in these more crowded conditions, and the site was completely silent from 11pm. Dogs were left unattended in a couple of caravans so there was some barking in the evening. Showers cost €1 and there is free WiFi, although we found this to be a bit patchy and unreliable (maybe because it was such a busy time?). We didn’t go to the hotel next door, but it did look really nice. We found the nearby Ashes pub to be lively and welcoming, with a good atmosphere. They also had live music each evening from 9.30pm. You can have a pleasant stroll from the site, down a country lane, along the beach, then back up to the village, pick up a bit of shopping and have a drink on the way back into the site. Really relaxing.

We spent eight nights at Glenross at the end of August when the site was relatively quiet. Glenross is perfectly positioned - on the ring of Kerry, close to Glenbeigh village with all its amenities and stunning Rossbeigh beach. Nearly all the pitches have views across to the Dingle peninsula and within a couple of hundred metres of the site gates there is a pub with regular live music and excellent food. The facilities were scrupulously clean and the staff friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. In short, our stay there was perfect - even the weather was fine! We can thoroughly recommend this site to anyone planning a visit to the Ring of Kerry.
