Why stay here ...
Set on the Atlantic coast at the edge of County Clare, this site is popular for its stunning coastline walks. Pitches are largely hardstanding and well-appointed with plenty of space to ensure outfits aren’t cramped, and there’s a shop to stock up on essentials.
Nearby Doolin has a range of shops, restaurants and pubs where a hearty meal and a pint of Guinness can be enjoyed along with traditional Irish music. Just a short walk away are the frequent ferries to the sparsely inhabited Aran islands.
There is plenty to see and do in this beautiful part of Ireland. The cliffs of Moher offer spectacular views of the coast and are home to many species of birds, making them ideal for walkers and ornithologists. The natural splendour of Doolin Cave is also within easy reach.

Our check in experience here was not very welcoming.The young man at reception queried whether we had paid in advance (we had booked through the Club's travel service) and when I produced our confirmation he queried the amount we had paid until he realised it was quoted in sterling not euros. He was then not particularly helpful in finding us a suitable pitch. This is a fairly large site, rather impersonal site in a location exposed to the strong Atlantic winds which blew throughout most of our 4 night stay. It is clean and tidy with roomy, level hardstanding pitches and plenty of toilets and showers which were kept adequately clean. The whole site WiFi is a bit of a joke. The nearby beach is pebbles and rock and displays a sign stating that swimming there is very dangerous. To the rear of the site is rather barren moorland. Doolin itself is a quaint little village less than a mile away. It is a fairly easy walk there with a footpath for most of the way. My wife was able to use her mobility scooter. There are a few shops mainly selling souvenirs and wool products from the nearby Aran islands. There are 3 pubs, we visited the nearest on a Saturday evening when it was very busy but had a good atmosphere and plenty of American and German tourists. The site is in a convenient location for visiting this part of Ireland but not one that we will return to.
