Just wow!!! "Our second only stay in our camper and we thought the campsite the night before was lovely but this was outstanding. In an area of already natural beauty, this site sits on a craggy hillside with quirky nooks and crannies all over in which to park a camper, caravan or pitch a tent. Lovely helpful lady at reception, spotlessly clean amenities, a very helpful man onsite (and this was late on sunday evening) who sourced a fuse for us when one of ours blew. A wonderful safe place for children and dogs welcome. Lovely stony little cove for swimming. We didnt eat in the restaurant/cafe but it looked really nice. Handy little shop which again was open after 9.30pm on a sunday evening. Small walk to derrynane hotel which was well worth a visit for food. Cant recommend this place enough. I'd say practically every pitch there has some kind of sea view. Would be a great base for derrynane, valentia etc. Will definitely be back." Date of stay: July 2019 Travelled with family
4 nights family camping "Campsite here is extensive but is sits nicely into the rocky shoreline. Facilities are spotless. Not loud at night. Near to the excellent Derrynane beach and Derrynane house. Lovely food in several places nearby." Date of stay: July 201
