Beautiful natural unspoiled spot. "Just home from our first trip in the Midlands at Lough Ree East camp site. ( Ballykeeran ) .Even with the weather storms we had a fantastic time. Our tent held up brilliantly in the lightning thunder and rain without any leaks thank God. It's beautiful there on the lake. We pitched up next to a brook under the trees and had visiting ducks and swans daily . Quiet and spotless and well kept site. Owner gave us a fabulous warm welcome and let us pick our own pitch. We wanted electric and he organised an extra long cable for us so we could pitch up on a picturesque spot by the brook. So helpful. We hired a boat and took it out on the amazing Lough Ree for the day . The kitchen is basic. But has fridge , microwave and kettle and plenty hot water always . Showers €1 for seven mins. Pool table room also. Swings for kids . Five mins from Athlone for plenty shops/ needs etc. Would highly recommend this spot and we will return. A nice spot for quiet camping for nature lovers and families. Tents are separate area to campervans and caravans mainly . I'd happily recommend it to all campers and we look forward to returning again." Date of stay: August 2019 Travelled with family
Lovely campsite "Stayed at Lough Ree for 2 nights in a tent (also called Ballykeeran Camping). Really lovely campsite on a lake and a nice easy drive from Dublin. Cost for 2 adults & 4 children in a large tent was €78. The showers are €1 for 7 mins which is plenty of time and they were clean. Always plenty of hot water in the campers kitchen area. We used this as a base for Bay Sports which was just a short drive away. Had a drink in the local pub "Dog & Duck" which is just a short walk away. We will definitely be returning to this campsite."
