Enquire Now You enquired

Moat Farm Caravan and Camping Park is a small, quiet, select, family run touring park, set in a tranquil rural setting in the south of Ireland. The campsite is just one minute's walk from the village, in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. It is within easy reach of Dublin and Rosslare and is ideal for relaxing or to use as a base for touring, cycling, hill walking, mountain climbing and many other outdoor pursuits.

The campsite itself is a modern, fully equipped park. Unusually for a campsite in Southern Ireland, it offers free hot water for showers and dishwashing, plus laundry facilities, a campers' kitchen, a barbecue area, TV room and facilities for the disabled. You will need to get the key code for the barriers and for the washrooms from your hosts Nuala and Edward Allen.

This makes a great campsite base if you enjoy camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Southern Ireland, especially if you like golf, fishing, pony trekking and walking.

Visit Ireland's Table Mountain, Church Mountain and Kildare. Head off to see horse races at Punchestown, Naas and the Curragh Race courses. Above all, Nuala Allen recommends that you should visit the Japanese Gardens, Glendalough and Russborough House, which are all highly popular with her guests.

Moat Farm can make a great nightstop if you've been visiting Southern Ireland and the West of Ireland and you're now on your way to catch a ferry from Dublin. It takes about 70 minutes to drive to the port via the N4, N7 and N81. It's also just 90 minutes to Rosslare or Wexford if you take the N80 and N81.

Moat Farm Caravan and Camping Park welcomes rallies and has a loyal following of clubs who return year after year to hold their rallies in the separate field.

Nuala Allen is a warm and friendly campsite owner and she loves to keep Moat Farm in a tidy but natural state, so it's a haven for wildlife.

Niceo to Physcho on 3 seconds. I too was a regular visitor here from Mar this yr until today. The owner is unstable and so suspect a serious drink problem. I was screamed at in the park today and very clearly told that I needn't think I was a regular (stayed 8 times since March and paid €200 for storage)... She also stated that she wasn't interested in anyone except her regulars. Tourists avoid at all costs... I hope she gets the help she clearly needs and ceases trading so that people visiting do not think her unwelcome unbalanced behaviour is the norm...

I was a regular visitor to moat farm but i was forced not to return by the treatment i have received while being on the site. It has come to my attention that i'm not the only person to have being on the end of these outbursts and i will be never returning to moat farm again
