Barleycove Holiday Park is a wonderful holiday park found on the Mizen peninsula in West Cork, Ireland, open from late May or early June to the end of September every year. The park has a range of modern two and three bedroom static holiday caravans available for hire, as well as welcoming guests with touring caravans and tents.
Both grass and hard standing pitches are available at Barleycove Holiday Park while electric hook ups are available on both types of pitch.
There are two-bedroom and three-bedroom holiday caravans you can rent, and they come with sets of cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils, duvets and duvet covers and pillows. Please take your own sheets, pillowcases and towels.
Guests don’t need to venture from Barleycove Holiday Park looking for activities if they don’t wish to, either. Activities available on the site include tennis, basketball, and pitch and putt golf. There is also a games room that is great for the whole family, and a children’s playground perfect for little ones looking to run off their energy reserves.
The park is one of the most remote in all of Ireland, meaning that it is best suited to guests not looking for activities and attractions in lively towns and cities, as the nearest main city, Cork, is a two-hour drive away.
Guests who like to get away from it all will love their time at Barleycove Holiday Park. It's close to Mizen Head, the furthest south-westerly tip of Ireland, which has a visitor centre. Between the park, Crookhaven, and the miles of stunning Atlantic coastline and countryside, there is plenty for guests to see, do, and fall in love with.
Barleycove Holiday Park is an amazing location for any family looking for quiet and relaxing tent and caravan holidays in the far south-west corner of Ireland. There is much to do on the park itself while the surrounding area offers some of the most peaceful and tranquil surroundings found anywhere in Ireland.
While there is plenty to do on-site the surrounding area is also rich with family friendly activities. The park overlooks the local beach and here guests will find opportunities to relax on the golden sands as well as enjoy a range of water sports and other activities. The coastline is largely rugged and unspoiled and is great for walking and cycling. Visit the sandy beach at Cockle Strand and enjoy the scenic views down to Crookhaven Harbour. The village of Crookhaven has a number of quirky shops, cafés, and pubs, while local fishermen are often happy to take tourists out into the North Atlantic with them on fishing trips. Near Crookhaven is Galley cove, from which you can see Fastnet rock, famous the world over as part of the BBC's Shipping Forecast.
