I have been coming to this camping park for decades at this stage and still find it wonderful. It is well planned out and the landscaping is both beautiful and true to the area. The toilet and kitchen facilities are always immaculate. The service providers are very friendly, facilitating and knowledgeable about where to eat and things to do. Will definitely be back!

Extremely disappointed, Campers and tourers cramped together no privacy. Owners have a lot to learn especially with how they treat their customers!!park itself just average... Would not recommend at all !!

Easily one of the worst campsites I have ever visited! There is an unfenced building site, gas bottles strewn about, a toilet block infested with moths and other insects and the flooring in the shower cubicles is cracked and can cause injury. There is an unfenced sewerage treatment plant.

A very dilapidated unappealing site. Concrete pitches covered in cracks and rubble. Grass overgrown and full of weeds. Very few facilities. Toilets/showers absolutely horrible. I don't know how they have the nerve to charge for this facility. The site is not easily accessible to Spiddal as it is up a long steep road. If there had been any view over Galway bay this might have been one saving grace, but the only view you will have is of what looks like a building site.
