Delamont Country Park Camping and Caravanning Club is one of the most popular caravan parks in County Down, Northern Ireland. Our park is open from March to November, and is open for use by motorhomes, touring campervans, and tents. Serviced pitches are also available, providing electricity hook-ups to our guests.
We also offer a number of on-site conveniences to ensure your stay is as comfortable and as stress-free as possible, including laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal facilities, while there is park-wide Wi-Fi access that you can use as much as you wish.
Our park is close to the south shores of Strangford Lough and is in the middle of Delamont Country Park, offering you immediate access to miles of open space for you to explore. Pets are welcome at our park, too, so why not bring them along to enjoy this beautiful part of Northern Ireland. Those staying at Delamont Country Park Camping and Caravanning Club can enjoy free entry into the surrounding park and its attractions, which include an adventure playground with a mini-fortress for children to enjoy, a miniature railway, and mature woodlands that give an idyllic and relaxing experience to anyone who enjoys a relaxing meander.
Strangford Lough itself is a magnet for birdwatchers, while water sports can also be enjoyed in this location. Ten miles to the south you’ll find the Irish Sea coastline, with the famous Tyrella Beach also offering a range of activities. Many of the coastal towns also offer sea fishing trips, as well as activities like sailing and windsurfing, and you can also decide to go swimming yourself, although if you’re not a fan of the sea yourself you could always find comfort in one of the many beachfront seafood restaurants and enjoy a fish dish as fresh as they come.
We are also close to Mourne Heritage Trust, which you can explore yourself or use an expert guide who will take you around the area and inform you of the history and significance of each location. A half hour drive will take you into Belfast, a beautiful city that again offers guided tours, although it is often best discovered by simply going there and looking around for yourself.
Whether you want to enjoy the green surroundings of Delamont Country Park Camping and Caravanning Club, head south to the stunning coastline, or explore Belfast and the surrounding towns, you’ll find something for all tastes when you choose to stay at our park, definitely worth the journey across the Irish Sea or from the Irish mainland!

Firstly may I say that on paper this site is good, facilities are very clean (so much so that there is no access to the toilets or showers for 1 1/2 hours every day while they are cleaned, right around checkout time as well so the alternative single disabled toilet ends up with a line of people outside all wanting to freshen up before they leave, I ended up deciding to leave it and had to endure a 2 hour drive home with my legs crossed, surely this is not safe). Also the grounds are immaculately kept with not so much as a dandilion to be found. Access to the park and loch are very good with plenty top do for families and couples.
However, maybe this is true of all caravan club parks, it's my first time visiting one in a lifetime of touring, it seems to me that the rules which are designed to make the park a better, safer experince for everyne should be replaced with one big sign on the gate that just says "no fun allowed". The managers, while being very pleasant, make it all too clear what is expected from you, where you can go, how you have to site your unit. Also The park was nowhere near full when we arrived and being a bit of a fool I had only brought a 10m hook up lead, yes I know it's silly in this day and age but it was a mistake, so having been shown to a plot 2 pitches away from the nearest hook up by the manager and me explaining what I had done I was basically told tough luck, no you can't park your van nose in so the lead will reach, thats against the rules, no we can't move you to another pitch even though the next one is available and closer to a post, it's your fault, you didn't read the rules, either spend the night in the dark or buy a new lead!
Hmm, would I recommend the site, Well the park is well kept and has good facilities (hence the 4 stars) but as I said it is about as much fun staying there as it is spending a weekend counting sheep in a small village outside of Berlin with an accountant called Herman, so It's your call!

This is without doubt one of the very best sites in Northern Ireland. Easy to find, with excellent road access from all directions, a superbly maintained site; extremely clean and well looked after. Most pitches are on the level with electricity, water and waste water hook ups. We have been there every year for the last 5 years, sometimes as much as three times in any one year and absolutely love it!
The site is a very good place from which to tour most of Northern Ireland with many roads being motorways or dual carriageways. It is an excellent site both for family holidays, couples and retired folk. There are plenty of interesting things to do for everyone's needs. We have always found the campsite staff to be most helpful and friendly.
This is most definitely a five star plus campsite and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

We go to Delamont regularly throughout the year from it opens in March until it closes in October/November. It is the best site by far in Northern Ireland with spotless facilities and the staff who are currently there are extremely friendly and helpful with no issue with regards to staying on past 12 noon at no extra charge. Highly recommended.
