A few years ago on this forum Beirnes came in for some bad reviews when around 8 or 10 forum members met here for a get together.. Within a year the then owner joined the forum to state what was said was totally unfounded..

However the points made were proven to be true and since then Bernies has made some improvements they even featured on an RTE TV show which helps businesses improve in order to stay afloat.

Some forum members have returned over the years and found with the exception of a new glamping and kids play area not much had changed..

We took a trip to Bernies on our World Tour Of Ireland and yet again we were bitterly dissapointed....

Firstly we were greeted by an automatic gate and a need to call some one twice to open it..

The sign on the gate said "register in the pub" we couldnt the pub dosent open till 8pm this was at 2pm...

After getting on site hooking up and settling in I went to check out one of the main problems all those years ago The Loo Block..

Nothing had changed there, they were a little
cleaner but the gents still had a smell however the ladies loo was clean. In saying that the builders were on site building what looked like new showers...

There is no shop on site, yet gas is available for purchase in the pub which as we said doesn't open till 8pm.

One of the reasons Mrs B wanted to stay here was to walk around the marina however like the glamping area this was strictly off limits to regular campers.

While the site advertise Gourmet Food Available it fails to mention that it is served on Weekends only.

We paid €24 for our night and it was NOT WORTH IT...

Beirnes seem to be more into their glamping tents and new camping pods and its sad to say the camp site is suffering.....

This is a beautiful location and has loads going for it but alas it has a long way to go....
