On arrival this site didn't look to inviting however it was a very good site.

Great location for the beech shops and entertainment all about a 7min walk at the end of the camp site.

We paid €27 for a unit, 2 adults, electric hook up and the car.

Its a very large park mostly filled with caravans but plenty of room for tents & motorhomes as well.

Worth a visit.

Strandhill, another family favourite.

The campsite:
Large site with sections for motorhomes and another for tents as well as hard pitches. Some nice secluded pitches for tents hidden around the park too.
€20 deposit required for the key/fob for access to toilets and through barriers at entrance. When checking in they'll direct you to your spot using the CCTV screens in reception.
Toilets old but cleaned regularly, motorhome service point and black waste disposal available. Showers good, need tokens.
Reception block has small games and TV room, internet access available.
Childrens playground just outside the entrance including zip line.

The area:
Sand dunes. The kids love it, they disappear for ages and come back when hungry.
For food, breakfast/lunch in Shells Cafe is a must do. Homemade ice cream and crepes etc in Ma Johnsons is perfect for the kids. Later have great pizza in the Strand Bar, where there is usually music on most weekend nights in season.
Surfing is a big draw here, surf school classes available. The beach is not safe for swimming though, but take the walk to Killaspugbrone ruined church (north along the beach, around the airport, one of the signposted walks) and just after this is a lovely beach which is safe.
If you are feeling fit, walk up Knocknarea to Queen Maeves Grave, there is a new walk lined/paved with railway sleepers which lead up, entrance across the road from the rugby club, and later recover in the Seaweed baths back down at the beach front.
On Sundays there is the Strandhill Peoples Market at the airport with a good number of stalls with locally produced goods/crafts, it's indoor too so great if the weather isn't the best.

We last stayed at the end of September 2019, think the cost was €32/night for motorhome, 2 adults, 3 children, 1 dog, EHU. They don't take bookings, so get there early for busy weekends.
