Back in Mannix Point for our first trip of the year. We had a leaving cert in the house so this was the earliest we could get away. I've had a few favourite sites over the years but I think I have settled on this one.
We have a couple of older kids who still come with us and I had included them as adults when I booked. When I was checking in I was told that as long as they were with us they were children and I was charged the children's rate. It was a nice surprise when some sites charge full adult rate when they get to 14.
The pitch I was allocated was a bit small for the awning so I went back up to reception and was immediately given a different one. This was perfect, good size, level and with water on the pitch so I was able to connect the hose to the aquaroll for constant water. We have a fantastic view it over the bay and the islands.
There is so much to do and see around here that every time we come back it is different. Fantastic beaches, stone forts, Kerry cliffs, Valentia, museums and visitor centres.
It is great to see some normality again, all that is missing is the music in the sitting room in the evening and hopefully that will be back soon. There are tents on every available patch of grass and it's nice to see that they are still as welcome here as ever with a lot of sites having reduced tent capacity this year.
It's a sign of a good site that it is better every time you come and that is certainly the case with Mannix Point.
