This is an great place to get away & chill its in Waterford but very close to Clonmel Co Tipperary.

Toilet & Shower block a bit dated but VERY clean as is the campers kitchen.

Hard stands & Grass pitches with  & without electric hook up, waer points beside the bins which are throughout the site.

€29 2 adults 3 children & electric hook up showers FREE :)

Things to do.... RELAX or if you are into walking/hiking go for it. A short drive to Clonmel you have everything a town has and the Blue Way is a walk, cycle & boat way from Clonmel to Carrick on Suir


All in all a nice campsite BUT BEWARE bring migi creams to repel or ease the pain

Aaron
Happy Camping

Stayed here with her good self for 2 nights last weekend. This was our last planned caravan trip of '22. Cost of both nights with EHU was €48. Met by the reception committee on arrival with an approving sniff ( Kevin the site cocker spaniel!). He was followed by Niall the site owner who booked us in hassle free. We stayed on one of the hard stands, there is about 6 or 7 of these stands. There is ample room for tents. Bring a long lead as not all spaces are near a hook up, but there are numerous around the site, same with water points and bins.

This is a very rustic site. It may not be to everyones taste. however, it is central to Clonmel and a short hop into Carrick on suir. The ICCC were having a Leinster Branch rally and there were a few other units present, all in all it was quiet. The Sheebeen is also on site serving bottled beers, soft drinks and a cosy fire. all drinks reasonably priced.

Facilities were certainly dated, but functional and the showers, which were included in the price were powerful and hot. There was Black and Grey water disposable areas. The black water area needed TLC however.

The site is known for Midgies, but at this time of year we had minimal issues with them.

Things to do.... as Aaron has already stated RELAX! there are countless walks in the immediate area, and Niall is a mind of info to guide you onto the appropriate tracks. Lough Mohra is a glacier lake tucked in the hills and well worth the hike. We cycled the Suir Blueway from Clonmel into Carrick and it was fantastic. Its 20kms each way and if its a fine day it is brilliant. Eating and drinking was catered for in Clonmel.

Now, it is a fair climb from Clonmel up to the site, and I was told of some campers burning through clutches when towing heavy caravans. If travelling from the Dublin side your Satnav will try send you via the 1st left off the Bulmers Roundabout. This is a savage narrow road with a steep gradient, and the locals seem to enjoy flying along the narrow roads that lead to the site, ( yes, we had a near miss!) Instead, go straight tru the roundabout heading for Clonmel town and then set the Satnav for Clonmel Golf Club. This is a slightly longer way but the gradient is easier to negotiate. 

All in all its a great site, but if its 4 star your looking for, forget it.  It may not be to everyones taste, but fortunatley for us, it was a very pleasant stay and we will return. 
if it cant be fixed with a hammer, its an electrical fault......
