Alan Rogers Review

This is an ideal location for those seeking a real Irish village experience in a ‘value for money’ park. Small, unpretentious and family run, it is located in Belcarra, a regular winner of the Tidiest Mayo Village award. Nestling at the foot of a wooded drumlin, it is surrounded by rolling hills and quiet roads which offer an away from it all feeling, yet Castlebar, the county’s largest town, is only an 8 km. drive. On the pleasant 1.5-acre park, the 20 unmarked touring pitches, 15 with electric hook-up (13A Europlug), are on flat ground enclosed by ranch fencing and shaded in parts by trees.

An additional novel idea at Carra are eight horse-drawn caravans for hire. Also of interest are the talks that the owner, Pat, and her daughter, Deirdre, give on the area. There are recommended walks and maps provided. New to the area is the National Museum of Country Life at Turlough (8 km) which is now a super attraction.


The new toilet block has well equipped showers (€ 1). En-suite facility for disabled visitors. Combined kitchen with fridge/freezer, sink, table, chairs, washing machine and dryer. Comfortable lounge with TV, books and magazines located at reception. Horse-drawn caravans for hire.
