This pleasant, level park occupies over seven hectares on both banks of the pretty Avonmore River near the small town of Rathdrum. It has 110 pitches arranged around a boating pond. The pitches are mostly concrete hardstandings with a few on grass. All have 16A Europlugs and close access to a water tap and waste drainage. Across a fine footbridge is a large, flat area for tents – most of them used by families at holiday time. This site now boasts one of the finest adventure play areas in Ireland. Recent additions are archery, digital paintballing and crazy golf.
There are rowing boats and canoes for hire on the park’s shallow lake, gentle water flumes, chutes and an impressive array of play equipment. Rathdrum’s reputation for picturesque houses, pubs and restaurants makes it a popular location for film shoots. Nearby are the Wicklow Mountains, Powerscourt House, Glendalough, the Meeting of the Waters and the Vale of Avoca. The Georgian city of Dublin is about 50 kilometres by road or rail (station in Rathdrum).
