Alan Rogers Review

This is a park offering a taste of island life and the opportunity to relax in dramatic, scenic surroundings. Achill, Ireland’s largest island, is 24 km. long and 19 km. wide and is connected to the mainland by a bridge. The wide open site is situated beside the Blue Flag beach near Keel village. Although there are static holiday mobile homes on this site, the 84 touring pitches are kept separate. There are 50 pitches with hardstanding and some are located at the perimeter fence overlooking the beach. Although sand based, the ground is firm and level. Roads are tarmac and there is direct access to the beach which is supervised by lifeguards.

Occasionally a traditional music evening is organised on the site. Whilst a treat in store for visitors is the natural beauty of Achill, also worth seeing are Kildownet Castle, the Slievemore deserted village and the Seal Caves.


Two modern toilet blocks serve the site, one at the entrance gate beside reception and the other in a central position. Heated facilities include WCs, washbasins and hot showers (on payment). Hairdryers. Laundry with irons and ironing boards. En-suite facilities for disabled visitors at reception block. Campers’ kitchen and dining room. Motorhome services. Play area. TV/games room. Watersports enthusiasts can enjoy surfing, kite surfing, canoeing and board sailing on Keel Strand and Lough. Fishing trips can be arranged. WiFi throughout (charged).
