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.
