Alan Rogers Review
Opened in 2011 and set on a family run farm, this small site is conveniently situated for the Dublin to Limerick M7 motorway. It is less than 15 km. from the Slieve Bloom mountains, a Mecca for walkers, and 6 km. from the centre of Portlaoise. There are seven touring pitches with hardstanding, 16A electricity and water set to one edge of a camping field. Children can enjoy farm animals such as sheep, goats, chickens and pigs, and perhaps help feed lambs, and find eggs (even chocolate ones at Easter). There is some distant noise from the motorway, and mainline trains pass behind the farm. It would make a good stopover between Dublin and Cork or Limerick.
Local activities include karting, angling, horse-drawn caravans and guided walks in the Slieve Bloom mountains.
A new timber-clad toilet block is tiled and heated, and has three family rooms with WC and shower. One also has a bath and is equipped for disabled visitors. Laundry room. Kitchen/lounge with cooking and dishwashing facilities, satellite TV, extensive library, comfortable seating and table tennis. Motorcaravan services.
