Alan Rogers Review

This lovely site is set on a grassy hill overlooking the valley of the River Nore, with a woodland setting behind. Situated on a working farm, it offers 70 touring pitches, 60 of which have 6A electricity. There is an additional area for tents, four wooden lodges and four mobile homes to rent. The owners, Samuel and Isobel, are proud of their park and her baking and jams must be sampled. An attractive courtyard houses several unusual facilities including a sand pit and a straw loft play area for wet weather. Animal park, outdoor chess, tractor rides and go-karts in the fields. This is an ideal park for families, especially in school holidays, offering children and adults alike the opportunity to feed the animals (goats, lambs, ducks, chickens and donkey). It is a peaceful holiday base from which to explore the sunny southeast, including the historic city of Kilkenny, renowned for its history and craftwork, Kells Abbey and Dunmore Caves. The village of Bennettsbridge is 3 km. with shops and eating places. There is easy access to Waterford city, famous for its crystal.
