Camping with beautiful views weather permits. Located by the beach. Surfing lessons were available in July. Weatherwise very windy place. Toilets clean but only few however in 2 blocks for amount of people. Well worth a visit. Road on Achill leading to camping a total disaster, potholes and very uneven so watch your speed and road if towing caravan or you will destroy your van.

Tip gekregen van Dhr Aneca en zijn echtgenote toen we hen op de camping van Doolin hadden ontmoet.
Zeer mooie omgeving met uiteraard veel wind waar je als tent-kampeerder wel rekening moet mee houden.
Ideaal voor de surfers en mensen die willen genieten van de prachtige wilde natuur van de omgeving aan de kust.
Sanitair en keukenvoorzieningen zijn meer dan voldoende en er zijn eetgelegenheden en take-away\'s in de nabije omgeving.

Large open site by Keel\'s Blue Flag beach on Achill Island, popular with surfers and cyclists. A beautiful position below some of Ireland\'s highest cliffs. Short walk into village for shop and restaurants (not all open in May).
Good facilities, with a campers\' kitchen, TV and games room, etc. Convenient motorhome service point with water hose and waste disposal.
WiFi worked well throughout site, for a small charge.
Reasonably priced, with loyalty offers.

Heerlijke camping vlak aan zee. Met leuke schapen die 2 x dag langs lopen. Leuke fiets routes en wandeling kan vanaf de camping maken. De wind heeft vrij spel je moet daar dus niet bang van zijn.

This campsite is in the most amazing location you can imagine. It is just behind the dunes of Keel beach, where the cliffs form a magnificant backdrop. The beach is excellent for surfing and body boarding. There is a very new children's playground next door to the campsite, with all the latest types of climbig equipment and swings, which is a bonus. We visited at a quiet time just after the May bank holiday, and the place was very clean and tidy. Unfortunately the games room was not open. The facilities were perfectly adequate and very clean and The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are 2 pubs, a hotel, a cafe and a small supermarket all within walking distance. The best thing about this campsite is definitely its location. Achill is simply one of the most stunning landscapes in Ireland.
