Pal aan het meer met allerlei voorzieningen voor watersport. Voor de liefhebber is er regelmatig muziek - ook af en toe live - in de pub boven het receptie/sanitair gebouw. Grote verharde plaatsen. Sanitair direct bij de kampeerplaatsen sterk verouderd en ook niet altijd even schoon. Echter: in het grote gebouw - boven genoemd en direct aangrenzend en deel uitmakend ook van de camping - uitgebreide voorzieningen.

Super location on the lakeside with lovely views and a walk. Problem was the cold and rain.
Nice site with level, hard standing pitches. Electricity on a nice level pitch. Water nearby. Loos and washing facilities nice and clean but the doors opened directly outside. The block behind reception is much better. Wi-Fi only works near reception (great in the cold and rain when reception closed!). There is Wi-Fi in the sitting room but I had no access to the password. Shame the restaurant only opens for breakfast as we found Ballyshannon sadly run down and did not find a bakers, pub serving food or restaurant. There is a nice bar with a friendly owner, Owen Roes Bar & Next Door Off-Licence.

A pleasant site with good facilities. Some traffic noise from the N3 which runs along the edge of the site. Beware: the motion sensor which controls the lights in the sanitary block doesn\'t detect movement inside the shower cubicles, so you\'re liable to be plunged into darkness halfway through your shower. The camp restaurant appears to be a myth; it wasn\'t open when I was there, and showed no sign of having been open recently.

The toilet & shower facilities are little better than you would find in a town for the general public. There does not seem to be any security as i saw numerous cars drive around this site, day & night . Very overpriced for what is on offer. Will not use this site again. I spoke with French & Dutch motorhomers who both said it is no better than an aire.
We have traveled allover Europe & have been on countless ACSI sites & without doubt this by far the worst. High cost, low standards, rip-off.
This is not the way to promote tourism in Ireland.
