Party Size / Age Restrictions
We cater for families, couples and small groups generally not exceeding 4 people. All group bookings must be pre-booked and agreed by management.
A maximum block booking of 3 pitches is allowable, however due to our layout and booking system unfortunately we cannot guarantee that caravans/motorhomes/tents booked in together will be directly beside each other on the Park. Persons aged under 18 years of age accompanied by adult family members who will be responsible for their conduct are welcome. The maximum caravan/motorhome occupancy will be applicable to all bookings with one number caravan/tent per pitch.
We have a limited number of pitches for twin axle caravans, please contact reception to discuss this. As a registered tourist facility, we are unable to accommodate Commercial Vehicles, or other non-tourist units.
Cancellations / Amendments
A minimum of 7 days written notice (letter or email), in advance of the arrival date will be required from anyone wishing to cancel their booking. If more than 7 days’ notice is given, the booking may be re-arranged to another available date within the season excluding Bank Holiday weekend, alternatively a refund can be given minus a €5.00 administration charge. Cancellations within 7 days of customers’ arrival date will not be transferable or refunded unless in exceptional circumstances such as serious illness or family bereavement. (Appropriate documentation e.g. a medical note must be forwarded in order to process this refund, minus a e5.00 administration charge.). Customers are advised to have insurance cover in the event of cancellation. Refunds cannot be made for any amendments made to the booking on arrival, during stay or early departure.
Unfortunately failure to arrive without explanation or written cancellation, cannot be dealt with through transfer or refund. If notification not given and the pitch is not occupied by 10.00pm on the day following the day of expected arrival, payment is forfeited and we reserve the right to re-let the pitch.
Extensions can be arranged, subject to availability and possible relocation, although there is no guarantee that pitches can be extended beyond the date booked. If you wish to extend your stay, please check with Reception as soon as possible and we will endeavour to facilitate your request.
The following minimum stays apply: – Weekends – 2 nights – Bank holidays & Easter – 3 nights
Prices and Payment
All published prices include VAT and are subject to change without prior notification. The total amount payable is the same regardless of payment method.
For fully booked dates customers can be added to a waiting list and if any vacancies arise you will be notified by telephone.
Arrival / Late Arrivals
Your arrival is welcome from 1.00pm onwards. On arrival please check in at Reception where you will be asked to confirm your occupancy details and will be given a copy of the Park information, which you agreed to abide with by making a booking. Access to the Park will be permitted on receipt of payment in full and completion of check in on arrival. Only persons declared on the booking form can be accommodated. Except by prior arrangement, we will not have space if you arrive early. Reception is open until 7.00pm on weeknights, 8.30pm on Friday & Saturday and 7.00pm on Sunday. If you wish to arrive after this time please notify Reception by telephoning, 00 353 851655917 so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
All pitches must be vacated by 12 noon of the day of departure. A late check out of 4.00pm may be possible, please check with Reception on the morning of departure.
Customers will be informed of their pitch number on arrival, the pitch is allocated according to the specified requirements made at the time of booking and is determined by the computerised booking system. Whilst every effort will be made to meet specific requirements for a particular pitch e.g. proximity to facilities, unfortunately no guarantee can be given. All caravans/motorhomes must be set up in positions as indicated by staff. Before pitching please ensure you have checked your pitch number, confirmed on arrival, to avoid being asked to move should you have pitched in error.
All pitches are hard stands with water and 16amp electricity. Chemical Waste Disposal is located at a central point in the Park.
The majority of pitches can accommodate awnings and if required should be specified at the time of booking. Unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee caravanners an awning suitable pitch, particularly during peak occupancy. Please note no groundsheets or mats are permitted in awnings. During adverse weather conditions you may be requested to take your awning down, for your own safety and that of fellow guest. Please note that if an awning is booked, no refunds can be made if the awning is not put up.
