Great for a real Irish welcome in one of Europe's most attractive areas
The rugged south west coast of Ireland, and Killarney with its popular music pubs and great shopping areas, are all especially good without the summer crowds. This, along with the freshness of spring, is arguably the best time to visit this area, and what better way than in the company of like-minded ralliers?
Rally Stewards will be Steve and Dawn Cash. Rally pitches located together in the hardstanding area. Grass pitches in an adjacent area may be available when the main rally area is full, or for tents. Previous rally activities have included trips to Irish music and dancing evenings, the Lakes of Killarney, the Dingle peninsula, Kate Kearney's Cottage, Garinish Island and Cobh harbour as well as the nearby Gap of Dunloe. On site there may be quizzes, American suppers and other get-togethers

We stayed on 4 different sites during our trip to Ireland. This was a much busier site than the first (Ballinacourty House).
That's to be expected as it is close to Killarney & on the Ring of Kerry. It is a popular holiday destination.
The site itself is quite busy. The hard standings are concrete with grass at the side for your awning. There is not much room between pitches and some can seem a bit closed in because of the high banking. The site is on a hill but all the pitches are level and the hard standings have there own waste drain which ends up under the caravan, useful for motorhomes I expect.
The showers are individual cubicles that you access directly from outside plenty big enough but the coin box is outside (very annoying) but plenty of time for a shower at 1euro for 7 minutes.
There are grass pitches which if I visited again would probably prefer, they seemed more open and less crowded than the hardstandings.
Very friendly and helpful reception.
There is also a hostel on site which meant the washing machines were kept busy.
The site was directly off the main road but we never noticed any road noise,
The main draw of this site is it's location within County Kerry. If we returned to the area we may use it again but on a different pitch (although we did choose it ourselves, perhaps learn to have a good look next time)
There is plenty to do in the area. Killarney park is within walking/cycling distance. Killarney itself is a busy place and quite touristy.
We didn't find it busy at all once away from the immdiate Killarney/Killarney Park area.
The coast including Dingle peninsula and Valentia Island is all within easy reach in a car.
The Ring of Kerry is a lovely drive although pick your day as the weather can cover all the views. We drove over Conor pass on the Dingle peninsula but never found out how scary/beautiful it was as we could barely see the car in front as the cloud was so low.
