A great base for Dublin and beyond
A spacious and secure site with an airy feel, adjoining the 300-acre public Corkagh Park and with views to the hills. Convenient either as a stop en route to all areas of the Emerald Isle, or for a longer stay to visit Dublin with its lovely Georgian architecture, lively Temple Bar district and tours of the famous Guinness brewery. Good day trips are the Wicklow hills and the Irish National Stud

Wi-Fi not on all pitches (free)
Normally, when booking in on any site you are either escorted to your pitch, given a pitch number or shown your pitch on a site map. None of these happened to us and we were simply told to 'go anywhere' which I though was unusual. I toured the site and found a pitch. Half way through setting up camp, a female staff member appeared on a buggy, abruptly telling us we could not camp there. I explained what we had been told at reception but she told me that was not the case. I thought this odd because she was not in reception when we booked in!
We had to take our tent down and move it, which was an unnecessary faff.
The site is located next to the N7 dual carriageway which is as busy as any UK motorway and also not far from a military airbase. There is therefore a constant din of traffic and aircraft operating 24/7, including low flying helicopters, so do not expect a quiet time.
The site also lacks any form of shop for essentials such as bread or milk and the nearest shopping area is Clondalkin town about 2 miles away.
On the plus side the site is on a bus route direct into Dublin and also the city tour bus stops at the site. It is located on the edge of Crokagh Park which is beautiful, well kept and large. The Wifi around the main reception is very good and the facilities are as expected, clean if a little tired in places. The showers cost extra, using tokens. Security appeared good with barrier access and CCTV cameras and the entire site is surrounded by high hedging.

booked site via email Saturday night prompt reply for our stay the next day
very friendly welcome and happy to advice about local area and tourists sites in the city
all the pitches are very large and fully serviced free wi fi available on site but were warned if you wanted it you would need to have a pitch by the toilet block or reception we were happy to go up to the reception where we never had a problem
toilet facilities are a little dated but clean with excellent disabled facilities the down side the showers were large but not very powerful and cost 1.5euro again could do with an update
This is a city site so you do have to expect bit of noise the site is close to the motorway which meant there is quite a lot of road noise but you ignore it after awhile and not that bad when you are in the van (probably best avoid if you are someone that stresses about noise and prefers peace and quiet )
Having said that the site is next to large parkland with fishing lakes walks a rose garden and small pet area for those who want to keep fit there are two outside gyms
there is village with several pubs in walking distance
the open top tourist bus leaves the site at 9.30 every morning and costs 2euros or the bus stop at the gates run every hour costs 3.05euro again the very helpful reception staff will let you know all the details you just have to ask would recommend and use again
took about 40mins to get to ferry port
