You're sure of a real Irish welcome at Fossa

Situated just outside popular Killarney with its traditional Irish music, pubs and food, and its wide range of shops. There are buses into Killarney that stop just outside the site entrance and plenty of local cycle routes. In an excellent location to explore this wonderful area of lakes, mountains and coast including the Dingle peninsula, the Ring of Kerry and the lovely mountain pass over the Gap of Dunloe. Everywhere there is beautiful scenery to enjoy, Irish culture to soak up and high quality outlet shopping. Day trips with local coach operators can be arranged through reception, with pick-up and drop-off at the campsite, which is ideal for motorhomers. Muckross House, one of Ireland's most renowned stately homes, set in the Killarney National Park, is only 5 miles away, with Torc waterfall nearby too.

This was our first visit to Ireland and found the site at Fossa really suited us.

This review is for Fossa

This was our first visit to Ireland and found the site at Fossa really suited us. It was ideal for being close to Killarney plus on the Ring of Kerry, we were able to visit a lot of historic sites plus see some really beautiful scenery. The staff we met where friendly and very helpful especially the gentleman in the office. Ideal site for a base to go round the Ring of Kerry. Thank you all at Fossa for making our stay enjoyable.

This was a lively campsite as you'd expect of this popular location.

This review is for Fossa

This was a lively campsite as you'd expect of this popular location. We enjoyed ourselves and did the ring of kerry in 2 halves. This wasn't anywhere near as busy as we'd been led to believe. The site has all you'd need. The showers were unusual inthat they are inividual cubicles you enter straight from outside. The one thing we personally dislike is having to pay extra for coin operated showers but it was ok although placing the coin box outside was slightly annoying. The hardstandings are concrete with a drain point and arranged on the diagonal so although some appear quite close they don't feel so close. There is space foe an awning on grass next to each pitch. We stayed in June which was during the Irish school holidays but the site wasn't to busy. Had we known the site before hand I think I would have preferred the grass pitches at the other side of the toilet blocks. We would return and it really was a great location.
