Stayed here for one night. The place is clean and well laid out. Plenty of space for pitching a tent. It's right across the road from Mastersons pub which is handy if you don't plan on preparing your own food. Good basic facilities available. Would stay here agin.

Nice quiet location, close to beach and lots of walking. Very friendly and helpful owner. Not too big, close to a pub and restaurant with great food (Masterson's). Will be back!

We had rang Joe several weeks before heading down as we always do. And as with the weekend that was in it we couldn't book in. This we expected as we have been going here for about 8 years or more. On the big weekends it's first come first serve as Joe told us. So 12 of us from my... More

Spent 4 nights with the family on this site and the kids loved it, lots of other kids for them to make friends with and they spent a lot of time playing in the sand on the playground. The campsite is in a perfect location, direct access to a lovely beach and a pub just across the road witch has... More

I rang the owner Joe at about 2pm to see if there were any free tent pitches left for that night, as we were coming up short on accommodation. Owner Joe said he couldnt guarantee a spot but would try his very best as we were coming from Clare Island and wouldn't be able to get there until about 8pm.... More

We are just back from camping at Golden Strand. It was pretty busy but we managed to get a great spot with a seaview. We had a small tent, there was enough room for our tent and car. We got lovely neighbours too! The owner Joseph was lovely, very helpful man. Stopped by for a quick hello to make sure... More

Having stayed at this site for the August bank holiday with our dog I feel I have to give it an excellent rating. We were very well looked after by Joe as others have said here.....the site enjoys a fabulous beachside location nestled under a mountain. I found the facilities met our needs very well and we had a very... More

Achill Island's main appeal for us was the scenery and beauty. At first arrival, this campsite is set in a bleak spot. The campsite looks like an old fashioned holiday camp from the 1950s-a very blocky static caravan park with dedicated space for tourers, campers and motor homes with hooks ups. The weather is very changeable in Achill, when misty... More

Perfect place for stay. Quiet and nice. We will come back to that place definitely. We have a car converted to "the sleeping car". It was only one place around where we could stay without any problems!

I have camped all over Ireland and this is the first time I've paid to camp as I normally just pitch my little tent in a forest or sand dunes. I didn't mind paying this time as facility's such as toilets, showers, WiFi and waste disposal were available. But €18 a night is just a little over the top. I... More
