My family and I had a brilliant time staying with Sally and Dave in their beautiful yurt village in Cape Clear. Our 5 and 3 year old found the whole yurt experience to be a great adventure and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and well equipped the yurt and camp site were. I would definitely recommend it to...

We have stayed at this amazing campsite on 3 occasions, first time camping and then staying in the yurts. The location is phenomenal with gorgeous views over the water, we even saw a basking shark right below our yurt on our 2nd stay. Sally and Dave are fantastic, very friendly, welcoming and accomodating. Dying to get back again!

Just returned from a wonderful stay in Cape Clear. We were recommended to stay in the yurts and I have to say it was all we expected and more. Sally, Dave and Lindy couldn't do enough. The location is second to none. The yurts themselves are truly amazing. My two boys (5 & 3) had an absolute ball. Cannot wait...

Sally and David and their pooches are the best hosts you can find and the campsite is perfect for families with pets. It was such a pleasure to wake up and look out at the stunning view while brewing our coffee and meeting new friends every morning. All members of the family were relaxed, happy and enjoying themselves here. We'll...

We had a fabulous stay at Chleire Haven, Four great days staying in one of the yurts which had everything you needed for a great getaway. Proper beds, a woodburner that heated the yurt in minutes and a breathtaking view literally outside your beautifully decorated door. You had your own generous decking area with a picnic table for your meals...
