This was our final stop on our trip around Ireland and what a disappointment it was, far overpriced, extra euro for the shower with the coin boxes on a wall outside so either keep you clothes on and loose shower time or step outside naked to pay?.
The campers kitchen was unusable and filthy with a two burner ring which did not work, the laundry was similar with rubbish piled on the machines, did they work?, sorry I don\'t know as I would not use them anyway, would I go again?, definitely not!. a very rough site and surprised ACSI even list it.

A large site with direct access to the Lough. Ideal for those who like boating.

There are no marked pitches and the site probably gets quite full at weekends.

The village pub is very close but there are no other facilities in the village.

Spacious site on the shore of Lough Ree near Athlone. Easy to find, only 4 km from M6, exit 9. Excellent for fishing and boating. Short walk to Pub in Ballykeeran village. Extremely friendly helpful warden.

Travelling party: Group of friends

This site should never be rated 3 star. There were a lot more than 60 caravans as stated.
There was only 4 showers to cater for the 2 hundred or so people on site, and two of these were out of order. There was only one Drinking Water tap to fill containers etc. In our case we had to walk a distance of 150 yards to fill up each time. There were no rules and regulations in force, concequently
there was a lot of rowdiness untill the early hours of the morning, 4am on one morning.
My Family and i were very dissapointed and will never visit this site again unless there are some drastic changes. A very Irate Camper!!!
