There’s a reason this place came in at 2nd in our guide to 9 of the most scenic campsites in Ireland.

You’ll find the award-winning Clifden Eco Beach nestled among some sand dunes on the beautiful Connemara coast.

It’s from this gorgeous campsite that you can chill for a couple of nights for the price of a few pints (info below) and soak up some breathtaking, panoramic seascape views.

The campsite is located a handy 10 minutes from the buzzy little town of Clifden and just 2 minutes from Claddaghduff, so there’s plenty to see and do if you make this place your base for a few nights.

A very unique and peaceful location

Imagine hopping out of your sleeping bag in the morning, brewing up a coffee and then taking a short stroll down to the crystal clear water above?!

Or kicking back in a little camping chair with a beer as the sun starts to set over the water right next to your tent!

According to the host, the campsite’s ‘unique location and relaxed atmosphere provide a true semi-wild eco camping adventure. Here, the visitor can discover real peace with nature, with vast open spaces, natural beauty, spectacular sunsets and cosy campfires, under a star-friendly sky’.

The campsite is operated in a sustainable fashion and it’s a gold-certified member of Sustainable Travel Ireland.
