Lough Key Caravan and Camping Update
13th May 2021
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us and who have been waiting patiently for our responses regarding booking enquiries. Following the most recent Government announcement on the easing of restrictions, we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get our campsite ready as we look forward to welcoming all our campers back to Lough Key.
We have also been navigating our way through an abundance of enquiries and requests and now are delighted to announce that as of from Monday 17th May our booking system will reopen for new online bookings, initially for self-contained campervans and caravans only.
In line with physical distancing guidelines, we are not taking any tent bookings for the moment but we do envisage this opening up as the weeks progress into the summer.
We are officially reopening our campsite on June 4th for pre- bookings only but to note, this weekend is currently fully booked. Many of our weekend dates in July and August are also already full and we only have limited availability left for these months. When the booking engine reopens, if your dates are not available to book online, then unfortunately they are not available. We will always reopen spaces as soon as they become available and contact people from our enquiry lists.
Our plans can be subject to change given the ongoing public health situation. We hope you can understand our gradual reopening approach and the decisions we have made to keep within the guidelines of physical distancing and safety.
For general campsite or booking enquiries, please email your request to email@example.com, where our team will be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.
- We are working hard to ensure we have all measures in place to create a safe environment for you our visitors and our staff. We hope that you will work with us in adhering to the safety procedures and respect each other’s space. DO NOT travel to our facility if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, or if you have been around someone with Covid-19 symptoms.
- Our hard-standing pitches are laid beautifully with the natural landscape allowing for natural physical distancing
- Our indoor communal areas with our toilets and indoor kitchen will be open. However, we are asking customers in camper vans/caravans to be as self-contained as possible, by using your own toilets, cooking facilities and sinks for washing up and sanitary purposes. Our indoor games room and laundry facilities remain closed.
- Good hand hygiene is required at all times. Hand sanitising stations will be located at various points around the campsite. Guests will also be required to wear masks when inside communal areas or when in contact with staff.
- All areas of our campsite communal areas including the shower block will continuously undergo a rigorous cleaning regime daily.
- Upon arrival or at any given time, we ask for your assistance in that only one guest is to approach the reception. There will be a socially distanced outdoor queuing system in place with shelter, guests are asked to adhere to this. Check-in peak time is from 5pm- 8pm. Try and avoid this time to reduce traffic.
- Every effort will be made to ensure everyone can enjoy their visit and stay safe and well. Remember social distancing is required throughout our campsite and park, children must be supervised and made aware of this. Those who do not comply with these rules will be asked to leave without a refund.
- All bookings must be made online and paid in full prior to arrival. Campers have up to 24 hours before arrival date to cancel for free otherwise the full amount will be taken.
The visitor centre will remain temporarily closed – this includes Boda Borg, Adventure Play Kingdom and the indoor Café. There will be an outdoor Food Truck serving hot food, a coffee cart and confectionery kiosk. Our outdoor terrace will be open with stunning views of the lake.
The Lough Key experience which includes the Viewing tower and Tree Canopy walk will be open and tickets can be purchased on the day.
Along with our vast woodlands, walking trails, numerous islands and historical landmarks, there is the recently developed ‘cycle-way’, a fabulously scenic route, joining Lough Key to the town of Boyle via the Boyle canal ideal for all ages to use.

CARAVAN PARK – (normal times 😊)
Our Campsite Park is generally open seasonally from Easter to October every year, comprising of 46 landscaped secluded pitches with newly appointed electricity points offering lots of privacy and three large separate tenting areas in a scenic woodland setting.
Whilst, we do not supply individual electric for tents, accommodations can be looked into. In the event of special/medical circumstances, we will endeavor to arrange something to suit, but it may not always be possible. Our campsite facilities have all mod cons, and we provide free charging points for mobile phones and electronic devices. Our camper’s kitchen on site also has two freezers and a large fridge available for campers to use and share.
Onsite is a recreational block with an indoor space for games or dining including a pool table and vending machines. The building has a renovated shower block with bathrooms, a small cooking area and laundry room. Picnic tables are allocated around the site for personal use.
The Campsite is located about approx. 500 metres from the lake front and Visitors Centre boasting a whole range of unique and fun attractions and activities for all ages including the Lakeside café.
All bookings must be made online and paid in full prior to arrival. Campers have up to 24 hours before arrival date to cancel for free otherwise the full amount will be taken.
