Skibbereen is a bustling market town, where visitors can enjoy superb shopping and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants,

- 5 STARS for Helen & Skibb – Stayed here 23 days while exploring the area and getting some R&R. This campsite is well run, spotless, Dog friendly and is only a short walk into Skibb town centre, brilliant market there on Saturday mornings and everything you want in that great town. The campsite is clean has a fantastic run area for dogs. Also there is a great playground for kids. The traveler facilities are perfect and the site layout is very beautiful, the hedges are lovely and create privacy for a solo female traveler with a dog Helen the owner was a valuable resource and is a very helpful no nonsense kinda lady who runs a tight ship, place is spotless, flowers are a lovely touch in shower/toilet area, Highly recommend this spot. See you 2022

A BIG 5 starts from us for sure! – Unable to find a house to rent in West Cork we took the adventurous option and rented a campervan for the family (2 + 2 girls). With a few nerves, given it was our first time renting a camper van, we headed off to Skibbereen to stay at The Hideaway Camping & Caravan Park our base for the trip. Best decision ever! The facilities were top class, spotless and well managed from a Covid perspective, great shower and away from home facilities, and there was plenty to occupy children as well. Helen and Stephen were super hosts and couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly and this friendliness spreads amongst the guests. We were particularly lucky to have landed next to a couple who went out of their way to help us novices get properly acquainted with our campervan which was very much appreciated. A BIG 5 stars from us for sure!
