Cong Caravan & Camping Park

Cong Camping, Caravan & Glamping Park is a small family run Park located in an area of outstanding beauty – 1 mile from the beautiful village of Cong in Connemara. Cong was the only village listed on TripAdvisor's top 10 Irish destinations in 2018.


The village is an inland island surrounded by water, with quaint shops and cafes and historical ruins dating back as far the 12th Century.


The Park is very centrally located only 20 miles from the Wild Atlantic Way at Killary Harbour and 26 miles from Galway city and Westport – an ideal base from which to explore the west of Ireland, including the Aran Islands, Achill Island and the Marian Shrine at Knock. With the wonderful new motorway Cong is now only 2 and a half hours drive from Dublin.


Cong Camping, Caravan & Glamping Park is 5 minutes walk from Ireland's finest brown trout and salmon fishing on Lough Corrib and 10 minutes walk from the world famous Ashford Castle.


Hawk walks are a real treat at Ireland's School of Falconry at Ashford Castle and Cruises on Lough Corrib depart from Lisloughrey Quay 5 minutes walk from the Park.
