The best of what Europe offers campervanners will soon be available in Ireland thanks to John Brennan at Dromquinna Manor in Kenmare. With a reported investment of EU2.5million, the former country estate is currently being transformed into the ultimate Recreational Vehicle Resort. With many years of experience in the hospitality business through Hotel management, John (who also happens to co-present the popular ‘At Your Service’ on RTE TV) knows what’s required to attract families to this new Count Kerry facility.
Not only will there be a fixed price (EU30) for overnight accommodation (that includes Electricity, Showers etc), the 30 acre site will have a host of activities for all the family to enjoy. Nature trails, mountain biking, watersports are just some of the recreational activities to explore while along by the redeveloped Marina, a Wine bar and Restaurant will add to the pleasurable experience. For those who wish to take an alternative method of transport into Kenmare, a water taxi will take you across the bay.
Set for opening in April 2012, around 100 large pitches will be ready, each with its own secluded fully serviced area, while a separate parking section for caravans will be provided. Also along the waterfront will be a dedicated Glamping (glamorous camping) park that will attract newcomers to camping.
Ireland has seen nothing like this before – get ready for a new level of campervanning at Dromquinna Manor Resort.
