FAQ Camping

1 Where is Dromquinna Manor?

Dromquinna Manor sits on a 38-acre coastal estate 5km west of the Heritage Town of Kenmare on the famous Ring of Kerry in the southwest of Ireland

 

2 What is there to do there?

Dromquinna Manor is filled with things to do regardless of your age. Please visit our Amenities page for further details.

 

3 Do I need a car?

Not really. At Dromquinna Manor we are only 5km from Kenmare which has a good taxi service.  Tours can be arranged for the famous Ring of Kerry and Ring of Beara coastal drives if you want to tour the area.

 

4 Where do I go to eat?

On The Estate we have our Boathouse Wine Bar & Bistro which serves delicious dishes overlooking the water. In addition we have a guest kitchen and covered barbecue area where you can create memorable meals. Kenmare is Ireland’s only town with more restaurants than bars, that is some statement. With over 40 places to dine you are spoilt for choice.

 

5 Can I bring food?

Yes, of course you can bring food. You can use the guests kitchen and dining facility or barbecue in the communal area. Due to the nature of the Estate campfires and barbecues are not permitted outside of these designated areas. The Shop also sells essencials so you are covered.

 

6 Can I bring a boat or kayak?

Yes, and we would be delighted if you did. The Estate is directly on the water and has a boat slip, Fun Beach, pier, moorings and enjoys the calm waters of Kenmare Bay.

 

7 Is there a Beach?

The coast of Kenmare Bay is rocky so natural sand beaches are in short supply. You can swim in the sea at Dromquinna but the closest beach is 45km away but worth a day trip in the summer.

 

8 Do I need to bring bed linen?

All linen is supplied and a Toiletries Hamper will be waiting for your arrival. 

 

9 Where are the washing facilities?

Toilets and washing facilities are located within a short distance of the camping area.

 

10 Have the tents toilets?

The tents do not have private toilets but a very nice night toilet is located beside the tents.

 

11 What can we do if it is raining?

We have a Games Room with a Pool Table and Football Table in addition to other games.  There is also a reading room with a selection of books and magazines for your enjoyment.
