Desert House Caravan park Clonakilty

Desert House Caravan and Camping Park; sounds wonderful.  So why only two stars?  Excellent question!  Answer, rural it is -and small and it does not have 4 star amenities.

Dunmore East Caravan Park

The site is a field bounded by cliff, woods and a wood chipped outdoor playing [...]
