Nouveau parking, fraîchement pavé et marquage RV attribué. Peut-être pour les services, juste une mise à jour : j'ai parlé aux employés du conseil local. Ceci est un parc de camping-cars officiel, bon pour les affaires locales. Il y a des toilettes publiques au port à environ 300 m sur les parkings séparés qui sont décrits pour le port. Ceux-ci sont verrouillés la nuit.

New parking lot, freshly paved and assigned RV markings. Maybe for services, just an update: I spoke to the local council workers. This is an official RV park, good for local business. There are public toilets at the port about 300m away at the separate parking lots that are described for the port. These are locked at night.

Neuer Parkplatz, frisch geteert und Markierungen für Wohnmobile zugewiesen. Vielleicht für Dienstleistungen, nur ein Update: Ich sprach mit dem Gemeinderat Arbeiter. Das ist ein offizieller Wohnmobil-Parkplatz, gut für das lokale Geschäft.

Öffentliche Toiletten gibt es am Hafen ca. 300m entfernt an den separaten Parkplätzen, die für den Hafen beschrieben werden. Diese werden Nachts verschlossen.

    6 dedicated parking spots for RV and campers. Close to shops, pubs and toilets. The parking is well lit at night, very quiet and safe, provided for free by the council to attract tourism. We visited McCartys pub on the main street with out Lab and we were warmly welcomed. The Guinness there was fab too, a perfect pint. Lots of interesting walks in the area and this is a working port too.

    Fabulous flat car park which was free. Large designated motorhome spaces. Close to lots of pubs, McCarthys allowed dogs, the pub landlady and staff were very friendly, as were the locals.

    un endroit parfait pour faire une pause ! Qu'elle soit courte ou pour la nuit. Merci à la commune !

    A lovely clean and well laid out parking area beside the river. Very quiet and peaceful and right at the edge of the town. Well done Castletown-Bearhaven, it's a pity other towns/villages don't follow your example.

    Great stopover, 6 spaces I think, hardstanding with marked bays, close to restaurants and right on harbour for Bere Island ferry, which is great.

    Mooi initiatief van de stad , 6 plaatsen op mooi asfalt gereserveerd voor campers . Mooi zicht op het water en zeer rustig. Mooi om in het stadje te wandelen .

    Es ist ein schöner sauberer Platz

    Great free overnight stop, stayed the max 48 hours. Felt safe, quiet at night, flat, lovely view over the water. Took ferry to Bere Island for Parkrun, great experience. Walked down the road to the castle ruins, beautiful place for a picnic. Ate out in the town then had a crêpe from the stall in the market place.

    standen hier bei sehr stürmischen Wetter. es gibt etwas Schutz durch Mauern. einfacher Stellplatz, aber immerhin mit Platz drumherum und nah bei der Stadt und Fährmöglichkeiten auf die Insel

    Very nice place spot in the middle of town. Very quiet at night and the toilets only 5 min away. Quite full as well, even out of season!

    Quiet at night, surrounded by houses. The lamps are so bright that I didn’t even need my reading light. There were 4 other campers with me. Good internet connection

  • 5/5

    Schön gelegen, direkt am Wasser und wenige Schritte ins Zentrum.

  • 5/5

    What a great initiative and location. Designated 48h motor home parking, free, safe, quiet and 2 min walk to local services & loos. Wish more towns would do this. We made sure to spend our money in local shops in return.

  • 5/5

    Parfait pour une nuit ou deux.l’endroit est paisible à quelques pas de la ville, bars et restaurants.

  • 5/5

    Lovely spot - the town has everything you need. Only issue is the bright street lights in the car park on all night. It did feel very safe but might interrupt some peoples sleep

  • 4/5

    Ideal for stopping for the night when passing through. Dedicated motorhome parking spaces. Public toilets not that close, we parked for the evening by the toilets and drove here to sleep!

  • 5/5

    C’est parfait et très calme. Un grand merci à la commune .

  • 5/5

    Fabulous overnight parking spot. Easy walk to local pubs and restaurants. Public toilets close by and excellent supermarket for anything you need. Definitely recommend.

  • 5/5

    Nice clean quiet safe spot. central to shops , harbour.

  • 5/5

    Great spot. Very quiet carpark. Max stay 48hrs. So handy to access town for food & a few pints. Public toilets only 350m away at the port.

  • 5/5

    Lovely spot overlooking the river. Shared carpark but very quiet all the same. Felt safe and 2 other womos here. Max stay is 48hrs! No facilities but there are toilets in the harbour area which is short walk. Some noise from fishing boats, but adds to the experience. Small town with all usual shops, cafes etc. Thursday is market day!

  • 5/5

    Excellent area if you don't need services (water point and toilets nearby). Well done Cork County Council in providing marked parking spaces for motor homes. 5/5 for not charging, and peace of mind. Nice walks nearby. Ferry to Bere Island. Great cycling area. Town has lots of places to eat.

    This is a medium size carpark with parking for about 25 cars over-looking a small bay with 6 dedicated motorhome parking spaces marked in yellow. Maximum stay is 48 hours. The parking is fairly level. Even so we had to use our chocks for the shower drain as we need to have a slight dip at the front. There are no services and no bins. Pros: Free parking. Toilets at the port. Water tap at the port. Supermarkets, takeaways, pubs and cafes are a short walk away. Some walks. Cons: No services. No bins. There are clean public toilets at the port. There is also a water tap with a long yellow hose at the port beside the docked trawlers. I enquired if this was drinking water and 2 local people said it was. So we filled up and we drink our water from the fresh . Spar and SuperValu have supermarkets here. All the local pubs serving food were open adhering to covid-19 regulations. The church was open during the day again adhering to covid-19 regulations. We went for an 8km loop walk on very quiet country roads downloaded from wikiloc.com. It was raining so the views were poor. The chips from the van (West Coast Grill) on the town square were disappointing as they were frozen and not freshly made. We spent 2 nights here. The first night a Thursday was very quiet and could hear the distant hum of the trawlers generators. The second night some local cars had noticeable music (not over loud) in the carpark. Bugs/Mosquitoes. (They love us..) Got one bite out for the hike but it was muggy. Other than that no other bites.

    Sehr ruhige Nacht verbracht. Öffentliche Toiletten, sehr sauber, in 260 m Entfernung. Leider kein Mülleimer .

  • 5/5

    Lovely free Aire. no facilities but a nice spot by river. we purchased family meals from the the nearby Indian take away, went to the bar down the road for drinks and live music (Friday night) then shopped at the local supermarket on the way out in the morning. Excellent :-) It would be great if they could put at least a fresh water supply and a drain in for future.

  • 5/5

    Lovely little town. Friendly and welcoming. Near a Chinese restaurant/take-away which is great value. Quiet location. Water tap and toilets can be found in parking lot in marina. Lots of local shops. Tourist information nearby.

  • 5/5

    Parking prévu avec au moins 6 emplacements larges, nuit très calme. Je confirme, pas de service et pas de poubelle. Les toilettes sont sur le port . On peut se garer devant.

  • 3/5

    Merci a la ville pour ces emplacements gratuits, du rares en Irlande. Espérons qu'ils seront bientôt dotés de vidanges d'eau Grise et Noire (toilets). Et pourquoi pas d'eau potable. Puisse la commune exaucer nos souhaits. Merci la ville

  • 3/5

    Les emplacements délimités sont très bien. Par contre nous n'avons pas trouvé a proximité, ni poubelle, ni toilettes publiques comme on pouvait s'y attendre en voyant les pictogrammes (icônes) de l'appli. A environ 800m il y a bien les toilettes publiques du port. mais faut traverser le village. La plupart des poubelles sont fermées a clé. On ignore encore pourquoi. En tout cas merci a la ville.

  • 5/5

    Great spot! I also recommend you have a coffee at The Tea Room and Dinner or lunch at Murphy’s about 200m down the road ?

  • 4/5

    Only had lunch here but it has been well set up in the model of many French village/small town Aires.

  • 5/5

    Kostenlos Parken und übernachten für Camper bis 48 Stunden. Nur wenige Fußschritte in den Ortskern.
