Castle Saunderson opened its doors in August 2012. It is a 34-acre site and state of the art building.

Contained on the 34-acre site is a camping area that is capable of having over 1,000 campers on the site at any one time. The camping grounds are fully serviced with water points and access roads for moving camping equipment. There are a toilet block and shower block solely for the use of campers on the site also with a capacity of 1,000 people. The perimeter of the building is sheltered from the elements and there are numerous places for campers to sit and socialise outdoors with an outstanding view down onto the campsites. There are charging points for devices on the front deck area of the building for campers. All of this is available for a camp fee of just €5 per person per night.

We also offer indoor accommodation here at Castle Saunderson. We have sleeping accommodation for up to 66 persons indoors, with 9 rooms that sleep 4 and 2 that sleep 6 upstairs, and 4 rooms that sleep 4 and 1 that sleeps 2 downstairs.
