A Warm Welcome Awaits Your Arrival…
Hidden Valley is a serene haven of relaxation. Set in a beautiful valley with sites overlooking the tranquil waters of the Avonmore River and a glassy, private lake, we offer the opportunity to experience a holiday amid an abundance of wildlife including kingfishers, cranes, wild geese, ducks, otters and pheasant. We are easily accessible from Dublin, Dun Laoghaire and Rosslare ferry ports.

  • We regret to inform you that campfires are no longer allowed at Hidden Valley. This past season we noticed far too often the number of people being negligent in regards to fire safety. Customers may still bring charcoal BBQ’s (no timber burning is permitted).
  • Read our Terms & Conditions before you Check Availability.

The park offers both hard-standing and grass sites, each with electric, water and grey waste. We also have a tent only area with electric. The modern toilet and shower block is heated and tiled, and also includes a laundry room and camper’s kitchen overlooking the Avonmore river.

We DO NOT cater for adult/teen groups, hens/stags or those who are looking to stay up at night past our strict family curfew. We have a strict noise curfew from 10 p.m. and we DO NOT tolerate any behaviour at any time that disturbs neighbouring families (including, but not limited to, foul language, rowdy behaviour etc.).

If you book an electric pitch, then you need to supply your own camping lead. Your camping lead needs to have a round blue 3-pin plug on one end that connects into our electric bollard as shown. This camping lead is standard throughout Europe. If you haven’t bought your camping lead yet, then we recommend buying a camping lead that is at least 15m long (this is plenty long for pitches on our park, however other parks may need longer). We do not sell camping leads, so please see your nearest camping shop.
