Ireland, but owner Cathal O’Dolan told us they owed a

Park when we started. They set the standard that we aspired to.”

reckoning that spotless facilities are the key to running a successful

site was confirmed by one of his guests, who told him: “You have a

customer base, people take pride in the park.”
