Camper Van and Recreational Vehicle Park in Portumna shortlisted for Chambers Ireland’s Excellence in Local Government Awards 2017
The recently refurbished Portumna Marina and Camper Van Recreational Park at Castle Marina in Portumna has been shortlisted for an Excellence in Local Government Awards 2017 of Chambers Ireland. This project led by Galway County Council and involving Waterways Ireland, the OPW, Failte Ireland and the Lough Derg Strategic Marketing Group is the first 'Aires' type facility managed by a local authority in Ireland. It was developed in response to the increasing prevalence of Recreational Vehicles and Camper Vans now found in Ireland and offers 18 fully serviced parking bays for the vehicles at a very popular scenic location beside Portumna Castle, Lough Derg and Portumna Forest Park.
Parking bays have been installed for 18 camper vans, with electrical and water points to service these vehicles. The existing marina and toilet block was upgraded to make it more attractive for boat users to visit and moor overnight. The area was landscaped to make it a more attractive location for day trippers to visit and engage with the surrounding attractions listed above.
