Welcome To Portlick Scout Campsite
Situated on the Eastern shores of Lough Ree, Portlick Scout Campsite is widely regarded as one of the finest facilities of it’s kind in Ireland. Our Campsite was opened over 12 years ago and since then, thousands of young people from all over Ireland and beyond have enjoyed the Portlick experience – now it’s your turn! 14 acres of camping space, 3 acres of forestry, and 1 acre of private shoreline are just some of the ingredients that go to make Portlick Scout Campsite such a special place.
What are the other ingredients? Well maybe it’s the Kayaking, Archery, Crate Stacking, Waterslide, Zipline, Gladiator Challenge, Climbing Wall, Obstacle Course, Field Sports, Football Fusion, Pioneering, Orienteering, Raft Building, Bivvying or Campfire? Or maybe it’s just the fresh country air, the morning dew on the grass, the gentle breeze that comes in over the lake, the warmth of a sunny day or the raindrops falling from the vast sky? Whatever it is a visit to Portlick Scout Campsite will stay with you, and give you fond memories for years to come! When are you coming to visit us?
Since it’s opening, the management team at Portlick Scout Campsite led my John Butler have constantly striven to develop the site into one of the best in the country. Investment in professional kitchen facilities, field kitchen, fully serviced indoor and outdoor dining, showers and toilet facilities, are complemented by an 2,100 sq ft indoor area with chilled food storage facilities. These are just some of the recent upgrades and improvements made.
